Kid-stuffed crescents

That's crescent rolls stuffed by kids, not stuffed with kids-a fun and relatively healthy snack time activity.
When I suggest a food-related activity for my kids, if it's not cookies or other sweet food, I try to make sure it has some novel elements to it. For instance, I don't think my kids have ever seen a package of crescent rolls so I knew this had the novelty factor working for us. Communal bowls of food are outside of routine and therefore fun, and finally the creative license allowed in making these snacks followed by some rolling action made this a winner.
I recently purchased a can of Pillsbury crescents to have on hand for this project. Today we needed an activity (and a snack) so I scrambled up some eggs with frozen hash browns, pulled out some leftover cooked broccoli, shredded cheese, and a little bowl of jelly. The kids and I pulled apart the rolls and placed them on a baking sheet, they spooned on the fillings of their choice and rolled them up. While I baked the stuffed rolls, the kids actually sat at the table and ate the remaining stuffing ingredients (!). Yes, they spooned some jelly straight from the bowl into their mouth, but I figured I could let that slide since they were also finishing off the broccoli and eggs.
When the rolls were finished, we all (with slight exceptions, as jelly and broccoli combined are not terrible in small doses), enjoyed eating them.

Wrapped-up food is the best. We'll have to make more when I get there!

You're brilliant! What a great way to get kids to eat the stuff that's good for them!

That's genius! I made Chicken Cheesy Crescents for dinner the other night and the kids really loved them (not so much my husband)!

My daughter makes chocolate croissants for dessert by putting chocolate chips into crescent rolls and rolling them up. Yummy and simple.

To hone logic, supported with open minds and a lot to learn. For logic that is already extensive, balance it with humility
