Mulberry Street Unit Study- Oh the Animals Snack

What’s a Unit Study without some really fun snacks? Let’s play with our food in our Mulberry Street Unit Study and be silly today. Set out graham crackers, pretzels, marshmallows, gum drops, cereal, cookies, and other small food items in a divided tray.

Mulberry Street Oh the Animals Snack

Use peanut butter or another nut butter for “glue”. If you have a nut allergy in the house, you can always use icing (I have an amazing cream cheese frosting recipe in my Snowball Cupcakes post).  This divided tray I picked up at Dollar Tree, I bought them in several different shapes and sizes for various sorting and other activities- great for many home school projects.

Now that you’re all set up, you and the kidlets can build animals or vehicles that you may have seen on Mulberry Street. The best part is that you then get to eat them! Don’t forget to snap a picture of you and your little ones creations before they are gobbled up.
