Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The First Layer.

The first thing you have to do is decide on how many crackers you are going to eat.

Now you can spread the butter in a nice thick layer over the crackers.

Make sure you have lots of butter if you are American, it will help dilute the Vegemite.

Once you have spread your butter you can move on to the next step!

Step 2: The Piece of Goodness!

Now it is time to add the Vegemite.

If you are an American then take note of the amount in the first photo, this is about as much as most of you guys can handle - it is quite strong.

If you are from anywhere else follow the second picture ad get ready for a blast of taste!

Now you have chosen your amount go ahead and slather that stuff on! (I call it "stuff" because I'm even unsure if it is food...)

Once you have finished putting the Vegemite on the crackers you can go ahead and lick the knife and enjoy your snack!
