You've probably told your preschooler not to play with his food a million times over, but what if there was an activity where he didn't have to hold back? Construct little log building snacks! In this activity, make logs of peanut butter, honey, and cornflakes, and have your child create his own miniature house of logs. Not only will he get to learn a thing or two about sound structure, but he'll also have a yummy treat to look forward to afterwards. This is a great way to liven up afternoon snack time and can also work as a fun activity for your child's get-togethers.
