This was a fun project we did way back in February. We were learning about the Arabian desert in Story of the World volume 2. Snack this day was our own edible oases.
Crushed graham crackers for sand.
Blue sugar for water (put a couple drops of food coloring in a bag with sugar and smoosh it around.)
Palm trees made of Tootsie Rolls and cut up gum drops, glued together with peanut butter.
Complete with animal cracker camels.
