Simple Treats Kids Can Make

When I was growing up, one of my favorite treats that mom "made" were these...Vanilla Wafer Cookies.

I made them for my kids and my daycare kids....but often, them made them for themselves.  What can be quicker and easier than opening a box of vanilla wafers and spreading a dollop of peanut butter or Nutella between them?

It's SO easy kids can make them for themselves.  If you are a parent or childcare provider, these are the perfect to help kids build self help skills. They also provide a way for kids to learn one to one correspondence.  One vanilla wafer top...goes on one vanilla wafer bottom.

Please keep in mind this snack has both peanut butter and gluten...just in case those are things your kiddos can't have.

Happy Snacking!!
