  1. Any safety tips I could use when making with children. Like cutting the fruits or how to avoid choking hazards? I am using this recipe as part of an assignment and I’m required to do this with young children.

  2. 5 stars
    If I want my 4 yr old preschool class to make these, I assume it would feed 2, right? If so, can they be made in a bowl without a lid and put in the fridge? I use little bowls from Ikea. Just want to try this this year as a I have a child with dairy issues so I want to have something fun for her.
