Well I will tell you that my grandson (7 years old) loves to be in the kitchen and even though there are a lot things that you can do in the kitchen with them, the one thing that became an absolute hit was when I bought a Wolfgang Puck Rice Cooker from HSN.com.  I think to this day (almost two years later) we have never made anything but Macaroni & Cheese in it.  Makes great Mac & Cheese and is so easy to use that I can just stand near and watch him go!!!  He even had me buy another Wolfgang Puck Rice Cooker for his house so that he would never be without it to make his family Macaroni & Cheese.  Even my younger grandson (almost 4 years old) loves to help pour in the ingredients after I measure them and push the single button to turn it on.  I highly recommend this to anyone with young grandchildren.  You will not be disappointed and those memories are precious!

Nancy G, Here are some of my NO BAKE favorites.

CEREAL Parfait
INGREDIENTS:
CEREAL ANY TYPE
fresh fruit
whipped cream
DIRECTIONS:
Layer 1/2 cup fruit, 2 spoons of whipped cream,
and 2 spoons cereal. Repeat until glass is full.

YOGURT COOKIE FREEZE
INGREDIENTS:
vanilla waffers, whipped cream and yogurt mixed together
DIRECTIONS:
Cover the bottom of a paper lined muffin pan with one vanilla wafer.
Add to this the whipped cream and yogurt mixture.
Top with another cookie and freeze until firm.

GRAHAM CRACKER PUDDING SANDWICHES
INGREDIENTS:
GRAHAM CRACKERS,
MILK,
PREPARED PUDDING,
PEANUT BUTTE
DIRECTIONS:
Break graham crackers apart and spread pudding over one and top with another.
Wrap and freeze until firm. May be frozen for up to one month.

POLAR BEAR CUPCAKES
INGREDIENTS:
12 prepared cupcakes any flavor
1 1/2 cups vanilla frosting
12 mini candy covered chocolate pieces = for the nose
24 mini candy covered pieces = for the eyes
12  10" lengths of red shoelace licorice
marshmallows = 24 mini and 6 large
DIRECTIONS:
Frost the cupcakes and top each with one large marshmallow (nose)
two mini marshmallows (ears)
Add the brown nose, blue eyes and red bow tie.
NOTE: I found it was less messy if they sat for about an hour to set up and easier to handly.

APPLE SMILES
INGREDIENTS:
apples cut into wedges, peanut butter
mini marshmallows the multi colored ones look really cute
DIRECTIONS:
Spread peanut butter onto one side of each apple wedge.
Using the marshmallows position "teeth" in place onto one of the apple wedges.
Top with another apple wedge so the peanut butter acts as cement for the marshmallow dentures.

RAISIN NUT COOKIES
INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup honey
10 graham crackers
DIRECTIONS:
Pour raisins, nuts and honey into a mixing bowl.

Add to the honey-nut muxture and mix well. Roll into balls and let sit for 1 hour.

You might begin have the kids help you measure and make jello pudding.  That is a quick, delicious dessert.
