What you need for one piece of sweet bear toast:
1 slice of bread
1 teaspoon of sugar
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
Toast the bread.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together. (For less sweet toast, use the cinnamon sugar mixture on two pieces of toast.)
Once the bread is toasted to your child’s liking, spread the butter on the toast while the bread is still hot.
Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture over the toast.
Slice the banana into circles; you’ll need three per toast. Let your child place the bananas on the toast - one for the bear’s nose and one for each ear.
Have your child place the raisins – one for each eye and one for the nose.
Enjoy this delicious, sweet bear toast treat!
Pro Tip: Encourage your child to think how he/she might make other animals out of toast with a few additional ingredients.
