Strawberry Shortcake added
Make quick strawberry shortcakes by
purchasing small hollowed sponge cakes and strawberry pie filling. Have
the children fill one of their own sponge cakes with strawberries and add
whipped cream or Cool Whip to the top. Either snack then or send them home
on a plate or in a bowl to share with their family.
Have the children smush up 1 quart
strawberry in a baggie. Add 1 tsp sugar and put over shortcake. (You can
use the individual shortcakes you buy at the store). Top with Cool Whip.
Give each child a couple of
strawberries, leaves removed, in a ziploc bag. Let them mash them up with
their hands - they won't get messy because it will be contained in the
bag. Then spoon over ice cream or blend into their milk for a yummy treat.
