  • ~*Muffins*~... I love doing muffins with my middle son! I add ground flaxseed and ground walnuts for added vitamins! And he thinks he is being spoiled... plus I can stick 'em in ziplocks and freeze them

  • first off is there any allergies--if not then let your child help decide also; go with cheese sticks; pretzels, cupcakes, rice krispie treats, peanut butter balls, popcorn balls, trail mix, cookies--sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter cookies, pudding cups, jell-o, muffins, fresh fruit, pretzels dipped in chocolate

  • I did mini pizzas with my sons class (3 and 4 yr olds). I rolled out the dough in advance and let them help put the cheese and sauce on. However, if you have time, let them help with rolling out the dough (i skipped it since I couldn't convince my own son there was a difference between pizza dough and playdough!). You can even let them add toppings (pepperoni, mushrooms, etc) if you're do motivated. (Obviously this assumes you have access to an oven. My son's classroom use to be a Home Economics room so it have a couple of full kitchen set ups.) Otherwise, what about making pudding? Instant would just require cold milk and it sets very quickly. You got a lot of suggestions that included nuts so be careful to check rules.
