    Default Finger food for daycare Xmas party

    DD's going to her first daycare Christmas party next week and we're asked to bring a kid-friendly plate of food to share...only I have drawn a total blank on what to bring!

    What kinds of things do they normally serve at these sort of events? Only things we can't bring are nuts (allergies), popcorn or crunchy corn chips (choking) and fruit (centre is providing that).

    What about some drop scones (like pancakes but a bit thicker and smaller in size) made with wholemeal flour?

    I have the kids 4 ingredients book in front of me.. a few suggestions:

    ants on logs (celery sticks with cream cheese and sultanas)
    jatz sandwiches (jatz, cheese, kabana and cucumber... I would prob hold off on the cucumber in this instance though)
    tapas for kids (ham, cheese, rockmelon, grapes.. although it could be anything you choose0
    zesty shortbread stars (plain flour, icing sugar, orange zest, butter)
    apple and sultana wrap (cinnamon or vanilla yoghurt, wholegrain tortilla, stewed apples, sultanas)

    They're just a few of the first ones I found. Yell out if you're interested in the whole recipe

    Melt marshmallows and stir through rice bubbles, stir in some sprinkles and you have homemade LCMs. fairy bread is always a winner as someone else suggested. Honey joys, pikelets, cookies, lamington fingers, jatz/crackers and dip platter, scones, arrowroot biscuits half dipped in icing or chocolate, banana bread.
