Humpty – Dumpty Sandwich 
Added: 04-29-1998 
Original Author: Unknown

You will need (for each plate):
1 peeled hard-boiled egg
2 raisins
a 3 – or 4 layered sandwich
carrot rings

Humpty is a peeled hard-boiled egg, with features of raisins pushed gently in the hardened white surface. The wall is a three or four layered sandwich, (filled with chicken salad, meat loaf, tuna fish, anything you wish). Cut away all the crusts, then slice the sandwich in half, revealing the smooth surface of wall (a toothpick stuck half in Humpty, half in the sandwich, will hold him in place on top). The cobblestones are carrot rings surrounding the sandwich.

Need: 2 packages commercial biscuit mix, 1 cup water, egg white, food coloring

Supplies: Toaster or regular oven, small paintbrush, bowl, mixing spoon, paper plates, small toy rolling pins, measuring cup

Directions: Have the children mix the biscuit dough and roll out a small portion on their plates.  We then helped the child paint their first initial on the top of the biscuit with egg white colored with food coloring. Cook biscuits on an un-greased cookie sheet for  12-15 minutes in oven at 350 degrees until light brown.  This recipe makes about twenty biscuits depending on size.  We did this activity on the day we highlighted the rhyme, Pat-A-Cake, Pat-A-Cake, Baker’s Man.  Caution:  Be sure to refrigerate egg white until use.

Make a spider’s web cake or cupcakes by frosting with a dark-colored frosting. Use white icing to pipe concentric circles on the cake(s). Take a knife and run it through the very top surface of the piping, starting in the middle and drawing it to the outside edge. Repeat six or eight times around the cake. Place a plastic spider on top of each cake or cupcake.

Melt a bag of Butterscotch chips (not the store brands they do not melt well, we used Nestles and they worked great!!)  in the microwave… on high it takes about 1 min 30 seconds. Add 10 oz. of Chinese Noodles and place in piles  on a sheet of wax paper. They look like piles of hay.
