Eat Your Worms Recipe
What's your Take?

Worms are delicious — when they're our bookworms made from crispy rice and marshmallows. Make a batch for Read Across America Day (March 2), and your child can sink her teeth into a treat while devouring a good book.

What you'll need

  • crispy rice cereal treats
  • butter
  • fruit leather
  • plastic wrap
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaner

How to make it

  1. Whip up a batch of crispy rice cereal treats, using your favorite recipe.

  2. Using buttery hands, mold the rice mixture into worm shapes (ours are about 5 inches long).

  3. Add three strips of fruit leather to each worm, securing the overlapping ends of each strip with a dot of water.

  4. Wrap the worms in plastic wrap, then add two googly eyes.

  5. Loop a pipe cleaner around the worm's neck and twist it together at the top. Curl the ends into antennae.
