    What about Eggs on a Grill ( Candy) recipe #58926 but shape the "grill" into a letter X?
    Sounds like a fun party.

    Ugh. "X" is a hard one! You can do all sorts of foods in the shape of an x, but there must be some other idea. I'll start thinking. icon_wink.gif

    Cut Hostess twinkies in half, so using one whole twinkie and the two halves at an angle on either side of the center of the whole one form an X (if you simply put the two whole ones on top of each other you would have a teeter totter effect, hence the cut). Now do that several times over and in between have chocolate cupcakes, so that the twinkie X's and the round cupcakes form the X's and O's of a tic tac toe game icon_smile.gif

    Oh you got cursed too... my sympathies.. My dear son had letter x for kindergarten last week. When the list came out last fall my thoughts were either the teacher HATES me or she thinks I'm that good. Anywho.. [url]http://bbs.reimanpub.com/bulletinboard.asp?view=reply&threadnum=635726&catnum=85&headnum=2 is where I got some ideas and then worked out one of our own from the suggestions.

    The ideas we had and then then one we used. Rice Krispie treats cut with a large "X" cookie cutter, a small baggie of hershey's hugs and kisses (x's and o's), a cake made up like tic-tac-toe with x's winning. a cake or cookie decorated like a xylophone. and the winner was a candy xylophone for each child. and with the easter candy out this should work great.

    Take a piece of wide tape (like easy tear packing tape) center the following items in order.
    M&M minis funsize (made special for easter)
    Laffy Taffy from the pick a mix section or get a small bag
    Starburst funsize (again from the easter candy section)
    Miniature KitKat(either the easter section for the colors or regular section)
    Smarties (not sure if those come packaged or just in the pic a mix section of stores)
    and finally a tootise roll.
    Cut the tape a little long to flip it up over the tootsie roll to hold it in place.

    How about making X's out of pretzle sticks, and melting a candy in the middle, like the rollo treats recipe here on zaar. Sorry , don't have the # at the moment. The melted candy would secure the X.

    Somewhere I did see a Xylophone Cake. It was pieces of cake cut into the sizes of the xylphone keys, then food-colored icings to make it look like that classic metal xylophone that we all had as kids. icon_rolleyes.gif


    Found it! Here's the link:

    I wanna have that room mother icon_smile.gif nice job was this kindergarten??? The teacher's just love to hype the kids up on sugar and then hand them over to after school icon_smile.gif we stay out and do lots of races on those days! It truly is amazing what kind of parties kids have at school. Sometime I think that the mother's try to out do each other! and the kids get the benefit icon_smile.gif

    Actually she only let them have 2 pieces of the candy at school. I made it something portable as was a short day due to parent-teacher conferences.. figured parents or other care takers could ration out the rest.

    Yes, my 1st thought exactly! icon_smile.gif
    Graham cracker sticks using Apple Pie Spread to make the sticks stick.....omit the nuts in case of allergies

    Another, but actually the same idea I posted in your "W" thread: get Ritz crackers and make the letter "X" with spray cheese on each of them. Or use the pretzel, regular cracker, carrot or celery sticks as the "X" and use the cheese spray to secure them.

    What about a Chex Mix or Kix Cereal...X doesn't show up at the beginning of a word very often....so the snack shouldn't have to begin with it either icon_smile.gif

    wave.gif Hi jodibear and welcome to the Kids Cooking Forum

    This thread was started in 2006....so somehow managed to re-surface,
    I'm guessing this child would have graduated from childcare to school by now
