17 AMAZING SNACK CHARCUTERIE BOARDS KIDS’ PARTIES
Snack charcuterie boards have become the ultimate way to present snacks and lite bites over the last couple of years. They have literally blown up on TikTok and are hugely popular with tweens and teens.
HOW TO MAKE A SNACK CHARCUTERIE BOARD THAT KIDS (TWEENS AND TEENS) WILL LOVE
The beauty of presenting snacks and bites to eat on a charcuterie board is that you get to create a visual feast as well as a feast that is delicious to eat.
This is what makes snack charcuterie boards so perfect if you are hosting a small kids’ party at home. The boards work particularly well for afternoon tea or sleepover parties for tweens and teens.
The trick to making the charcuterie board look TikTok-worthy is to create it in the same way you would create a piece of art!
5 STEPS TO CREATING A STUNNING CHARCUTERIE SNACK BOARD
1. THE BOARD AND PROPS
Use a large serving platter or a large cutting board as the base for your snack board.
You will also need a selection of small serving bowls and dishes to help keep different food items separate.
2. WHAT TO PUT ON THE BOARD
Take a look at my roundup list of charcuterie snack board ideas below.
If you are creating a general snack board, you will want to include a good mix of savoury and sweet items. The name of the game is to provide a good variety of different options.
3. SNACK BOARD COLOUR SCHEME
Plan a colour scheme for the snack board. Rainbow colours work well, as do black and white or pastels.
4. CREATE PATTERNS AND SHAPES
Once you have your board, extra dishes and food items, you can start arranging the board.
Start by placing the most important or largest items on the board first. Then work to fill in the gaps with smaller items.
Keep the board visually appealing by varying the colours you place next to each other, creating different shapes and patterns.
Laying food items out symmetrically works well, as does creating an abstract pattern across the board.
Add decorations for an extra creative flourish. Flowers, leaves, and party decorations all work well. Just make sure that nobody can mistake anything non-edible for food!
Now you know the secret to creating a delicious charcuterie snack board, take a look through this roundup of 17 delicious snack boards that kids of all ages, especially tweens and teens, will love.
