I volunteered at Cara’s school on Friday for Fantastic Friday–or whatever it’s called–where we [the parents] manned “stations” and the kids rotated through reading, science experiments and crafts.
One of the crafts was a sheep made out of Cheerios and melted marshmallows. Basically a strange approximation of a sheep rice krispie treat. Unfortunately, Cara missed that station since she and I had to leave early so Tucker could get to his last weekend of eMBA classes.
We’re a rather crafty family–in more ways than one–and I knew we could create superior sheep.
The first attempt at the treats happened last night; I let Tucker ride herd over the kids and the three of them ended up making a pretty tasty concoction. It wasn’t strong enough to be molded into sheep. The next batch should turn out better.
But it wasn’t all a lost cause.
The stuff would stick together just long enough to shape it and then melt into a mass of sweet, crunchy goodness.
