My 5 year old neice is coming to visit me tomorrow. Do you have any suggestions for fun, raw things I can fix her?

raw peanutbrittle, I do not know exactly how to make it, but kids love it

What types of equipment do you have?
I'd suggest one of more of the following:
her favorite fruits
the butter pecan (banana) ice cream
or: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2946&highlight=no-bake+cookies (scroll down the posts and you'll see the recipe)
http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5717&highlight=nuggets (scroll down to SweetGoddess' post for the recipe)
bananas sliced up and topped with almond butter and sprinkled with coconut flakes and raisins (opt.)
celery sticks with almond butter and raisins on top (ants on a log)

Fruit roll ups
or open the raw cook books and let her pick

Thanks for all your suggestions so far. To answer your question, Rawkinglocks, I have all the equipment: dehydrator, vitamix, champion and food processor.

Also, pouring smoothies into popsicle molds. I blend bananas, strawberries and spinach or lettuce ( not enough greens to discolor or to taste ) and pour into popsicle molds. My daughters friends love them and have no idea whats in them unless I tell. :p

Cucumbers, cherry tomatoes or plum tomatoes, carrots, raw dips, celery with raw almond butter and raisins, raw honey and raw almond butter on raw crackers, smoothies, fruit salad, raw cookies. Hope that helps a bit.
