Monkeys and Rabbits Loop the Loop



There are animal crackers...

...and "Animal Crackers."

In case you missed it, and I did, yesterday was National Animal Crackers Day. I always enjoy a sweet treat, especially one that has such happy memories of childhood. I can't remember the last time I had an animal cracker -- or watched "Animal Crackers," but they both hold wonderful fun memories. While poking around pinterest I found many recipes for home made animal crackers. Have any of the terrific bakers in Buttercupland made them? I think it would be a fun project with children and grandchildren. 



Sweet wishes for animal cracker and cupcake dreams!

I loved these as a kid, but I can't believe how expensive they are now!

I used to love Animal Crackers when I was a child. Sadly you can't get them over here.

Animal crackers are a lot of fun. Strange I hadn't thought to get some for my grandchildren in quite awhile. I remember my own children used to love having their own little box to carry around with them.
Hope your Friday is a fantastic one!

I eat these as snacks because they are fairly low in sugar! I can remember carrying around the little box with the string handle when I was little.
I hope you enjoy every minute of your weekend!
