The first day, or even the first week of camp however, can still be overwhelming. Make your kid's day extra special and pack them some fun goodies in their lunch bag.
Below, we've chosen treats that are delicious, fun, and are sure to put a smile on those little faces.
- Mini Sprinkle Cookies by Leah Nagel
These soft, chewy one-bite vanilla sprinkle cookies are easy to make and even easier to pop into your mouth repeatedly. Kids and adults alike will adore these tiny sprinkle cookies, which are the size of a large button. And if you want, you can use the recipe to make regular-size sprinkle cookies.
- Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats by Erin Grunstein
Between reading the story of Noah’s ark this weekend and celebrating the birthday of my rainbow-obsessed daughter, I had no choice but to make a rainbow dessert. I had this idea but wasn’t sure it would work - luckily, it exceeded my expectations!!
- Whole-Wheat Strawberry Corn Muffins by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen
These delicious muffins are packed with bright and fresh flavors of summer, and a great way to hang on to the sunshine all year long!
- Apple Pie Bars by Nechama Fiddle
- Fruit Leather by Chanie Nayman
My favorite fruits for this recipe are strawberries, mango, apricot, and kiwi. Mix and match as you please.
- Honey Mustard Pretzel Bits by Chanie Nayman
Who remembers the Snyders’ honey mustard and onion pretzels? Before they became dairy, they were an all-time camp favorite. A bag was not opened for more than two minutes before it was all done (despite the late night hour, or perhaps because of the late night hour!). I hope this recipe is as nostalgic for you as it was for me!
- Best-Ever Blueberry Muffins by Rivky Kleiman
These blueberry streusel muffins are moist and light, truly the best ever.
- Rocky Road Oatmeal Cookies by Faigy Grossmann
When Chanie asked me to write about oatmeal cookies this month, I was a bit stumped. Soon after starting this column, I came up with an oatmeal cookie that was really well received... So what could I do different this time? When I mentioned the assignment to my talented photographer Saraizel, her first reaction was “Rocky Road,” and I thought that was genius. The chocolate hides the whole wheat flour and oats, and which kid doesn’t love marshmallows? My requirements for this recipe were that it needed to be a one-bowl, no-mixer, no-margarine recipe. I’m happy to report that these are kid (and adult) approved!
