Here's a fun activity for your next swimming or mermaid party. These simple fruit and cream cheese biscuits can be decorated by each child to add some healthy, crafty treats to their party feast. Just arrange the fresh strawberry "scales" into all kinds of patterns, then eat with delight.
Strawberry Fish Biscuits
Time: 5 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Several Milk Arrowroot biscuits
50 grams cream cheese
10 fresh strawberries
Currants, blueberries or sultanas
Ingredients for Strawberry Biscuits
Take the Milk Arrowroot biscuits (or any other biscuits - these just have the perfect fishy shape) and carefully spread the cream cheese across one side of each biscuit.
Thinly slice the fresh strawberries and arrange the slices on top of the cream cheese in a "scale pattern" and add a "tail" at the back. This is the fun part of the activity and is a bit like putting together a puzzle.
Spread on some cream cheese
Place the currant, blueberry or sultana on top of the strawberries, to create a fishy "eye" and it's ready to eat. Can you make a whole school of fish? Enjoy.
