A few weeks ago, I shared how blessed our church is to be using the Camp Kilamanjaro VBS theme this year for our VBS week. Not long after that post, Family Christian Stores challenged me to make a quick and easy snack to go along with the theme, and I thank them for sponsoring today’s snack. So I decided to share my super secret when creating themed snacks for a party, VBS, or a group.
It’s actually all in the name.
It’s not necessarily in the ingredients. You don’t have to be a master chef. You just have to get creative with the name.
Take today’s snack, for example. This is a spin on the traditional Puppy Chow recipe. But we’re changing the color and calling it Monkey Munch to coordinate it with the African-themed Camp Kilimanjaro VBS curriculum. Too easy, right?
