Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips for Getting the Kids Involved
  1. Have the older kids mix the marshmallows, butter, and cereal. Be very careful as the marshmallow and butter are very hot.
  2. Kids of all ages can shape the balls and the nests.
  3. Younger kids can count the number of candies to go in each basket. They can also separate them by color.
