Twice the fun on Day #2

Today was Ryan's turn to open the door for the advent calendar.

Day 2 - Make Rice Krispy Treats!

We had a lot of fun! We made a bit of a mess but we really let the boys be hands on. Both boys helped measure out the cereal and dump it in a bowl. Reid got to stand at the stove and stir the marshmallows and butter (and then peanut butter) - pretty scary but he did a good job listening. He left one hand on the handle and stirred with the other hand. I was pretty proud of him. Ryan got to butter the dish the treats were going in. He got into it after just a second. Both boys helped stir the cereal into the melted "goo." Three spoons trying to stir wasn't the easiest but we got it all stirred up, dumped them out and smashed them down with wax paper. After we got our jammies on (while dad cleaned up the kitchen) and they had time to cool - we all enjoyed one before we went to bed.

Tomorrow night dad comes out from behind the camera and leads the event - I hope I can get as many great pics as he does...

Hey! Please, don't make fun of a copyright of 1959. One of my books is a McGuffey's Reader dated 1853. Now that is OLD!
