A Fun Halloween or Thanksgiving Treat for Kids
This dessert is so easy it barely deserves a blog post. All you need are:
- Graham crackers
- The icing or frosting of your choice
- A piping bag
- small, circular icing tip
- 2 types of fall-themed gummy candies
Put the icing in the frosting bag, and draw four lines on the graham cracker to make a tic tac toe board. Give each kid 5 of each of the two types of candies. Let them play (and eat!) to their hearts content.
Fast, Easy, and Cheap Treats for Classrooms
No sweating over a hot stove until 2 am. No wondering what on earth you can make for your classroom of pre-school kids that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg and take over your life. No worrying about peanut allergies.
Put everything in a small plastic bag and give to each kid in your class. They’ll be thrilled, and you’ll be relaxed.
However, I still can’t keep the kids in your life from licking off all the icing and leaving the cracker. Some things never change.
