Family Fun Activities
Cub Crafts - Coffee Filter Butterfly
Can you ever have enough butterflies decorating your home? I don't think so! Help your youngster make enough of these adorable butterflies to fill your house with that touch of Spring!
- Coffee filters
- Paint brush
Lay the coffee filter onto a protected surface (on a piece of paper or tablecloth).
Encourage your child to color on the coffee filter gently with a variety of colors (using the markers).
Then, get a clean cup of water and a paint brush and have your child take water and paint on top of the markers. The colors will run together, making this beautiful pattern.
Once the coffee filter is dry, wrap the pipe cleaner around the middle and make antennae.
No-Bake Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Bars
These fast, easy, bars cost just a fraction of storebought bars to make, they’re healthier, and they’ve got fun, bright colors. They’re a texture lover’s dream between the cereal, dried fruit, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds. Use what you have on hand and enjoy!
Yield: One 8-by-8-inch pan, 12 snack bars
Total Time: 2+ hours, for chilling
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes, microwave
- 1/4 cup creamy unsalted butter (half of one stick)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
- 1 cup raisins - optional (honey-roasted peanuts, almonds, or trail mix may be substituted)
- 1/2 cup chocolate-covered sunflower seeds - optional
- Pinch sea salt for sprinkling - optional
- Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil leaving overhang, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, honey, brown sugar, and heat on high power for 1 minute to melt.
- Stop to stir. Mixture will be on the granular side, this is okay.
- Return bowl to microwave and heat for 1 more minute on high power. Stop to stir
- Return bowl to microwave and heat for 1 more minute on high power. Stop to stir. On this third and final burst, mixture will become quite bubbly and foamy; use caution when removing from micro because this is boiling hot caramel and can cause burns.
- Stir in the vanilla using caution because mixture could bubble up.
- Stir in the cereal.
- Stir in the optional raisins (or nuts).
- Turn mixture out into prepared pan, packing it down firmly with a spatula and smoothing the top.
- Optionally, sprinkle evenly with sunflower seeds and salt (the salt cuts some of the sweetness and I recommend it).
- Cover pan with a sheet of foil (to prevent fridge smells), and place pan in fridge to set up for at least 2 to 3 hours, or overnight, or until bars are completely set before lifting out with foil overhang, slicing, and serving.
- Bars will keep airtight in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. I recommend storing them in the fridge rather than room temp because they soften and get loose.
Take a nature hike with a family member or guardian. Carry a notebook on your walk and write down all the signs of spring you spot...like bugs, flowers, and leaves sprouting. When you get back from your hike, look back at the notebook and talk with a family member or friend about what you noted.
Sit down with adults in your family to watch a Spring movie. We suggest The Secret Garden or Springtime for Max & Ruby. After the movie ends, give it a family rating. What did you like best or least about the Spring movie your family chose?
What do you call a grizzly bear caught in the rain? A drizzly bear.
What do you give a sick bird? A tweet-ment
Why are people always tired in April? Because they just finished a March.
