Clifford Day

Doing tricks for some doggy treats!  They are actually graham cracker bones and yes, that's a new clean dog dish!

Making real dog treats!
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients together.  Knead the dough well, roll out, and cut into shapes.  Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes.  Let completely cool on wire rack!

 Super Sniffers Game!  I put smells in baby food jars and they had to match the pictures up with the smells!  I used banana extract, peppermint extract, cocoa powder, peanut butter, baby powder, cinnamon, and dirt!

 Our RED lunch!

 Puppy Chow for us to eat!
You will need:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
12 oz. bag of chocolate chips
12 oz. box of Crispix cereal
In a large pan, melt the butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter until smooth. Pour in the cereal and stir well to coat all the cereal. Spread the mixture onto wax paper and sift powdered sugar over all puppy chow until coated well! Very yummy!
 Diggin' for bones!  The older kids found bones and matched upper and lowercase letters and the toddlers just dug for the bones!

You can't have Clifford Day without looking just like him!  I asked that all the kids wear red also!
