Easy No-Bake "Cinnamon Rolls" {Cooking with Kids}

Here's a snack that kids can make themselves.  It's a great exercise in Montessori Practical Life skills.  All you need is sliced bread, softened butter or margarine, cinnamon, and sugar.  Here's how the kids make it...

First, the kids will make cinnamon sugar by combining 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.  Let them do the measuring themselves for a math activity.  The cinnamon sugar can be stored for other use in an empty spice container or tupperware.

Place a slice of bread (crust removed, if you want) on a flat surface and invite your child to roll it thin using a rolling pin.

The kids then spread softened butter (or margarine) on the bread and sprinkle it with the cinnamon-sugar blend they made.

Show them how to roll up the piece of bread starting at one edge.  Voila - "cinnamon rolls"!  They can be eaten like this or cut into smaller pieces.

My three year old and five year old twins all enjoyed making this snack independently.
