Here’s a simple cooking activity you can do with your students. Today I’m calling it “turkey food”, but I’ve also called it “reindeer oats,” “stir friend O’s,” and other things that fit with the season or a unit of study. It’s simple to prepare, inexpensive, healthy, and something the children will enjoy.

You will need:

Small cups

Large spoon
Electric skillet (Note! I kept this in my classroom and used it to make everything from play dough to bananas foster.)


  1. Put 4 TB. Butter in the skillet and heat on low until melted. 
  2. Stir in 8 cups of Cheerios and toast slightly. (At this point I would turn off the heat and pass the spoon to the children so they could all stir it and feel like they had “made it.”) 
  3. Sprinkle on salt. 
  4. Serve in cups.

You can also serve this in ice cream cones and the children can eat the cone after they finish the Cheerios.

Use cinnamon sugar instead of salt for a sweet Valentine snack. I called these kisses because of the “O’s.”
