Kid's Kitchen Creation: Worm Rolls

Updated: Mar 1

Worm Rolls Kitchen Creation: Worm Unit

Worm What?

It may sound like a strange combination, food and worms, but when you are a homeschool family, anything used to drive their education further is on the table. We've done some odd edible creations to explore or to introduce our topics;

I knew with a worms lesson plan, things were going to get a bit unusual-

and for the sake of science, of course!

While I had our fried worms plan to cook up with our reading of How To Eat Fried Worms, I was also looking for a fun and tasty way to introduce the anatomy of a worm. It may not occur to most to pair something to eat while exploring anatomy, but to us, it's just a day in the life in our homeschool! I was certainly going to need a food that resembled segments and the coiled body type, so down the mental store aisles I went, and landed on the ingredients for what we now call "Worm Rolls".

If a worm lesson plan is wiggling your way, then here's a fun and easy kitchen creation to enjoy, along with growing their learning inch by inch!

What You'll Need:

Let's Make It:

Step 1: Preheat the oven as directed on

the Pillsbury tube.

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with parchment

paper. Use the pre-cut sections of dough to

roll up the crescents, but roll the dough

more tightly, and keep the roll straight rather

than curving it into the crescent shape.

Step 3: Place the rolls into the preheated oven and bake according to the instructions

on the Pillsbury tube.

Step 4: Prepare the frosting. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar to a bowl. Add in roughly 1 cup of milk to the powdered sugar. Use a hand mixer and mix ingredients together.

Add ingredients if needed to achieve a slightly thick consistency. Add in drops of food coloring to achieve your desired worm color.

Step 5: Once the rolls have cooled, spread on the frosting over the rolls, or dip and cover the rolls in the bowl of frosting.

Step 6: Allow the frosting to set up, or for a faster result, place the sheet of frosted rolls into the fridge until the frosting has set.

Step 7: As an optional display, crush up graham crackers and pour onto a cutting board. Add the green sprinkles around the graham cracker crumbs. Lay the worm rolls on top of the graham crackers.

Serve and enjoy!
