The play date: a perfect time for friends to explore the world together, and a great way for you to stress yourself out over snacks. Never fear, matey! This recipe is a winner!

Pirates are awe-inspiring for any gender, and this recipe utilizes a few basic components that all kids love: bread, cheese, fruit leather, and sweet snow peas. Together, these ingredients provide a comprehensive, light yet filling snack that will catch their attention just enough to get them to sit still to eat before going about their adventures. And you can easily prep this well before the time of arrival of your little one’s shipmates, so you can just pull out the tray as needed. Oh, and it’s perfect for an after school snack as well. Have fun!
