Shells and Sand

Boil shell macaroni until tender, drain, have children add butter or margerine and then add parmesan cheese. Shells and sand. The children love it and it’s nutritious too.

Aquarium Snacks

This is tons of fun, easy, and yummy, too!!! Prepair blueberry jello as stated on the package. Pour the blueberry jello into clear, see-thru plastic cups (the kind that they serve mixed drinks in at parties). In each cup of jello, put in several gummy fishies. Put all the cups in the refrigerator and cool until set. This has always been a favorite with my kiddo’s!

Seaweed…… Yum?

This should not be used as your primary snack LOL!!!! Go to an Oriental market and buy several types of products made from seaweed. You can even buy seaweed dried! Let the children taste the different seaweed products. Talk about how it tastes, where it comes from, etc.
