Chew on Your Pencil

Chew on Your Pencil

These noteworthy snacks are sure to earn high marks as a treat after school or at the next classroom gathering.


  • Cheese sticks
  • 1/2-inch-thick slices of bologna
  • Mustard
  • Bugles corn snacks
  • Raisins


For each pencil, cut off one end of a cheese stick so that it's flat. Use a paring knife or apple corer to cut a 3/4-inch circle out of the bologna.

Dab one end of the circle into the mustard, then attach it to the flat end of the cheese stick.

Snap off the end of a Bugle so that its edges are even, and gently press it onto the other end of the cheese stick. Slide half a raisin onto the Bugle for the pencil tip, and you've got a snack that's just write!
