Lions, & Tigers & Bears, Yum! Yum!

Whenever my mom went grocery shopping, she would treat me to a box of Barnum's Animal Crackers. Even though they were called crackers, I considered them more of a cookie and would save them to enjoy after lunch, or as a reward for making it through a long day of school. They're great plain, but in a few steps, you can also have a delicious after school snack. Crunchy celery is filled with creamy peanut butter and topped with the crackers. If your child has an allergy to peanuts, substitute cream cheese for the peanut butter. It's so simple that older children can help make and serve it to their younger siblings. To take a look at the recipe,
