This year I am trying to make something special for my kids school snacks each month. My kids really like searching for our next project and we count and sort and talk and laugh and nibble while we are doing them each month. This month after our pinterest pins were reviewed we picked Ice-cream Cone Cornucopia Snacks. There are plenty of examples on the internet to choose from and the directions vary.
I need about 40 snacks. I make a few extra because I know the chances of them all arriving safely to the classroom are slim. We choose popcorn, pumpkin gummies and candy corn to fill our horns of plenty. My preschooler counted out our baggies while my second grader popped our kettlecorn.
Directions on the internet included using a steamer, or dipping in warm water. I found dipping them in simmering water for about 30 seconds, then microwave for 10 seconds…slowly and gently from the ends around a pencil or skewer. Make sure you don’t buy the cones with chocolate in the bottom for this.
Just a bit of popcorn and some Farm and Fleet clearance candy and we have snacks to gobble. I used baggies with the zip top cut off and a bit of ribbon in the school colors.
This was fun! We spent a bit more than 1 hour together start to finish. I think I will try these with larger waffle cones for our Thanksgiving kid’s table.
I hope those turkeys like them today.
Now, I have to start planning next month….
