Did you know that even two tablespoons of peanut butter is packed with nutrition? Peanut butter is essential in a vegetarian's diet because of the high amounts of protein and cholesterol. Peanut butter has been loved by the world for centuries. There are a few ways to celebrate this fun and un-official holiday in November for a favorite food.
Amuse kids by giving a dog peanut butter. Like humans, the peanut butter will stick to the top of the dog's palate(top portion of the mouth), making the dog lap at it for a while.
Create a bird feeder with peanut butter. Use any flat surface item, for example cardboard or a small wood piece. Cover the surface with peanut butter. Spread or scatter birdseed onto the peanut butter and leave it somewhere in your yard.
Include kids in making peanut butter cookies on the weekends or make your own peanut butter. Please be advised that all actual oven or non-kid friendly work should be handled by an adult.
Dance to the "Peanut Butter Jelly" song. Make a show out of it and video record kids dancing and singing to the video.
Take the family to the zoo. If possible, feed the elephants carrots and peanuts. Call your local zoo if visitors are allowed to feed the animals; the food is provided by the zoo staff.
Research the different ways peanut butter is used in food recipes. While it's hard to believe, there's several foods that you may be consuming that you never thought had peanut butter in them.
