Interesting GF snack ideas for 30 Montessori preschoolers?

I bring in a "special snack" once a month for my son's Montessori preschool. They suggest interesting foods that will expand the children's palettes... which is great, but I also want to bring something that I know will get eaten/won't go to waste. There are several gluten free kids so I typically bring something gf or a gf option for those children. Any ideas or inspiration would be most welcome, I'm uninspired at the moment. Thank you!

Fruit kabobs! Veggies and dips. Avocado slices wrapped with ham.

Love the kebab idea! I wonder if I could find some sticks that aren't pointy on the end... or if Popsicles sticks would work. Maybe the points wouldn't be an issue.

Meringues (possibly with chocolate chips). Naturally gf, so good for all. Another idea: edamame (salted).

The Ocean Spray Craisins are gluten free and come in individual 100 calorie bags. Daughter use to bring these as a snack for her class and the children loved them.

My son's class loved these finger foods: whole small apples, clementines, sliced melon, lightly salted cucumber spears, steamed green beans with lemon juice, cubes of cheese and focaccia

Does the treat have to be packaged or can it be homemade. My sons school requires them to be packaged. If that's your case, my sons class loves cheese sticks and fruit and veggie pouches.

We are allowed to bring in homemade snacks. I was surprised by this at first but we are a small school and apparently there are no serious allergies. It would honestly simplify things quite a bit if it had to be storebought, ha! Thanks for the cheese stick reminder, my son used to love them and I haven't bought them for him in ages.

Do they allow homemade snacks? Where we live they only allow store bought wrapped snacks. That's why I recommended the Craisins.

My daughter's Montessori school only allowed home made snacks too so I got pretty good at this - veggies and ranch or hummus, olives, pickles, home trail mix (cheerios are gluten free), nuts, ants on a log, yogurt, cottage cheese, deviled eggs. Blue diamond makes really good gluten free crackers in a variety of flavors.
