A Yummy Earth Day Treat

     We've been busy plugging away this week learning all about Earth Day and different ways that we can help our planet.  We're going to have a little celebration on Friday and we're going to make a snack that's cute, delicious and healthy.  You just need some rice cakes, some cream cheese and some food coloring. 
     The only prep you'll need to do is to mix some green food coloring into one bowl of cream cheese and some blue food coloring into another.  I discovered that it works best if you spread blue over the whole rice cake to make the water first, then add the green on top of that to make the land.  Tada!  You have a yummy, healthy Earth Day treat!
     I'm going to try having the kids make their snack at a station (yikes!) so I made a picture recipe card for them to follow.  If you'd like a copy of the recipe card to try it with your class, you can click below the pic.  I'd love to hear how your little chefs make out!
Happy Earth Day everyone!

  2. Yummy and creative. I did this once with a cookie (long before the teaching blog world existed) but I like this healthier treat better.
