A RAFT-tastic recipe

The boys and I are absolutely loving this month’s books.
This recipe is the perfect follow-up to reading,

The Raft
by Jim LaMarche.

Unknown-1Click HERE for book review.

Here is what you will need:

  • Pirouette cookies
  • Graham crackers
  • Chocolate chips
  • Edible ink markers
  • Cutting board
  • Knife


Start by cutting the Pirouette cookies down to fit the length of a 1/2 graham cracker and line 4 of them up next to each other to form our “logs”.  Eat all the extra ends while the kids aren’t watching.


Melt down your chocolate chips to make some delicious “glue”.


Spread on a layer of melted chocolate on to your graham cracker “platform”.


Flip over and press gently down, squishing the chocolate “glue” onto the “logs”.


Let dry for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate has completely set.  Grab your edible ink markers and get to drawing!


The boys and I thought about our most recent adventure along the bayou and they drew the animals that they saw.FFP_RaftSnack7

Noah did an awesome job of drawing a brown pelican and some flowers he saw along the way.


Levi drew a tank and a shark.  Can’t you tell?  🙂
