MAKING DINNER WITH ANTSY KIDS UNDER FOOT is hard enough. But making Thanksgiving dinner with kids playing chase through the kitchen? That’s the kind of stress me and my pre-ordered, free-range, organic turkey just don’t need. What we need is
wine a simple kid’s activity.
If you’re looking for a keep ’em busy project that also doubles as a snack kids love (a snack without tons of sugar), it’s got to be these owls.
I found a version of these owl crackers online and made our own. Originally they used cream cheese but we’re peanut butter people around here so after the first couple, we switched.
And I had help. My five-year-old had a ball making a batch of them for the little guys while they were napping. The toddlers LOVED them, everyone ate them and the whole crew can’t wait to make more. So you can bet we’ll be doing this again on Thanksgiving day. Here’s how you can too.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- large round crackers (I like whole-wheat)
- small round crackers
- sliced almonds
- whole almonds
- peanut butter or cream cheese
HOW YOU DO IT:
2. Add sliced almond ears.
3. Add small round cracker eyes.
4. Place whole almond in center for nose.
5. Use peanut butter or cream cheese as “glue” and affix raisin pupils.
6. Repeat the sliced almond process for wings until you get these guys.
Better yet, let your little soldiers do it for you.
And you’ll get something like this.
