Holiday Tree Veggies
- 4 cup green beans
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 medium bell pepper, red
- 1 medium bell pepper, orange
- 1 medium bell pepper, yellow
- 2 stick string cheese
- Place green beans and water in a microwave-safe dish, cover, and microwave on high for 5 minutes. (If frozen steaming may take longer.)
- Meanwhile, dice red and orange bell peppers into small squares about the same width as the beans. Slice the yellow pepper into four pieces and then use a small star-shaped cookie cutter to make the star for each tree.
- Cut cheese sticks in half.
- Have your kids use the beans to form a tree shape. Use the diced peppers as ornaments and the cheese as the trunk. Finally, place the star on top.
