- 1 cup Peanut butter
- 1 cup Light corn syrup
- 1 1/2 cup Dry powdered milk
- 1 1/2 cup Sifted confectioners sugar
- 1 large Bowl and a wooden spoon
- Paper plates and pencils
1 Help the children measure the peanut butter, corn syrup, dry powdered milk, and confectioners sugar into the large bowl. 2 They can take turns stirring with the wooden spoon until everything is mixed and a stiff dough forms. 3 give everyone a paper plate and a pencil. 4 Each child should write his or her name on the bottom of the plate. 5 Make sure they hold their pencils correctly and use uppercase and lower case letters. 6 put a portion of dough on each plate. 7 The children can shape it into bite-sized balls by pinching off pieces and rolling them between their hands. 8 smaller children who cannot make balls can make snakes. 9 Then they can cut the snakes into segments (with an adults help) to make bite-sized pieces. 10 leave the peanut butter balls on the children"s plates and refrigerate them until firm, about 1 hour.
