Found this from a link on Dittomom's facebook site:

Here's the first link:

Here's the official Nestle link with the credit going to Lori Fillmore, a winner of last year’s Toll House Spooktacular Baking Activity Contest.

I'm going to do this at my grandson's preschool with about 15 three and four year olds. They will enjoy it I think.

I will. The plan is to go there once a month or so and do something along these lines with the kids. I found some cute turkey cupcakes on Pinterest for November, and of course we'll do gingerbread houses and cookies in December. I have tons of ideas for the whole year and I have a place eager to have me do it. I'm a happy camper!

Working with pre-schooler's is the best! I'm getting lonesome for the "good 'ol days" at elementary school where the kids were actually thrilled to have me show up and tell stories and sit in their classrooms and volunteer for different stuff. Now they are "too old" for that "kid stuff". sniff....sniff....pity party.....

I miss being a preschool teacher, but I get my kiddie fix watching my grandsons and volunteering at Brendan's preschool. I have years and years of experience to share, and lots of baking to do with them.

Brendan is actually into cooking and baking. He loves it. At three and a half years old one of his favorite shows is Jamie Oliver. He critiques his mother's knife skills (like mine they are almost non-existent) and recently he presented his dad with a plate of play dough "food". Chris asked what he had "cooked" and Brendan answered, "Paella". Twelve years of teaching preschool and no child ever presented me with a plate of pretend paella. He'll be teaching me before he's 10!

I rarely come to the seasonal section, but boy am I happy I did today! Those are just too unbelievably cute! I just might make some for my daughter's school for their Halloween celebration.

Cakedujour, that is too funny!

They are really cute, wish I had some little kids to make these for. The three and four year olds will just think they are awesome, I am sure!

Fondant was my plan if allergies were to be an issue, but they aren't, so I will use the almonds.

I've seen similar made using slices of red apple, marshmallows and peanut butter. If you wanted to offer a bit healthier treat to the kids, this is the way to go.

I've seen that one too. The cookies will be going home with the children though so their parents can monitor the snack and give it to them after they've had their good food. If they were going to have it at school, for sure I would have used the apples.

Today was cookie day. I had another grandma there to help me. It was great fun. The kids had a blast too. They were very proud of their scary cookie creations. I'll be back in the middle of November with something for Thanksgiving. I'm learning toward turkey cupcakes but you never know what else might strike my fancy. :-< (fangs, lol)
