Last week, we made a few special snacks to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
We made cornucopias with Bugles and Trix cereal. I was so disappointed to find the the Trix cereal no longer comes in fruit shapes. We went with it anyway and made some tasty snacks.
I saw these cute turkey cupcakes online and thought they would be fun to make. I posted a sign up sheet for ingredients (decorations), but on the day we were to make them, most of the decorations had not come in yet. I scrambled to see what I had that we could use to make them work.
We started with pre-made cupcakes with chocolate frosting, since we don't have access to an oven to bake them ourselves. We added a Whopper malted milk ball for the head, upside down candy corns for feathers, a candy corn tip for the beak, mini chocolate chips for eyes and a red M&M for a wattle.
I have been teaching early childhood for about 20 years. I love what I do---it's the best job in the world!!! Where else can you go to work each day and do art, play games, have snack and get hugs regularly AND get paid for it?! I love to share ideas with other teachers and see what they are doing in their classrooms. Teaching is the best profession---we love to share!
