Although I love most vegetables, I admit that eating them is not always the most fun thing in the world.

Sure, chopped vegetables make for an extremely healthy snack. Eating your leafy greens helps you account for those daily doses of potassium, dietary fiber, and vitamins A and C.

Sometimes, though, munching on veggies can be a bit boring — especially when tempting desserts are sitting around.

For this reason, it’s important to get creative when preparing your plate. Fashioning your veggies into crafty designs is bound to make eating them much more exciting. Not only will children adore the ingenuity, but adults will also get a kick out of the exciting shapes these vegetables take on.

If you are looking for an interesting new way to prep your veggies, look no further! Try out this adorable recipe for making veggie kebab rockets. Not only are these decorative skewers super cute, but they taste out of this world!

Check out the list of ingredients and instructions below to learn how to make this yummy snack today. Serve them on their own with a side of sauce as a tasty appetizer, or toss them on the grill and eat them with a larger entree. These are perfect for summer celebrations and any kid-oriented event.

Ingredients
  • celery

Instructions
  • Chop three-pronged pieces out of a red pepper. This will resemble the base of the rocket, spitting out flames.
