A recipe that will LIGHT up your day!

Today’s recipe goes along with the book “When Lightning Comes In A Jar” by Patricia Polacco.  Now this book in particular was fascinating to our little boys.  The very idea of a family reunion had them wide-eyed but then add to that, dozens of jello molds and they were begging for their own family reunion complete with fireflies.


We saw this idea for fireflies snacks and we knew we had to try it out.

Here is all you need:

  • Crackers (split some in half for the wings)
  • Cream cheese
  • Sliced kiwi


Spread a bit of cream cheese on the cracker.


Place a kiwi slice on top and a dab a bit cream cheese on one of the top ends.


Using the cream cheese as “glue” stick the wings on top, slightly spread apart so you can see
the firefly’s green “light”.
