I teach at Central Carolina and this is a snack one group of my students did for a Thematic Unit project. It was very creative and of course very tasty. This would be great for a special snack or a Fun Friday treat at school. Not only are they fun to make but even more fun to eat! Children who help create their meals or snacks are more likely to actually eat them…sorry teacher-mode for a minute. Seriously these are very easy and cute!
1 box Graham Crackers (1 cookie per child; body of the bus)
1-2 cartons of cream cheese or Vanilla icing
1 bottle yellow food coloring
1 box of Frosted Mini Wheats (windows)
1 carton Oreos (wheels)
Give every child a Graham cracker. After mixing the food coloring with the cream cheese or icing (kids like to do this part themselves) spread on the “bus”. Next place the windows on the bus (3-4).
Then add 2 wheels (my favorite!) You can open 1 Oreo to make 2 wheels but then you only get to eat 1 Oreo. You could use red food coloring for a fire truck, or chocolate frosting with 2 Graham Crackers for a limo, be creative!!!
Have a great and Tasty Day!!
Easter is here. Jesus is alive! This is one of the basic cornerstones of our faith. We as Christians believe in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. We should be reminded of this daily through our scripture reading, devotions, Bible studies, etc. We should be giving thanks and praising the Lord everyday for our new life in Him.
Here’s an idea to try during this Easter season. Make a centerpiece for your kitchen table and add Easter eggs filled with objects from the Resurrection Story. Then each time you give thanks for your food, let a family member open up an egg and share its contents and its context in the Easter story. Keep a Bible nearby for accuracy. The sharing of Jesus’ death and resurrection doesn’t have to be just for story time anymore. You can easily adjust the amount of details you share according to the ages of your children. Also you could number the eggs to tell the chronological order of the story or retell the story in the right order.
Here are some ideas for objects for your eggs…nail, silver coins, hair from donkey’s tail (I used my daughter’s and tied with a ribbon…she has brown hair…no other reason), leather strip, thorn, white cloth, cross, broken rock, empty egg or a red heart for love. I gathered up my own stuff; but you can purchase the story and eggs already filled (Google Benjamin’s Box or Resurrection Eggs to download the story and DIY eggs).
This is just a fun and visual way to share Jesus with your family and friends.
“The angel said to the women,”Do not be afraid, for I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified, He is not here; He has risen just as He said.” Matthew 28:5&6

We loved, loved, loved this when growing up, but Mom only made it for special occasions, like Thursdays…just kidding. This tasty treat was mostly enjoyed on holidays, so that made it all the more special.
That started me thinking about a recent Lord’s Supper we shared while visiting our daughter this weekend. No, they didn’t have Tiger Butter, but Pastor Dave wanted us all to be excited about this opportunity to identify with other believers. He also wanted us to look forward to future “celebrations” together. The pastor reminded us that it is a privilege for us to come together as brothers and sisters in Christ. Communion is a time of remembering our life before and after Christ and also a time of reflection on how we are living the lives the Good Lord has blessed us with. So, before you have the opportunity to share in Communion again, read over 1Corinthians 11:17-34 and be ready!
