Traffic Stoplight Treat

Learning all the traffic and safety rules can get complicated, but teaching some traffic safety fundamentals to your students early will give them a leg up on understanding the rules of the road as passengers, pedestrians, and future drivers.

One of the most fun concepts to teach young children is that of the stoplight. Red, yellow, and green lights not only drive home basic colors but also the important, associated meanings of stop, caution, and go. What better way to teach children about this traffic safety instrument than through easy, tasty treats? We’re thrilled to introduce the Traffic Stoplight Treat, an easy, little dessert that kids can make themselves!

How to make Traffic Stoplight Treat

Taste buds say go

We suggest using regular M&M’S, but we only had Peanut M&M’S at the office, which are pictured in our example. We made do all the same. Enjoy!
