Kids make these sweet nests to display Easter candy and enjoy as a snack.
Stuff: A mixing bowl, spoon, aluminum cupcake pans, chocolate chips, shredded wheat cereal, a microwave, and jelly beans.
What to do: Crumble 1 1/2 cups of shredded wheat cereal into a mixing bowl. Have an adult melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave, then mix the chocolate and shredded cereal. Place two spoonfuls of the mixture into each hole of the cupcake pan. Have kids form the mixture around the hole, leaving an indentation in the center. Place the nests in the refrigerator to cool for 10 minutes, and then let kids fill their nests with jelly beans for a yummy take-home Easter treat.
