Teddy Bear Toast

Bears love honey, and your little ones will too! In this cooking activity, adults help children make bear-shaped toast topped with honey-butter and cinnamon sugar! Yum!
 Materials:  Toaster, sliced bread, whipped butter, honey, cinnamon, sugar, teddy bear cookie cutter, bowl, spoons, butter knives.
 Before you start this activity with the children, prepare the honey-butter and cinnamon-sugar so that it is ready for children to use.  To make the honey butter, simply mix equal parts butter and honey.

 To make the cinnamon-sugar, simply combine cinnamon and sugar.  You can either combine them in a small bowl and children can sprinkle it over their toast with their fingers or you can put the mixture into a spice jar and they can shake it over their toast.

 Children may put their slice of bread into the toaster. Children should always be supervised while using the toaster. This would also be a good time to talk about hot surfaces; which parts of the toaster could be touched and which should not because you may get burned.
 When the toast is ready, children may use the cookie cutter to cut into the bread. 

 Spread the honey-butter onto the toast.

 Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top.
