Warm Up with 4 Fun and Kid-Friendly Winter Recipes
When the temperature plunges and the windchill soars, what do you do with your family? Forget about watching movies or playing video games – boring. Bundle up your kids and get ready for some Illinois winter fun. Build a snowman. Strap on a pair of ice skates. Make snow angels. After burning off excess energy, gather the troops and head indoors for some winter warm-up culinary activities. Not sure what to create? Here are four DIY healthy-ish food projects and winter recipes you can make and eat with your kids.
Sip, sip, hooray! After hours of playing outside, your kids will love dunking Snowflake Marshmallows into a cup of Hot Cocoa. Skip the prepackaged brands and make your own. I recommend preparing the cocoa mix in advance and storing it in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to six months. Another tip: Make the marshmallow batter the day before. This helps it firm up so your kids can stamp out fluffy snowflakes with a cookie cutter.
