The “Can Do” Kids Cooking Club

May 28th, 2010

It’s Saturday and some of the “Can Do” Kids are holding their cooking club at Grandma Maureen’s house. They are making one of their favorite snacks to share with their friends at the community center after the ping-pong match in the afternoon. They are making “Ants on a Log” a snack that is good for them and tastes good too! It is also easy and fun to make.  Here is the recipe, if you want to make it.

“Ants on a Log”

Serves 8

8 tablespoons of peanut butter

4 large stalks of celery

4 teaspoons of raisins

Tools: plastic spoon, paper towels for cleanup


The “Can Do”kids wash their hands and put on aprons before they start to make “Ants on a Log”

Since the “Can Do”s cannot use a knife, Grandma Maureen cuts the celery in to two pieces for each “Can Do” Kid to fill.

Each “Can Do” Kid washes and dries their celery pieces then fills them to the top with peanut butter. They each use a plastic spoon to scoop the peanut butter into the celery and then use the handle of the spoon to  smooth out the peanut butter so it is even with the sides of the celery pieces. Then they take the raisins and line them up in a row to look like ants walking on a log.

Once the “Can Do’ Kids are finished making “Ants on a Log”, they wrap them to carry to the community center. Before they leave Grandma Maureen’s they help clean up their work area.
