String Cheese Pencils

Gearing up for back to school? I know some states have already started, but we’re still counting down the days here in the DC area. Looking for a fun, protein-filled afterschool snack? Try these cute String Cheese Pencils:

String Cheese Pencils

Mozarella or Colby String Cheese sticks
1/2 inch-thick slices of bologna
Bugles Corn Snacks

For each pencil, cut one end of a cheese stick to make it flat. Cut a small circle out of the bologna and attach it to the end of the “pencil” with mustard. Press the end of a Bugle into the other end of the cheese stick, then attach the raisin (either with mustard or by pressing it into the Bugle).


These are fun to make and fun to eat. Enjoy! For more ideas of afterschool snacks, see 25 Healthy Afterschool Snacks and follow my Back to School & Lunch Packing board on Pinterest.
