Cereal Man

What You Need:

  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 10 ounce bag of marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Gingerbread man cookie cutters
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Plate
  • Pot
  • Spoon

What You Do:

  1. Help your child use the non-stick cooking spray to coat the plate and the insides of the cookie cutters.
  2. Have her put the butter in the pot.
  3. Put the pot on the stove and turn the burner on low. 
  4. Let your child carefully stir the butter as it melts.
  5. Next have her add the marshmallows to the pot.
  6. As she continues to stir, show her how to use the spoon to scrape the sides.
  7. Once the marshmallows have melted, remove the pot from the stove.
  8. Help her spoon the thick, goopy mixture into the cookie cutters.
  9. Have your child use her fingers to press the mixture into the cookie cutters. She needs to make sure every bit of the cookie cutter is filled.  
  10. Set aside the cookie shapes to cool. You can even place them in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
  11. Wrap these extra special treats in colored plastic wrap to share with teachers and other special people in your child’s life.
