Punky's ready for snack, which means I have to take a break from spelling tests, explaining projects and discussing afternoon plans to get her a snack. She dug through the pantry and pulled out this s'more snack mix that I made for Brownies earlier in the week. The recipe suggested melting the chocolate and drizzling it over the other ingredients, but I opted to save a few minutes of time and just toss them all together like a trail mix. Our mix contained Teddy Grahams, miniature marshmallows (which remind me of the marshmallows in Lucky Charms) and milk chocolate chips. Perfect snack for Punky, perfect for a toddler activity with Mom. Who doesn't like to play with their food?
We made our bears stand in line. We separated them by chocolate chips. We made an A-B pattern. We continued to make multiple patterns. Punky figured them out each time. And then we ate our patterns. In order, of course! Next week I will give her candy corn & candy pumpkins and encourage her to make her own patterns.
