Teddy Bear Picnic and more edible finger puppets


We had an impromptu teddy bear picnic yesterday complete with edible finger puppets, bear claws, and a teddy bear sandwich.  Follow along below to make your own teddy bear treats.  We used the finger puppets to tell the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears and then watched "The Teddy Bear Picnic" song on youtube.


To make your edible teddy finger puppets you need: peanut butter (or frosting) for "glue", Mini chocolate chips, brown "toasted coconut" marshmallows, mini white marshmallows, pull-n-peel for mouth, and pretzels for the finger puppet part.  We were out of the regular stick kind of pretzels and had to improvise.  Those actually work the best though

Each bear uses 1.5 of the brown marshmallows: one for the head, then cut one in half.  Turn it so the sticky side is down and cut it in half again for the ears.  The nose is a mini marshmallow cut in half.  Use the peanut butter like "glue" to hold them in place.  The eyes and nose are mini chocolate chips "glued" on too.  The mouth is a small piece of pull-n-peel.  If you have a peanut allergy to work around, try frosting instead.

One of our people from the village helped out as Goldilocks.

We've had a lot of fun with our other edible finger puppets here and here too.


Our bear claws are made from pretzels with chocolate chips melted to the ends for little claws.

This little bear was very tasty!

I used the lid from our Jiffy jar to cut the head from the bread.  Then the ears were from the top edges of the bread.  Use the peanut butter to "glue" it all together.  The nose is a banana slice with raisins for eyes.

Mmmm!

This Little Project was Yum!  For more Fun with Food look to the left side bar title "Fun with Food."
