Place each type of ingredient in a separate small bowl and line up bowls on a table or countertop that's within reach for all the kids.
Using age-appropriate skewers (kebab skewers, disposable wooden skewers, coffee stir-sticks or straws), have each kid personalize their own totem pole by adding ingredients of their choice onto the skewer. Make colorful patterns; see who can fit the most ingredients onto their totem pole; count pieces as each is added. Dip totem poles in Italian dressing and eat!
Use all or some of the above ingredients when making this recipe.
