True story. In university I pretty much existed on Rice Krispies. Rice Krispies treats and cookies were my staple foods and – coffee of course. Canada Dry Gingerale too. I ate them for breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner too. I was poor and I was busy working three jobs and juggling school and studying. Anyways Rice Krispies treats are easy and fun and tasty too. Yesterday when this Halloween kit from Kelloggs arrived, well I knew my kids and I would have fun after school building early Halloween memories and some super fun snacks too.
I am almost embarrassed to tell you that despite the fact that I have made these treats 1000 times since university, I had never built anything fun with them. So when we got a kit filled with a box of Rice Krispies, a bag of marshmallows, Halloween cookie cutters, some random candy bits, bubblegum and icing tubes, we went nuts. Let me just say that my kids were so excited they totally forgot about TV and all other distractions. Ainsley prepared a video tutorial for you to watch in case you need some ideas. This is, by the way, an excellent sensory activity. My girls shaped the balls of Rice Krispies with their hands and decorated them however they wanted to. If you have a sensory seeker who needs hands on activity and likes getting messy this is a perfect activity.
This last one was going to be a ghost, but I felt like in the end it looked more like an hibou. So owl it is. My tip: just pour all the warm Rice Krispies and marshmallow mixture into a cake pan and let cool for maybe five minutes. You don’t want anyone to get burnt. Then start balling the mix into little shapes. Have fun and take pictures.
