Candy Train
Submitted on the Comment Box
We are doing a unit on trains in the beginning of December. We make a candy train out of candy bars cut in 1/2 with peppermint wheels. The engine is made with 1/2 a candy bar placed horizontally, then a 1/2 roll of lifesavers is glued on top horizontally with frosting. The other half of the candy bar is glued next to the open end of the lifesavers standing up vertically to make the engineers part. A hershey kiss is glued to the front end of the lifesaver roll and a candy orange slice is glued to the front of the candy bar for the grill. The cars to the train are made out of candy bars cut in half, and then a variety of candy is glued on top for cargo. This is all glued (again, with frosting) to a piece of cardboard covered with foil with licorice train tracks. They are so cute! We read The Little Engine that Could and then have a delicious snack

Turkey Cookies
Submitted on the Comment Boxl
I did this with my pre-schoolers and they loved it. You bring cookie dough to school (already made) and bring cookie cutters. Use turkies, leaves,etc. After they have baked let your chilren decorate their own cookies with food coloring icing, that way their turkies can have different color feathers, and they can take home the cookies. They love it! The cookies are great too!
