Teddy Bear Toast (Edible Crafting)

>I grew up in Vancouver but spent the last six years in Winnipeg where both my children were born. Yes I went through some pretty rough winter’s but I also made some amazing friends. One of my really good friends, Roxanne, who was coincidentally my neighbour, played a really big role in our family’s life. We were sad to say goodbye to their family when we left. But we’ve stayed in touch and I’m really excited to introduce Roxanne and have her do her first guest blog post on The Write Balance. Here’s a little bit more about Roxanne:
After teaching for 6 years (my last position was as a Grade 4 French Immersion Teacher) and after the birth of our second child I decided to stay home full-time. I am loving what I call ”retiring while you’re still young enough to enjoy it!” I love waking up everyday, deciding what we will do and participating in many of the community preschool activities that are within walking distance from our condo in Winnipeg. I feel blessed to have time to enjoy my children at their very special ages as well as to be a part of a wonderful community.

Teddy-Bear Toast
This treat is both a healthy snack or (as we enjoyed) a filling breakfast.  Simple enough for my 3 1/2 year old and 17 month to make mostly on their own!
8 Simple Steps: 
Step 1: Get out your ingredients:

We will definitely be trying that next time we need a fun activity and snack. It’s a two in one deal! Thanks Roxanne.
