Let Them Eat Sand!

Most of you who know me know that I love kids and have spent most of my adult life working with them in some form or another. This week has been VBS and I had the Pre-K class--I am worn out! I have forgotten how active that age is! One of their favorite activities this week was when we made sand--that you can eat--so I thought that I would share this recipe for all of you out there with kids.

Now let me start off by saying, there is no nutritional value to this recipe at all, it is just a fun, summer treat for kids. And another thing, I know that some of us neat freaks cringe at the thought of letting kids cut loose with a bowl of ingredients to mix up, but do it anyway--its nothing that a broom and a soapy cloth can't clean up! I am also not responsible if your kids try to eat real sand after making this--just saying...

Pretend Sand

Softened margarine (not melted and not too soft)
Brown Sugar
Ground Cinnamon

Graham Crackers

Give each child a small plastic bowl and spoon.

Measure 1 tablespoon of margarine into each bowl.

Add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar to the margarine in each bowl.

Add 1/4 teaspoon off cinnamon to each bowl as well.

Let each child use their spoon to stir it all up.

Serve with graham crackers.

And let your kids eat sand!
