Make ants on a log... or a stump.

This is a healthy snack kids can make for themselves. Cut up celery sticks, give your kids a glob of peanut butter, a pile of raisins and a plastic knife. Let kids assemble their own "ants on a log." Norah didn't end up liking the raw celery, so I let her use round crackers which we pretended were "tree stumps" for her "ants." You can use the raisins to practice counting.
