Snack time plus craft time is always a winner in our house. That’s why I am excited to share the cutest snack, Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich, and our no-carve Forky Pumpkin.
This post is sponsored by Farm Rich, but all of the fun we had was our own.
Isn’t he the cutest? We just love Forky!
Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich
My girls were excited to see the Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich and even more excited to eat them! Mozzarella sticks are usually a restaurant treat, so having them at home in the shape of Toy Story 4 characters was a big deal for a Wednesday afternoon snack.
It was so easy, and they were so excited we will have to make this a regular snack.
All my kids care about is the taste, but I was happy to learn that the Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich have received the “Mickey Check” of good nutrition. They’re made with 100 percent real mozzarella cheese with a whole grain-rich coating, are a good source of calcium (25 percent daily value) and have 14 grams of protein per serving. That means they are an easy snack all three of my kids will gobble up that I can feel good about.
Of course, Sissy wanted to know if the Mozzarella Shapes included another favorite character (not an easy food shape!), but she loved seeing Bunny as a snack. (If you haven’t seen Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4, he’s one of the new hilarious characters.) Woody’s Hat and Space Aliens are also represented.
Pick up a box (or two) of Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich at HyVee, Meijer, Piggly Wiggly, Wegmans, Weis, Albertsons/Safeway, Food Lion, Stop & Shop, Giant Eagle, Shaws, Hannaford, Harris Teeter or online at Amazon Fresh.
No-Carve Forky Pumpkin
You guys, this adorable Forky Pumpkin is doing double duty. Not only do I get to share this fun tutorial Forky Pumpkin we made with you, but Sissy is going to use it for a school project. (YES! Score one for mom.) This seasoned second-grade mom knows she will need to make a book character pumpkin at the end of the month so BOOM we are ahead of the game. And let’s face it, being ahead is a mom’s dream come true.
Other than the hot glue, this is a fun no-carve pumpkin for kids to make because it’s like playtime.
- Large red pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes (2 sizes)
- Air-dry clay – red and blue
- Hot glue gun
- White paint (optional)
- Tape (optional)
If using a real pumpkin (or a faux orange pumpkin), the first step is to paint your pumpkin white. I used a faux white pumpkin for our Forky Pumpkin.
Tape the googly eyes onto the pumpkin temporarily to determine placement.
Roll red clay to form Forky’s eyebrows. Set aside to dry, just enough to hold shape.
Roll blue clay to form Forky’s mouth. Set aside to dry, just enough to hold shape.
Bend pipe cleaners to form Forky’s hands and arms. At the end of the arm, form a circle to attach to the pumpkin.
Take a break to enjoy the Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Mozzarella Shapes from Farm Rich.
This part is a parent’s job — hot glue Forky’s arms to each side of the pumpkin. Hot glue eyebrow and mouth in place, and then hot glue googly eyes into place.
Seriously, I adore Forky. So glad he will be part of our Halloween decor this year.
