One of my tricks to make my daughter eat fruits and veggies is to sneak them into her meals somehow… It works really great each time! This time, I have made her some peach muffins, which she loved, although she doesn’t like peaches too much.
The baking soda and vinegar volcano is a great science activity for kids. You can do it any time, it is very simple, safe and inexpensive and the results are really amazing for the little eyes. Baking soda is alkaline and reacts with acids such as vinegar, releasing carbon dioxide (gas) and water. This little experiment allows you to introduce the concept of a chemical reaction to kids in a very funny way.
Toilet paper roll animals are great and inexpensive activity you can do with your kids almost any time and anywhere, even during holidays, when traveling. You don’t need to have sophisticated suppliers and you can always replace the colored paper with white sheet on which you can draw using markers. Discover what we have done, or rather my daughter has done…
If you have ever wondered how to make a paper fish with your kids, then you will find this simple origami a great fun! We did this one just because it’s summer time! My daughter is on holidays since a week and we just went to the beach for the first time this year. We did not see the fish in the water, unfortunately, there were too many waves to be able to spot one. But…
Summer time is great to prepare all kinds of healthy jams and juices for the cold winter days. One of my favorite is a homemade blackcurrant jam and it is about the time to make it now! My daughter simply loves the bread with butter and blackcurrant jam. Give it a try too!
There is nothing better than a refreshing fruity popsicle for the hot summer days. Healthy and cold they are a perfect way to sneak some fruits into the little tummies. My daughter loves them and what is really amazing, she even likes the pops made out of fruits she is normally reluctant to eat. So the fact that they are mixed, frozen and presented on the stick makes miracles:)
I have promised you last week that I would share my homemade My Little Pony birthday cake that I did for my daughter’s birthday and here it comes! It was the first time I was making cake decorations with sugar paste icing, but it turned out not so bad :) It was maybe not perfect, but I was quite proud with the result and my daughter loved it, which was the most important!
