Friday Funtivities: Texture Recipes!

In the last post, I talked about our Friday Funtivity of making Homemade Granola Bars.  Here is a follow-up.

If your child does not have a problem getting messy, you and your child could enjoy making:

  •  individual meat loaves in funny shapes (you will still want these shapes to be somewhat uniform in thickness so they will cook the same time!)  I like this recipe from Zonya Faco’s Lickety-Split Recipes
  • haystack cookies (I would love for someone to give me a tried and true recipe for this!)
  • sugar cookies (Wilton’s has a great no-chill recipe! Thanks, Kira at Kitchen Clutter for this one!)
  • pizza (fruit pizza on a sugar cookie, regular pizza on a pre-made or homemade crust, or ice cream pizza)
  • edible play dough (I have not tried these, but here are 10 recipe ideas for you!)  (***I will add a “disclaimer” to this that the reason I have NOT done edible play dough is simply that I don’t want to encourage or give the idea to my 2-year-old that it is okay to eat real Play-Doh!!)
  • bread–if you don’t have a bread machine (or if you just want to do it the old fashioned way from time to time!), most kids (perhaps even my anti-mess boy!) would LOVE to punch the dough down!!  You can also let them shape rolls or bread sticks for a family meal.
  • Puppy Chow (or Reindeer Chow makes a great gift!!)

What finger fun recipes do you make with your child?

    What is reindeer chow?


    • It is like puppy chow, but around Christmas, you call it Reindeer Chow. Here is a link to a different recipe for it that is a little different (I actually like this one better). Here is a gluten-free recipe for the one that is like puppy chow! 🙂
