Easy French Food Snacks for Kids

Our Five In A Row Homeschooling adventure began in August this year and has already taken us to the country of France three times!  The stories of “Madeline”, by Ludwig Bemelmans…


“How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World”, by Marjorie Priceman…


and “The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot”, by Alice and Martin Provensen…


all reference the country of France.  Jane Lambert, the author of Five In A Row suggests making food that corresponds to the stories you read.  She even has a FIAR cookbook.  I think its fun to try and incorporate new foods with the stories we are studying when possible. So, after lots of brainstorming and a trip down the frozen food isle at Trader Joe’s we ended up with the following fun French foods for my kiddos to taste test: 2 flavors of quiche, croissants, “Wee Brie”, Concord grape juice, white grape juice, and a grape trio medley.  I bought everything at Trader Joe’s except for the “Laughing Cow Wee Brie” which I got at Winco.  I have to admit that the idea of different varieties of grape juice and brie is a kindergarten version of a wine and cheese party.  I know, I know, it’s terrible of me but I gotta be honest here!  Of course my critics, the kids, didn’t like anything except for the grapes and grape juice! That was fine with me since I got the leftovers and I really enjoy the quiche, croissants and brie!  C’est la vie (that’s life; such is life)!
