Kid Friendly Recipe : Dunkaroo Dip with Animal Crackers

Dunkaroo Dip

Homemade Dunkaroo Dip so easy a Kid can make it. I remember Dunkaroos fondly and who can resist the taste of frosting and animal crackers. This recipe is even better than the Dunkaroos I remember.

We struggle with everything from her grabbing everything under the sun to ‘add to the project’ to her not wanting to do the project I chose for us to do. There are many ways to approach this and to be quite honest: I haven’t been approaching it in the best of ways lately. First of all, you could get fed up and ...

My favorite thing of all is giving a child a wide variety of things in front of them, a piece of paper and some glue (or tape) and letting them go ‘wild’ with their creativity.
