Christmas Treats for the Dogs
While putting together our goodie plates for the neighbors...
...the children decided we should add treats for their dogs, as well.
They made cheese and garlic dog (and people) biscuits, following a recipe from the back of...
...Maggie Stern's George and Diggety (you can view the recipe on the author's website, here). The book is actually a collection of three short, easy chapter book type stories. The dog biscuits go along with a birthday story, but there is a story about a snow day, entitled "Sledding", so I figured that was good enough to let us include the book as one of our countdown to Christmas, picture books, with crafts or recipes included.
After we cut biscuits for our neighborhood dogs, and had them baking, we rolled the remaining dough out extra thin, and made some people crackers for the children to snack on. In Stern's story George and his family and friends eat up all the "dog" biscuits before Diggety, the dog, gets any.
We didn't want to take any chances.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
