Kid-Friendly Snacks for Summer Camp at Home

Jul 27th 2021

Summer is here! Now, how can we make the kids busy and have fun the next few days? Of course, a little summer camp at home is a perfect choice. But, when it comes to planning a perfect “summer camp” for the kids in the backyard this year, let’s add some delicious snacks that are easy to prepare and will keep them full during long days of activity.

Egg Salad Bento Lunch

This egg salad bento box is one of many snacks for summer camp at home. To make this snack, just put the egg salad into a lettuce “bowl” to make it pretty and enjoy it with cocktail bread and colorful vegetables. On the other side of the lunch box, put some sliced banana and blueberries at the top of plain yogurt. Finally, please give it a finishing touch with some chocolate chips and pistachios for an extra kick!

Tijuana Torta

A Mexican-style torta is just like any other burrito, except the “wrapper” is made from a hollowed-out roll instead of a piece of tortilla. It was filled with quick guacamole and some mashed spiced black beans. We can also make this vegetarian version of snacks for summer to a whole new level (and add calcium) by adding a melted Monterey Jack cheese onto the bean side of the sandwich.

Turkey, Corn & Sun-dried Tomato Wrap

Dried tomatoes, corn kernels, and fresh lettuce fill these hearty turkey wraps for perfect snacks for summer. To add more flavor, add some crumbled feta or shredded cheddar cheese onto the wrap. Then, serve it with sliced bell pepper, carrot sticks,  and the kid’s favorite creamy dressing.

Tuna-stuffed Cucumber Boats

Some kids may need to eat gluten-free snacks but still want their tuna salad sandwich. If they need to skip the bread because of the gluten, try serving the tuna salad in a crunchy boat-shaped cucumber instead of sandwich bread. Add a few carrots as “rudder” and chips as “sails” and. Then, these snack boats are ready to launch! For simpler transport, put the tuna salad in a container and other gluten-free crackers and cucumber slices for dipping.

Butter Cookies

Delicious bite-sized butter cookies are sure to be a favorite treat for kids and adults alike. Their timeless delicious and buttery flavor is perfectly paired with a glass of milk for the summer camp at home. For example, choose butter cookies made from high-quality butter and baked to perfection, like Danisa Butter Cookies. With its small and easy-to-bite size, everyone will absolutely love these delicious snacks for summer.

Made with an authentic Danish recipe passed down through generations of Denmark’s master bakers, Danisa Butter Cookies is a perfect companion for every moment with loved ones. The richness of the butter and the perfectly balanced sweetness are just right to please people worldwide and are loved by many!
