I am signed up to take the treat to preschool next week for my dd's 3rd b-day. They don't want cake or cupcakes with frosting. I know I could make either w/o frosting, or maybe some yummy cookies, but I was hoping to do something fun or different.<br><br>
Any ideas? Thanks

I once heard that you can bake cupcake batter right into an ice cream cone (the kind with the flat bottom). That might be kind of fun and different! I think you do it exactly the same way as you would in pan, just spoon the batter 2/3 of the way up.<br><br>
You can do a google search for "ice cream cone brownies" and see what comes up....

Make plain sugar cookies buy some food coloring markers and let the kids draw on them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> We did that for halloween cookies last year. Got cookie cutters in the shapes of ghosts, bats, pumpkins, and decorated them with the markers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Hi yogamama2+1 -<br><br>
I just wanted to say that I like your name!<br><br>
Hmmm, do I have any snack ideas? How about single servings of jello or pudding? My son's preschool has a fridge and we can bring treats like that...<br><br>
Cookies in fun shapes actually sound best to me.<br><br>

P.S. What kind of yoga do you practice? I have a very gentle off-the-mat kind of practice these days... Ha, ha. I actually have been teaching a little bit of prenatal yoga, but I have a 3 mo old baby and I have not gotten into a good routine since her birth.

I let my ds choose the treat for his 4 year old preschool party, and he asked for ice cream sandwiches. So we made sugar cookies, decorated courtesy of ds and dd (think lots of mishmash in a heap on one side :LOL ) and put chocolate chip ice cream in the middle. They were a huge hit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

These ideas are great! And just what I was looking for. Thanks!<br><br>

I practice hatha yoga, pretty much all forms. It generally tends to be toward the astanga side, but i love the gentle, off the mat stuff too! I am in the same class right now (I'm 15 weeks preg) that i've been in since ds was born. I had planned to get certified this fall, but will now wait until next fall. In the meantime, I am also doing some "instructing" which is basically more like demonstrations. I looooove it.

My dd's preschool is pretty serious about the no-sweet-snacks rule, but most moms bring cupcakes in for birthdays anyway. I mean, it IS a birthday after all...<br><br>
But if you really can't bring cake or anything too sugary, what about muffins? Most preschoolers I know love these as much as cupcakes, especially with lots of blueberries in them!
