I have two little ballerinas in the house. Grace has taken ballet and tap classes for a couple years, and dance has been one of her favorite things to do outside of school. The recitals, where she gets to wear her costume, complete with poufy tutu, ballerina bun, and makeup – then ending with her getting a bunch of flowers and applause, are the highlight for her. When recital time came around this last spring, we decided to make a little snack to celebrate it.
1 slice colby jack cheese
1 slice deli ham
1-2 cubes of watermelon
yellow bell pepper
1 dried blueberry
Slice a piece of colby jack cheese into the shape of a ballerina’s head, arms, and torso. We put the arms in the air as the ballerina twirled on her toes. Next, lay a thin slice of watermelon cut to the shape of a top onto the ballerina’s chest area. Add the two legs made from two thin slices of cheese, then lay the deli ham over top to look like a cute tutu. Add two little toe shoes using bits of watermelon, a hair bun and top of yellow bell pepper, and a watermelon bow. Slice a dried blueberry in half for her eyes, and add a thinly sliced red grape for her mouth. So sweet!
