Campfire You can Eat (Summer Kits)

This has been one of my favorite projects in the SUMMER KITS trade I did, so I thought I would share, My daughter is 2 1/2 and with a little help she love it, we did have to explain that we "build" first and then get to eat! I would do this on a camping trip, or an evening of fun and follow up with roasting marshmallows.

** it also teaches some fire safety ie. fire safe line ,having water on stand by and dirt to "put out" the fire.

This project gets 4 Stars, easy prep, a little help for younger children, teaches safety and the best for the kids, satisfaction that they made something that taste sooo yummy!

12-inch flour tortilla 1 (we just used a plate)
Red licorice rope 2
Peanuts approx 25
Peanut butter 1-2 Tablespoones
Fried Chinese noodles small handful
Tootsie Rolls 10
Mini pretzel sticks 10
White grape juice powder or fozen juice
Hot cocoa powder 1 Tablespoon
Candy corn 7

1. To make an edible campfire, first clear a space on the table to build a safe fire. Lay down a tortilla fire base and wrap a licorice rope safety circle around the tortilla about an inch in from the edge. Build a peanut rock ring halfway between the safety circle and the center of the fire base. Spread a circle of peanut butter in the center of the fire base, then lay a small handful of fried Chinese noodles on top for kindling.

2. Lay Tootsie Roll logs around the peanut butter circle. Use mini pretzel sticks as fuel wood to build a tepee inside the ring of logs and over the kindling, sticking the pretzels into the peanut butter at a 45-degree angle.

3. Add another layer of logs, setting them across the corners of the first layer to form a box around the tepee. Lay a few more pieces of fuel wood across the logs.

4. Make sure buckets of water (glasses of grape juice) and dirt (hot cocoa powder) are nearby to put out the fire if necessary, then light the fire by adding candy corn flames.

5. After the camp director approves the fire, throw dirt on the fire to put it out. Now, the moment the fire builders have been waiting for: Eat your fires!

Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

I made this recipe today and EVERYONE said it was good! Soooooo I'd like to share.
4-5 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 8oz. pkg. Cream cheese
1 pkg. Taco Seasoning
1 C. Salsa
1/4 C. water (use less, or none if your chicken is still frozen)
Cook 4-5 hrs. on high or 8-10 hrs. on low. Near the end of cooking shred meat while still in the crock pot. Serve on tortillas with lettuce,cheese,tomatoes etc.
*I did not add any water because my chicken was frozen and it turned out perfect*
*I cooked mine for 6 hours on low and it was done*
