1 package instant Pudding mix, vanilla
2 cups cold Milk


Measure the milk; pour into a mixing bowl. Add the pudding mix. Using a wire whisk, hand orelectric mixer, beat for 2-3 minutes or until well mixed.
Teacher or other adult helpers should pour pudding into pudding cups or other serving containers (e.g. plastic cups). Refrigerate for 15 minutes or longer before serving.
ENRICHMENT ACTIVITY: Divide the students into different work groups. Each group could make a different flavor of pudding (e.g. chocolate, butterscotch, lemon, coconut, banana). Conduct some “taste tests” of the various puddings. Have the children discuss their favorite flavors.
ENRICHMENT ACTIVITY: Different toppings for the puddings could also be made available for the students to use. Consider sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, granola, graham cracker crumbs. Students could help prepare and assemble these toppings with adult supervision (e.g. assist children to slice the fruit with plastic knives).
