PRESCHOOLERS CAN HELP MAKE THIS YUMMY DESSERT

Thanksgiving is on our doorstep so let's have a little fun with our preschoolers and kindergarten kids. Let them help choose the apples in the store and find the caramels and chocolate. Just the preparation for this dessert will be such fun for them.

Chocolate Turtle Apple Slices
Ingredients
2 very large Fuji apples
3 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (Nestle)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (I used refined coconut oil so it doesn't taste like coconut.)
1 cup caramels, melted ( Kraft caramels)
Chopped pecans or Sprinkles
Instructions
Slice apples into 1/2" pieces. With a knife make a little slit in the bottom of each apple slice to make it easier to insert a popsicle stick. Insert a popsicle stick into each piece of apple. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave on high for about 2 minutes (in 30 second intervals, don't overheat because the chocolate will burn).* Stir in coconut oil until smooth. Dip apple slices in chocolate and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Place caramels in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 45-60 seconds.* Do NOT overheat. Stir until smooth. Drizzle melted caramel over chocolate and sprinkle with nuts or Sprinkles.
Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Serve and enjoy immediately. Apples are best the first day. Store in refrigerator.
*For best results, follow the chocolate chip package instructions for melting chocolate and same for caramel. Follow the caramel package instructions for melting caramels.
Note: If you're concerned about biting into an apple seed, just remove them before dipping the apple slice in chocolate.
Don't fuss if there’s a bit of a mess, they will have such fun helping out.

DITCH THE FLASHING LIGHTS FOR PRESCHOOLERS -
Simple toys benefit kids the most. From birth to school age, play is the most essential to children's development as it contributes to cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children and youth. The most important toys are still the ones that facilitate play between adults and children allowing the learning of pretend play, expanding their imagination and interaction with others and socialization. When children play simple games or with blocks, lego, building or just everyday utensils such as spoons and cardboard boxes, with parents the true magic happens. Build a tent with a blanket, then take a snack, a book and a flashlight into the tent and see how excited your little one gets.

TEACH PRESCHOOLERS ABOUT COLD AND FLU GERMS. How to help prevent the spread of these germs in Preschools, Kindergartens and Day cares.
According to the CDC, children should be taught to practice good hygiene to help lower the spread of germs.
Germs can make you sick. People can pass colds and flu through germs.
Germs are everywhere. They are so small that you cannot see them without a microscope.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze so you don’t pass germs on to others. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands the right way to get rid of germs and lower the chance of spreading germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough. Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to keep from getting sick and spreading illness.
Wash hands:
after you cough or sneeze
After using the toilet
After you play outside
After shaking hands with other people
After you touch animals, including your pet
Before you eat or touch food
Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth until your hands are clean because germs spread that way.
Tell children to let an adult know if they feel sick.
The flu spreads mostly from person to person through coughs and sneezes of people who are sick with the flu. You may also get sick by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching your mouth or nose. Simple practices can help slow the spread of colds and flu.
Stay healthy this winter season!

CULTIVATE GRATITUDE AND POSITIVITY IN PRESCHOOLERS
Toddlers and preschoolers are by nature self-centered so teaching gratitude will be tricky initially and take some patience. Persevering, however, will make for more sensitive, caring children and overall help teenagers in the long run to feel optimistic, joyful and connected to their peers.

Children who aren’t taught gratitude could end up feeling entitled and perpetually disappointed.
A good start with children of any age is to get them involved in doing something for someone else. Helping make a salad, sweep the floor, set the table or make the bed will help them focus their attention on doing something for others instead of demanding for themselves. Start by teaching children good manners like saying Please, Thank You, Good Morning and Goodbye. This alone will help children to realize other people's feelings and emotions count. Start a gift giving box where they can regularly add a toy that they no longer play with. Saying No to always buying what they want will help them to appreciate the times you say Yes.
Lets face it selfishness has never been an endearing quality!
