Chunk-Style Apple Sauce

8-10 Apples (Supplied by children: different kinds blend for
tasty sauce!)
Peeled, cored, and sliced into chunks
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 1 cup sugar

Put all ingredients into Crock-Pot. Cover and cook on Low
8-10 hours (high 3-4 hours). Serve warm with or without whipped

Arachnid (Spider) Cookies

1/2 cup semisweet-chocolate pieces

1/2 cup peanut-butter flavored pieces

16 large marshmallows

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups oat ring cereal

2 cups chow mein noodles

Small red cinnamon candies

Chow mein noodles

In large saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and peanut butter flavored pieces, marshmallows and butter, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Add cereal and noodles; mix gently but thoroughly. Working quickly, drop mixture by
tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper, shaping to resemble spiders. While spiders are still soft, press two candies on top for eyes and additional noodles around edges for legs.

Homemade Butter

Baby food (or similar) jar for each child.
I recommend clear glass containers so the children can view progress
without opening the jar!! It can get messy!!!

Heavy Cream (about 1/3 cup per child)

A dash of salt for each child


1. Put cream in jar (no more than 1/2 full)
2. Add a dash of salt
3. Shake (takes about 1/2 hour of constant shaking...some kids like to
work in teams to get rests)
4. When contents reach the consistancy of margarine spread oncrackers.

Uncooked Chocolate Cookies

1/4 cup dry milk 3 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup water 1/4 cup cocoa

1/3 cup shortening 1/2 cup peanut butter

2 cups sugar 1 tsp vanilla

* Put sugar, milk, and water in pan and bring to boil while

* When boiling good, remove from heat. Add vanilla, cocoa, shortening, and peanut butter. Stir until all is mixed

* Add rolled oats and stir until mixed.

* Drop by a tablespoon on waxed paper to cool.

Milk with green food coloring is swamp water.
Rolled oats become dry grass.
Cocoa is dirt.
Shortening is fat.
Peanut butter becomes squashed bugs, (I have to add a little pb to
make the bugs stick together, or so I tell the kids.)
Sugar becomes crushed bones.
Vanilla is flower juice, (I know it sounds hokey but my kinders buy it.)

Dough Nuts
(Play Clay)
from Woman's Day Vol. 7-18-95
"Mary Ellen to the Rescue"

Mix l cup flour and 1/2 cup salt. Add 1/4 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon
vinegar, tint with food coloring and knead to blend. Store clay in tightly sealed containers in the refrigerator and let the clay warm slightly before using (just let it sit at room temperature).
As long as the clay is returned to the refrigerator within a
couple of hours, you can use it over and over again. Or let
finished sculptures air-dry to harden!

Jello brand instant pudding

Dream Whip

Cool Whip



Oreo Cookies

Gummy Worms

1. Follow the directions on the jello box for a dream pie.

2. Add cool whip until you get the consistancy you want.

3. Crush cookies and mix in 1/2 the package with chocolate.

4. Stir in gummy worms.

5. Put in child's play pail and sprinkle remaining cookies on
top. Remember to let a few worms hang out!

Read aloud: How to Eat Fried Worms prior to activity!

Last year in my grade 2 class, we made a recipe book of favourite recipes. The kids brought the recipes in, a parent typed them, and I ran off the ingredients list.
The kids printed the method as their printing time, while we made the recipes. The students looked forward to Day 2 baking, and at the end of the year, they had a remembrance to take home. (Some gave them to Dad for Father's Day) The kids learned a lot---the day that I forgot the egg for the planned recipe got us into
problem solving....and they came up with a recipe that we DID have the ingredients for.

We made "Dinosaur Eggs" last year when we did the dinosaur unit. Just
take warm Rice Krispie Square ingredients and form into egg-shaped mounds. the spring, make a "nest" of birds eggs from the Rice Krispies.

I have made the zip lock baggie ice cream and the kids love it

1/2 cup milk, can be white or choc.
1/3 teas of vanilla
1 tablespoon of sugar

Put in a sand. baggie and I put tape over the top also.

Put all of this in a gal size freezer baggie and fill half way with ice. some have said you can use table salt and others rock salt. I put 7 tablespoons of rock salt. Turn until frozen. I rinse off the sand.
baggies making sure none of the salt stays on the bag.

Using bisquit dough ( from the refrigerator section) I give each child one and have them make the four shapes we are learning about. They bring them to me and I fry them and coat them with cinnamin sugar and we eat our shapes.
