Here’s a fun website – Magic Tricks for Kids!
Kristen age 10 and her dad Ken have a pretty nifty website for children who want to learn magic tricks.
The Magic Tricks For Kids website shows children how to make their very own illusion equipment using simple objects from around the home.
A step-by-step video lesson teaches them how to perform their new trick like a master magician.
Fun, interactive and unique. You can do magic so check the site out http://magictricksforkids.org
Rice Krispies Treats – Watermelon
8 cups marshmallows
6 T butter
food coloring – green and red
8 cups crispy rice cereal
a few chocolate chips or raisins for “watermelon seeds”
Grease two 8-9″ round cake pans.
Make 2 batches as following, first with green food coloring, then with red.
Melt in pan on low heat, stirring gently:
4 cups marshmallows
3 T butter
Remove from heat and add color, one drop at a time. Once the color is uniform, add the crispy rice cereal.
Divide in 1/2 – make a ring around the inside of 2 greased cake pans. You might want to rub your fingers in butter to do this so it doesn’t stick to you, as it’s kinda hot. :-)
Make the red batch, same directions as above. Divide in 1/2 again – press into center of the pans.
Place chocolate chips or raisins in the red area while still warm.
Press them in a bit so they’ll stay.
Cutting with a serrated knife seems to work best.
It might be helpful to dip the knife in a glass of water if it’s sticking.
This is some great summer fun!!
