Handy Teacher Recipes|

For each student:
- 3 large marshmallows
- several very thin pretzels sticks
- Break a pretzel stick into smaller piece and use it to connect two marshmallows together.
- Connect the 3rd marshmallow in the same way.
- Use other pretzel sticks to create arms, legs, "hair", face.
- Begin by washing & sterilizing scissors.
- Then, warm flour tortillas in the oven or microwave just until they are soft and warm.
- Fold in half and thirds and cut into snowflakes just like you would paper.
- Put them on waxed paper on cookie sheets and spray with butter-flavor cooking spray and bake until crisp but not brown.
- Dust with powdered sugar.
(you can dust with cinnamon-sugar before baking)
- Cornstarch (not too much) try a few tablespoons at first to get an idea of how this works
- Some cold water
- Some boiling water
- Vegetable food coloring
- Put the cornstarch into a bowl and mix it with a little cold water until you have a smooth paste.
- Then, while stirring (it's very important to stir it constantly to avoid clumping), pour in the boiling water until you get the desired consistency. (The water MUST be boiling hot)
- Add some vegetable food coloring and you have a great finger paint.
Remember, don't give it to the children until it's cooled
If you have washable table tops, let the children paint right on the tables. If the paint starts to dry, spray with water from a spray bottle.
When the children are done and while the paint is still wet, press sheets of paper over the painted areas and lift. The paper will pick up an impression of the paint.
Wash the tables with warm soapy water and sponges.
When it is very cold and there is lots of snow on the ground, we have boiled maple syrup and made sticky toffee by pouring it on the snow and then eating it. The kids love doing this!!
Also - how about using the old Stone Soup book and making a nutritious pot of soup. We have done this using a couple of crocks in the classroom and each child brings in one vegetable to contribute to the soup. We have a stone soup lunch and the kids have a delicious, tummy warming lunch.
