Get some cheap plastic wine glasses for the kids. Add a box of graham crackers, a plastic zip-top bag, also a quart of vanilla Greek yogurt and a bunch of berries.
The kids slam the graham graham crackers inside the sealed air-tight bag. I like irregular pieces, whatever they want. The girls tend to roll, the boys use the rolling pin like a baseball bat. Our neighbors’ grandkids loved coming over to do this as a surprise for their parents and grandparents last summer. Yes, grands C and A do tend to hover at our door and whisper Zoe’s name so our old dog will come out to play or go for a walk. I figured they could make a gift for their parents and grandparents. Dessert.
Cracker crumbs, yogurt, berries. Layer. The plastic cup lets a kid know his or her composition and watch as it gets to the top. I am hoping that one of the teens will teach her young cousins how to do this and make it fun for them. If each little one does two, it’ll make a great dessert.
We love kids and Thanksgiving. The young cousin I’m targeting to teach the little ones will know what to do. I’m sure of it. Happy Thanksgiving! Dee
I taught the older kids. One just married recently. Now the younger ones can teach the little ones. I’ve been with my husband’s family for 14 years. I taught, now they teach. I think that’s time well spent.
