Muddy Boots

Those April showers sure aren't playing around. It's amazing the amount of rain we are getting. I cancelled our pet show at school for tomorrow because the weather still looks iffy. I found this cute activity in one of my Mailbox magazines and I thought it very appropriate. It's a bit sweet, and it calls for graham crackers too, but I didn't have any in the house. You notice I had Vienna Fingers though:).

For the activity you will need:

chocolate pudding mix
graham crackers
Vienna Fingers

The first step is to make the chocolate pudding--lots of fun there. Measuring, mixing, pouring, stirring, all kinds of fun activities involved with just step one. Actually, this is probably the longest part.

After the pudding is made let your child put some pudding in a bowl. Take a square of graham cracker and break it in half so you have two rectangles. Then take a Vienna Finger and open it so you have two pieces. Break off one rounded edge. Now lay the Vienna Finger in the pudding, then push one piece of graham cracker in stand up position behind each cookie. Now you have a pair of boots.

Mailbox is always good with including an instruction sheet that you can send home with parents to let them know how to make this yummy snack.

Final step--Enjoy.
