DD's 6th birthday party.

I always throw a huge BBQ with an enormous amount of food. I've decided to NOT go crazy this year so I can sit back and have fun with the kids and visit with family that is coming from another state.

I want to do all appetizers. Veggie and fruit platter with dips, etc. Do you have some ideas for kid friendly, relatively healthy appetizers that I can make. Im expecting around 20 kids ranging from 2yrs to 8 plus adults.

Thanks!

  • One of the moms in my daughter's preschool brought cheese and crackers for a birthday party. It was that awful spray cheese from a can, but she made smily faces on the crackers, and the kids couldn't get enough of them. They did fruit kabobs this week--pineapple and apple chunks, strawberry and orange slices, melon balls, blueberries and grapes. That was a hit, too.
