I think you should have a recipe for banana pops. First, peel the amount of bananas you want to eat. Then, cover them in honey. Then cover them in brown sugar. Afterwards, Put them in your freezer for 2 hours. Last, Enjoy.

Hi, Me and my sister were bored so we tried out a weird recipe. Luckily It worked out and was awsome! The recipe was:

2 cups of Chocolate chips
1 cup of cherios
1/3 cups of rice crispies
Teaspoon of melted butter
Stir, then freeze for half an hour!

We call it the Choco Delicioso!

To make pink meringues you need:
3 egg whites
1 and a half cups sugar
3 pinches of cream of tartar
a few drops of red food colouring
a mixing bowl
a mixer
a baking sheet
butter or margarine

To make pink meringues:
1. Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
2. Pour the egg whites into the mixing bowl.
3. Add cream of tartar to the eggs. Mix the ingredients in the bowl.
4. While mixing, add the sugar a little at a time. Mix until the paste turns into a whipped cream-like substance. Add food colouring while mixing.
5. Grease a baking pan with butter or margarine. Spoon out the mixture into mounds on the pan. Makes 24 meringues.
6. Put in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 mins.
7. Let cool on stove and enjoy!

Hi there, Joe, Shae, and Priscilla! Thanks for your recipes, they look great. The best part about them is that they all have something healthy in them, like bananas and different kinds of cereal, so we can eat them every day, right? Well, okay they have a lot of chocolate and sugar too, so probably we'll just have them as a treat. But it'll be one tasty treat! Send in more super snacks to Zmail with "RECIPE" in the subject line and we'll post them right here. We can't wait!

I challenge you to put an elastic band on your fingers and run around on rocks and see if you can keep your balance.

Make a domino system like you see in movies that show the effect of "Chain of Events".

ZOOM replies:
What's up, Tabitha, Josh, Ella, and Kimico? You came up with some funny challenges! But, um, what if we get stuck in the bucket? Or can't balance on the rocks? Or knock the dominoes down by accident? We'll have to be careful, but we'll master them eventually! Have you come across anything else that's tricky to do? Send a Zmail to us with "CHALLENGE" in the subject line and we'll challenge everyone to do them!

I want you to do a relay of bobbing for apples! I want you start at one line (in teams), run to the other, bob for an apple and carry it in your mouth back to the original line and put it in a basket, and then tag the other person in line, and they go and bob for an apple. Once all of them are gone your team wins!

Its called Find The Rythm. First you turn some music on, then find two pencils or something, then when the song starts you tap to rythm around the house with another player, then you count how many diffrent things they tapped on and whoever has the most wins!!!!!

ZOOM replies:
Greetings, Matthew, Sarah, and Bryanna. It's almost Halloween and what we really want are some spooky ghostly games. These are great ideas and we think we can turn them into great Halloween party games. Bobbing for apples is already perfect for fall. The "Guess What" game could be called "Gross What" if you just tell everyone those are squished eyeballs and mashed stomachs. Even "Find the Rhythm" will be scary if you use some spooky music! Looks like we're all set for our Halloween party, hope you can come! As always, feel free to send us more game ideas right here to Zmail, just be sure to write "GAMES" in the subject line.

I think you should do somthing like a lunch type menu and then people can follow it. Then they can fix it as a snack 4 them.

I know how to make the most AWSOME goop there ever was! All you need is some corn starch and some water. (And if you like you can add some food coloring.) All you gotta do is put some corn starch in a bowl. Then add some water. If it's too hard add more water. If its too wet add some more corn starch. Compare it to water and see how many things are differnt. Have fun!!!

You will need: gumdrops, toothpicks.
1. Push 3 toothpicks in the gumdrop. They must be in a triangle so the gumdrop stands.
2. Get another gumdrop and pick up another toothpick. Anchor the bottom legs together and build upward.
3. Keep building the shape. Every time toothpicks come together anchor it with a gumdrop.
4. Start with a triangele-shaped base of 15 gumdrops with a gumdrop on each end of the toothpick.

Hiya, Mackenzie, Christina, and Samantha! These are fun ideas for activities when you're bored or stuck inside. We love the lunch menu idea because we have SO many foods on our site in CafeZOOM and even more snacks here in Zmail. That menu could really come in handy. We could even put goop and gumdrop houses on the menu. Send in more activities we can do to Zmail with "PROJECT" in the subject line and we'll post them right here. Thanks!
