Transportation Dinner Menu
A great appetizer to start your Transportation kids dinner party,
make sailboat eggs out of deviled
eggs and a red pepper sail.
Cucumber cut in circles
Prepare hoagie sandwiches with desired meat and cheese fillings.
Place two cucumber circles on the end of a pretzel stick. Make
another for the back wheels of the car. Place hoagie “car” on top of
its wheels and watch it get eaten up.
Cut a large cucumber in half and scoop out insides. Fill with tuna
salad, chicken salad, whatever you'd like. We filled ours with a
Greek salad and added flags for fun. Perhaps we should have added a
flag but didn't have one!
Here are some great games for this theme party.
Use apple slices and grapes cut in half to create cars. You'll
need to use toothpicks inserted into the apple slice to keep your
wheels in place. Add little drivers, if desired.
Transportation Party Dessert
Graham cracker or other rectangle crackers
White frosting or cream cheese if using a salty cracker
M&M's or other candies red, yellow and green colors
Break a graham cracker into rectangles. Spread frosting over each
graham cracker rectangle. Place a red, yellow and green candy on top
of the frosting to resemble a stop light.
Candy Race Cars
Mini size candy bars
M&M's or other round candies
Cut a small hole out of the top of the candy bar for the driver. Add
a dot of frosting and add a teddy graham. Add a dot of frosting in
spots for the candy wheels and steering wheel. Add M&M's
on top of the frosting.
