"Horton Hears A Who!" Treats

Enjoy A Field Of Clovers!

I Hear You!

In the midst of adding in all the essential learning inside a home school lesson plan, creating all the extra touches to round out the thematic unit can leave you quiet. Ideas like new crafts, social/emotional development exercises, and what I call kitchen creations, are what we all desire to include but these things can sometimes get set aside. While piecing together our "Horton Hears A Who!" lesson plan I wanted to include the kitchen creation, but what could we make that would coordinate with our story?

Speak Up!

If you've ever been racking your brain, trying to incorporate the 'fun stuff' into a lesson, but have come up empty, I'm here to speak up with you and say, "I can't think of anything!". Partly because the crafts and kitchen creations are some of my favorite parts of creating lesson plans, I am always desperate to include them and come up with something different to go along with our topic, however small..

. Even Who-Sized Small.

Though these clover treats may not be the most elaborate or stunning, they were fun and easy to make, and sometimes just that is a great thing. Just that time away, from the desks the chairs, and learning, is the goal of these activities. These clover treats added that extra touch for the kids that made the lesson sweet and the bit of continuity I love to include in each thematic unit study.

Here's What You'll Need:

Large Marshmallows

Coconut Shavings

Marshmallow Creme

Food Coloring

Wooden Skewers

Wax Paper


Step 1: Prepare the coconut shavings. In a medium bowl, pour in the coconut shavings. Add drops of red food coloring to the coconut. Stir until desired pink color is reached.

Step 2: Cover the workspace with wax paper. Pour the coconut shavings onto the wax paper and spread along the paper.

Step 3: Scoop out the marshmallow creme into a bowl.

Step 4: Stick a marshmallow onto a wooden skewer. Dip the marshmallow into the bowl of marshmallow creme until well coated.

Step 5: Remove the marshmallow from the creme and roll the marshmallow along the coconut shavings until coated.


**As a display option, I covered a foam block in green tissue paper, then stuck the skewers into the block.


You're Not On Your Own Out There,
