I wish I thought of this, but I didn't. I got the idea from Family Fun. It's what Lou decided to take to school for snack on his last leader day. I might add that it doesn't so much work to make them ahead. You know strawberries. They are tricky little guys. I made ours up at 8:00 and we ate at 10:00. Everything was damp and couldn't have gone much longer without getting mushy.
The tails were supposed to be licorice laces, bu I couldn't find them anywhere. I rolled out colored tootsie rolls.
We took Lou's teachers some cinnamon swirl bread.
Lou had a great day. He loves school. He loves being leader. His favorite parts are always when the teachers say to sit, "criss cross Lou-sauce" and when he gets to stand on the chair and hold the flag for the pledge.
I made sure to double the bread recipe so we had some for breakfast too. It was perfect with the new good batch of yogurt.
