i don't remember how i met and began talking with Lorie from Reading Confetti. i do remember, though, that her creativity immediately made a big impression on me. the techniques and activities she uses with her children is inspiring. see what i mean in these activities: Barnyard Tornado in a Jar, 5 Ways to I Spy, and We Built a Car.
Hello, Crayon Freckles readers! I'm Lorie from Reading Confetti. I am a reading specialist turned SAHM who blogs about activities and crafts inspired by children's literature. I'm excited to be here today sharing a simple way to make a fun treat for Halloween.
My kids love monster books (and pretending to be monsters.) Some of our favorites are Leonardo the Terrible Monster, Go Away, Big Green Monster, and The Monster at the End of This Book.
The other day we were making a batch of chocolate chocolate chip cookies similar to this recipe using chocolate cake mix and adding a cup of chocolate chips. I had lots of edible eyes and also some miniature marshmallows in the cupboard, so we made our cookies into monster cookies.
We added the edible eyes and marshmallow teeth while the cookies were still warm but not too hot to touch. The thing that makes this perfect for preschoolers is there's no wrong way to do it. How can a monster have too many eyes? or teeth?
Thanks so much to you for reading and to Andie for letting me visit. I hope you'll stop by Reading Confetti!
