Servings: 4

Prep Time: 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 box (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1/2 cup ground chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreos)
  • Cantaloupe slices
  • Unsalted mini pretzels
  • Red grapes, cut in half
  • Raspberries and blueberries
  • Fresh mint (optional)

Supplies

  • 1 1/2-inch flower cookie cutter
Tip: To save a step, you can buy prepared pudding in the refrigerator section of your supermarket.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Adults can help kids prepare the pudding mix with the milk, according to package directions.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon the pudding into four bowls. Kids can sprinkle the top of each bowl of pudding with the ground chocolate cookies. Using a flower cookie cutter, help kids cut 1 1/2-inch flower shapes from the cantaloupe slices. Cut 1 1/2-inch triangles from the scraps.

  3. Step 3

    Arrange 2 mini pretzels like butterfly wings on top of the chocolate cookie crumbs. Add the melon triangle as the body and half a grape as the head. Add several melon flowers, raspberries, and blueberries on top of the cookie crumbs as well. Add a few mint leaves as the flower leaves.

Tip: Parents may want to slice and shape the cantaloupe before assembling the rest of the ingredients. To make thin slices, cut the ends off the cantaloupe and use a sharp knife to cut off the rind. Cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds, and then slice it as thin as you like.
