|Can you find the eggs?|
The next day (which was a half day) we did our weekly cooking project.(I love all of the life skills and fine motor cooking involves!) I really wanted to use up some of the stuff we had left over from previous cooking projects so we made Trail Mix. I did pick up some of the ingredients at the store, but the rest was just a mish-mosh of cereals. We used the white dipping chocolate that was left over from making our supposed to be snow-man pops to make chocolate covered pretzels. To do this we melted the chocolate in the microwave (the kids each took a turn pressing the buttons) and then stirred in the pretzels Next we spread the pretzels on a cookie sheet and stuck them in the fridge to harden while we worked on the rest.
For the trail mix part I gave each student their own plastic bag and let them dump in the various ingredients (Of course they had to help me open the marshmallows and m&ms because I am way to weak to do that on my own, just have to watch out for the student who tried to open the bag with his teeth!) After we put all of the various ingredients in, we added the pretzels I made my bag extra big so that we had some ton share with our friends around the building. We shook the bags to mix everything up. It was a hit with the kids and adults!!
