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
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.
