Mother's Day Treat

Second Grade Holidays Activities: Mother's Day Treat

What You Need:

  • 10-12 strawberries
  • Toothpicks
  • Several bars of dark or milk chocolate
  • A microwave safe bowl
  • A spoon
  • A sheet of wax paper
  • Microwave
  • Refrigerator
  • Water

What You Do:

  1. Have your child rinse strawberries before beginning this project.
  2. Next, ask him to put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it at 30-second increments, until it is thoroughly melted. Use your spoon to test the consistency; be sure it doesn't overheat! (Burnt chocolate has both a bad taste and smell.)
  3. Stick one toothpick into the top, leafy-green part of each strawberry
  4. Now, help him dip the strawberries one at a time into the chocolate. Turn the toothpick until the entire strawberry is coated in chocolate—yum!
  5. After all the strawberries are coated, ask him to place them side-by-side into a heart formation. Allow them to dry a bit, and then remove the toothpicks.
  6. Have him use the toothpicks to connect the strawberries one by one.
  7. Place the strawberries on a sheet of wax paper in the refrigerator to cool.
  8. The chocolate-covered wreath is ready! Be sure to refrigerate it until he's ready to give it to Mom!
