Bug Bites Snack

This creative little recipe for a dragonfly snack, fresh from Bean Appetit, is a delicious summer appetizer that'll make your kids' imagination take flight!

Tired of those insatiable little insects that feast during the warm months in southeast Michigan? Well, now parents and kids can chomp back – without so much as hurting a fly! – with the crafty Bug Bites Snack.

This super-cute recipe comes from Shannon Payette Seip and Kelly Parthen, the kids' cooking gurus behind Bean Sprouts. In their clever book Bean Appétit: Hip and Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food. Featuring darling details like pita bread wings, a turkey rollup body and little matchstick carrots for antennae, it incorporates oodles of children's favorite foods. Not to mention, it's incredibly easy – and fun! – for them to get in on the prep work in the kitchen with mom or dad.

Definitely better smelling (and tasting!) than bug spray, the Bug Bite Snack is a primo appetizer to create with your own little critters.
