Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is April 22nd, 2008
Digging for worms with a spoon??? No problem, because these worms are gummies buried in pudding and cookie crumb dirt. Yum!

Dirt Cups
4 cups cold milk
1 package (4-serving size) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 tub (8 ounces) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
20 OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed, divided
10 paper or plastic cups (6 to 7 ounces) or dessert dishes
20 worm-shaped chewy fruit snacks

Prepare 1 package each (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Instant Pudding and JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding separately, with 2 cups each cold milk, as directed on packages. Let stand 5 minutes.

Gently stir 1/2 cup of Cool Whip Whipped Topping into each bowl of pudding. Finely crush 20 Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, then sprinkle 1 tablespoon into bottom of 8 (6-ounce) dessert cups. Top each with 1/4 cup vanilla pudding, 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs and 1/4 cup chocolate pudding. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cookie crumbs. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.

Insert 2 gummy worms into each dessert cup just before serving.

Makes 8 Oreo Sand and Dirt Cups.

Other Earth Day Ideas:

*Make round sugar cookies, and decorate them like the "earth" with royal icing. When it sets up, you can take them around to your neighbors.
*Make Chocolate No-Bake Cookies, but call them "Mudpie Cookies" today.
*Try these natural Earth Day Bars for a snack.
*Recycle an egg carton into a fun craft - like a caterpillar or ladybugs.
*Go on a nature walk with your kids, or a "trash treasure hunt" to pick up trash in your neighborhood.
*Teach your children about thing we can do to help keep our earth clean and, then, you can sing this song to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus"

Recycling In My Home
Recycling in my home goes round and round, round and round, round and round. Recycling in my home goes round and round, all through the day.
Tie up the papers and take them back, take them back, take them back. Tie up the papers and take them back, all through the day.
Crush the cans and take them back.....
Rinse the milk bottles and take them back....
Save the glass and take it back......
