It's been a weekend of activities outside for us. We also have been watching a couple of robin birds build their new spring nest this past week. It reminded me of a couple years back when some birds made nest in our mailbox and we got to watch them hatch and grow and then we even got to hold them!
(Don't worry. We were actually trying to save them, and it was all supervised and very sanitary too.)
So I thought it would be fun to make a little spring treat for my kids. It took me about 15-20 minutes tops with minimal ingredients and they turned out so fun, so I thought I would share really quick today!
All you need is: chow mein noodles, half a bag of marshmallows, a couple Tablespoons butter, and some candy robin eggs. (Perfect time of year to find these too!)
Melt your marshmallows and butter in a pan, then stir in your chow mein noodles until evenly coated. Spread a little butter on your hands and shaped into nests. Add the eggs! That's it! So easy and fun!
This batch made about a dozen, but it all depends on how big you make each nest. You could even make one HUGE one!
This one was a wee bit excited to bite into it! haha
And even my pickiest eater like them!
Hope you're getting a feel for spring, and if you're not, well maybe these will help! Happy Spring!
