Preschool Snack Recipes

Preschool snack recipes can give kids a chance to get their hands involved in cooking experiences and be able to eat their creations. Every preschooler loves the chance to cook like a big person and play with their food. In my experience teaching preschool age kids and doing many preschool playgroups these are some of mine, and the kids, favorite preschool recipes.

What you do:
Take your tortilla and put it in a pan or plate. Warm tortilla. Be careful not to burn the tortilla. Or warm in a microwave for 15-20 seconds. Then remove the tortilla and add the mini candy bar and the mini marshmallows.
