Yummy Tummy Clocks

Kids Recipe Challenge winning recipe: 3rd Place! [Snacks]
School day snacks: Grades 4 to 6

Here is a great way to teach time and enjoy a tasty snack! Let kids put together the clock and choose what time they are going to eat it up. Look for a variety of delicious hummus flavours available to change up the taste. Hannah, from Cambridge, thinks kids will like this recipe because kids can add the toppings in different ways.
