Benefits To Cooking With Preschoolers:
One of my favorite things to do with my family is cook! Everyone loves to help and there are always plenty of jobs to go around!
There are so many other benefits to cooking with kids besides being an awesome family bonding activity!
- Fine motor skills are strengthened as little ones help stir, sprinkle, and shake to create recipes!
- Cooking is a wonderful way to introduce math skills! Counting, adding, and using fractions are all part of following recipes!
- Little ones who know how to read can practice their skills by reading recipes aloud and helping with the sequencing of the recipe!
- Cooking provides the opportunity for little ones to share their creative side and imagination to make a special dish or party food!
How to Make Marshmallow Pops that are Frozen Themed:
- 24 regular-size marshmallows
- White candy melts or vanilla flavored almond bark
- Assorted Frozen inspired snowflake sprinkles
- Purple, Pink, and Blue candy melts
- Piping Bags
- Bamboo skewers or treat sticks
First line a baking sheet with wax paper. This will help with easy clean up!
Take four marshmallows and push them onto a skewer or treat stick. (long lollipop sticks can also be used!) This is a great opportunity to have your preschooler practice their counting and work on their fine motor skills as they maneuver the marshmallows onto the stick!
Repeat until all the marshmallows are on skewers. Place the skewers onto the wax paper covered baking sheet.
Now you will need your white candy melts or vanilla flavored almond bark. Follow the directions on the package to melt candy. (If using the microwave make sure you use a microwave safe bowl!) Be sure not to overheat it or it will seize!
Helpful hint! You can add 1 teaspoon of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to make the melted candy thinner and easier to pour!
Pour the melted white candy over the marshmallows on the skewers. One way you can do this is using a spoon! Allow the extra melted candy to drop back into the bowl. Place back onto the baking sheet and allow to dry completely.
Once the white candy has dried and solidified onto the marshmallows it’s time for the purple, pink, and blue candy melts!
Follow the package instructions to melt each of the individual colors. Once they are melted transfer them into three separate piping bags. Snip the corner of the piping bags and drizzle the melted candy onto the marshmallows!
Before the melted candy dries sprinkle on the Frozen snowflake sprinkles! Leave the marshmallow skewers on the baking sheet to dry completely.
Use a knife to trim off any excess melted chocolate attached to the wax paper before removing the marshmallow skewers from the wax paper.
Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container!
