W Is for Waffling Walrus

Snacks that start with W - Waffling Walrus

You don’t have to visit the zoo to plan a play date with this walrus!

He may have some scary-looking tusks, but our friendly walrus is coming to your breakfast table and he’s ready for some fun!

Made from delicious ingredients, this nutritious breakfast treat is bound to please even the most persnickety preschooler. And there’s no waffling about it—a tasty waffle, crunchy cereal, cream cheese, and some berries are always a winning combination.

And just like all our ABC Snacks, this waffling walrus is easy for little hands to make and yummy for little mouths to eat. Our young friend sure seemed to enjoy it!

So, what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time to invite a waffling walrus to your house for breakfast?

I love all of these ABC snacks! So cute plus bonus of having little teaching tips and most of them are easy enough to do on their own. We will definitely be making many of these.

I have a daughter with dyslexia. I have looked at all your books and would love to use all about reading. She is a slow reader and I read with her. We are a home school family. I was told to hold her back in second grade and I made the choice to homeschool. She didn’t need to be held back. The school was slow in helping her with her dyslexia.

I am a Nana homeschooling our Grandson with the help of Papa. Our youngest is 31. Anyways, I was really glad to see this website a while back and we have decided to use the reading/phonics program. He is very much into the reading and trying sounding out words. Thank you for making our life much easier.
