Bumblebee Snacks

Let the children cut up bananas with a plastic knife, dip into honey, and then into corn flakes. The kids love it!

When learning about bees in our insect unit, we make edible play-dough of 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup peanut butter and enough powdered milk to make it the right consistency. The children have fun creating bees, flowers , or whatever and then eating their creations.

Bee Snack In a mixing bowl, mix 1/2cup peanut butter and 1 tbls. honey. Stir in 1/3 cup dry milk and 2 tbls. wheat germ and mix well. Lay wax paper on a baking sheet. Using 1 tbls. at a time, shape peanut butter into ovals to look like bees. Dip a toothpick in cocoa powder and press lightly across the top of the bees to make stripes. Stick on almonds for wings. Chill for 30 min. before serving. You may need to double this recipe to have enough “bees” for your children. I prepared the bee bodies and let the children do the cocoa and the wings. They had a great time and were surprised at how good they tasted.
