Hey All!

If you’ve been following me for some time, I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Mo Willems and his amazing books. I’m thrilled to share he has a new beginning-reader series called Unlimited Squirrels! The series addresses a range of physical, emotional, and social development markers with fun creative stories and fantastic colorful illustrations.

These awesome books engage kids in the overall reading experience while also providing caregivers and educators with humorous and relatable conversation starters.

The books have an ensemble cast of Squirrels, acorns, and pop-in guests host a page-turning extravaganza! Each book features a funny, furry adventure AND bonus jokes, quirky quizzes, nutty fact formats, and so many squirrels!

We were lucky to get our hands on Unlimited Squirrels: I Lost My Tooth! It follows Zoom the Squirrel who has lost a front tooth. The Squirrels leap into action when they discover the missing tooth is a baby tooth!

How cute are these squirrels…

And these acorns! Love them!

I can’t wait to read this book to our little Logan, especially when he loses his first baby tooth. It’s going to be so much fun! Forget the tooth fairy, we’re all about the squirrels!

It came out in stores on October 2nd, 2018 and is recommended for ages 6 plus. To celebrate the release of the book I decided to make these fun DIY Squirrel Rice Krispies Treats. They are super easy to make and you can get the book and celebrate a lost tooth with these delicious and fun treats.

To make them you’ll need:

  • 1 Rice Krispies Treats Sheet (Pre-made or make your own.)
  • 1 of each of the following. One, Two, Three and Four Inch Circle Cookie Cutters
  • 2-3 Piping Tips
  • 1 Fondant Roller
  • 1 Fondant Scissors
  • Black and White Icing Tubes
  • 2 Couplers
  • Black and Chocolate Brown Fondant

First you cut out your circle Rice Krispies with your 4 inch circle cookie cutter.

Then you cut out the eyes using the round back of a piping tip. Shape some of the eyes in an oval shape. Use the 3 inch round cookie cutter to cut out the noses.

Use the fondant scissors to cut out the startled long eyebrows and mold them in a semi-circular shape with your hands. Let the black fondant pieces harden. Next you use the 2 inch round cookie cutter to cut out the round pieces for the ears from the chocolate brown fondant. Cut two circles for each treat.

Cut a large round piece of chocolate brown fondant that is slightly larger than your Rice Krispies treat piece. Drape the chocolate brown fondant over the Rice Krispies treat. Cut a small piece off the bottom of each of the ear circle pieces and mold them with your fingers to make them more oval shape.

Place two tooth picks on each side of the Rice Krispies head piece. Place the two ear pieces onto the tooth picks and add a line down the middle of the ear with your black icing.

Add your eyes, nose, and eyebrow fondant pieces to each treat. Lastly, use your black and white icing to draw on eyes and mouths if you don’t use the fondant pieces.

That’s it! You’re done and you’ve made yourself some cute Unlimited Squirrels inspired Rice Krispies treats.

Be sure to get yourself a copy of Unlimited Squirrels: I Lost My Tooth to enjoy with these treats with!

I hope you enjoy these treats and Unlimited Squirrels: I Lost My Tooth as much as I do!
