Bird’s Nest Snack

I just started teaching preschool as part of a “Mommy Preschool” for my daughter.  We focused our preschool lesson on the letter “B”.  So, we learned everything we could about birds.  I let the kids make their own trail mix (I set out 8 bowls of different items and let them spoon it into a bag), went on a bird watching walk, did Do-A-Dot worksheets, made birdfeeders, sung a song about a bird & played musical instruments and of course had a snack…..Bird’s Nests!

Aren’t these so cute?

Bird’s Nest Snack

  • 3 cups Miniature Marshmallows
  • 3 Tbs Butter
  • 2 Tbs Peanut Butter
  • 1 5 oz can Chow Mein Noodles
  • Jelly Beans
  • In a pan over low heat, cook marshmallows, butter and peanut butter until marshmallows are melted; stir until blended. Remove from the heat; stir in chow mein noodles. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper & spray with pam.  Divide into 12 mounds on wax paper.

    With lightly greased hands, quickly shape each mound into a nest; make an indentation in the center. Fill nests with jelly beans. Store in an airtight container. Makes 1 dozen.’
