M was more excited about taste testing than cutting out mittens.
Can you tell I went a little crazy with the cookie cutter this week? For this snack I made a few pieces of toast and had Mmadelynn spread the peanut butter.
It’s a miracle any made it on the bread because I’m convinced she would scoop it out of the jar by the handful if I let her!
Yup you guessed it, we pulled out that mitten cookie cutter again and cut bread into mitten shapes. Then I colored a small amount of water with some food coloring and let Madelynn paint the bread.
I planned to pop them in the toaster oven so they weren’t soggy, but M decided she didn’t mind and started munching on her mittens about halfway through, so there are no after pictures of this one!
Animals in a Mitten:
We actually did this one on Monday and Tuesday since we were on the road. Luckily Madelynn loved “The Mitten” by Jan Brett so this simple snack was a huge hit. She had fun putting the animals in and taking them out of the mitten and there was literally no prep involved for me. WIN!
