I love this idea of making apples look like french fries not only is it a yummy snack but I’m sure your Cub will have to take a second look before they realize they aren’t getting those fried spuds and are getting a yummy sweet snack instead!

Apple Fries

What you’ll need:

  • 2 apples
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel apples and cut into sticks with a crinkle cutter.
  3. Toss with cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake 8-12 minutes in a 400F oven.
  6. Drizzle with strawberry preserves (to look like ketchup) if desired.

Here’s where we found this fun idea:

Jello Worms!

  • 150 Flexible Straws
  • 1 package Raspberry Jello
  • Whipping Cream
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 3 packages Unflavoured Gelatin
  • 1 Mason Jar (I used a 4 cup mason jar)


  • 1 package Raspberry Jello (the regular sized box, not the large box)
  • 3 packages Unflavoured Gelatin
  • 3 cups Boiling Water
  • 125 Flexible Straws
  • ¾ cup Whipping Cream
  • 15 drops Green Food Colouring
  • 1 Wide Mouth Mason Jar (4 cup size) or Round Cylindrical Glass Vase (the dollar store will have something)


  1. In a large measuring cup, combine the Jello and the unflavoured gelatin.
  2. Add the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes or until lukewarm.
  4. Stretch each of the straws open to extend the flexible parts and then put the straws into the mason jar with the flexible side closer to the bottom.
  5. Add the green food colouring to the whipping cream and stir until combined. (Just stir it, don’t whip it).
  6. Pour the whipping cream mixture into the Jello mixture and stir until it’s well combined.
  7. Pour the mixture through the top of the straws until it fills the container. The straws will self level so don’t worry about filling each individual straw.
  8. Chill for at least 8 hours.
  9. Run each straw under hot water for a few seconds.
  10. Pinch the straw from the top down to squeeze out each worm.
  11. If you are making these in advance, squeeze the worms onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet and store, covered, in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.
  12. These can be made up to 2 days in advance.
