We’ve done the math, so we know you can count on this cute calculator to add fun to the first day of school. To make one, use a serrated knife to trim a graham cracker sheet into a shorter rectangle (ours are about 3½ inches long). Cut a rectangle from a plain chocolate bar and attach it with chocolate frosting. Trim away the tips from three butterscotch, chocolate, or white chocolate chips. Use more frosting to attach them, along with nine M&M’s Minis candies, as shown.
You can also make your kids school lunch more fun too. Try this kids lunch box recipe for Halloween. Or, another great snack idea is our kids Kool-Aid JELL-O popsicles. Make snacking and lunch time fun for your kids. Many kids enjoy helping cook or create new recipes. It is a great way to include them and teach them along the way! Our son loves getting involved in the kitchen whether it’s making a snack or cooking supper.
