My daughter said recently: “Mom, why won’t we make a turkey with all the fruits you have just bought! You can then put it on your blog”. I laughed for quite a while and then I told her that we would make it, of course. I let her chose the fruits. She wanted to arrange them in a rainbow, well, we were close:)
My daughter doesn’t like monsters, spooky and scary characters, she rather prefers princess’ stories or even real life documentaries. But, in this period of Halloween, she can hear all the kids around her talking ghosts, bats, witches etc. So I have decided to make her a ‘bats and ghosts’ dessert.
While I was shopping a few weeks ago, I came across candy eyeballs and I thought that I might use them to make some funny Halloween party food. At that time, I had no idea yet what I was going to make with them…
During our holidays this year, we happened to see a lot of swans. Both white ones and black. They were really gorgeous. One day, we were at the lake admiring the sun preparing to sunset. We spotted a swan family with two little ones…
This ‘sunflower’ project started at my daughter’s school. All kids in her class discovered different kinds of seeds and learned how they grew. They were asked to select seeds they liked and then planted them in small plastic cups. This gardening adventure inspired me to make a little surprise for my daughter. One day I prepared a peach and blackberry sunflower for her dessert:)
Have your kids already kept a caterpillar home? How did you deal with that? My daughter found a caterpillar in our garden and wanted to keep it in her room. I said she could keep it, but it had to stay in her playhouse back in our the garden. I didn’t like the idea of a caterpillar sneaking in and visiting our house, grr.. and preferred to make her a funny caterpillar for her dessert!
We have just picked up some fresh raspberries from my parents’ garden. They were so sweet and still warm: delicious! When we returned home, we made cute little flowers with raspberries and blueberries in the center – yummy!
All little girls are princesses and my daughter is no exception – all moms & dads know what I mean:) So I made a cute raspberry castle for a little princess – can be also for a prince (!) – all edible and healthy! Moreover, it is an ice palace, perfect for hot summer days.
Someone had a great time yesterday eating delicious strawberry pops!
I love homemade Popsicle made of fresh fruits and yogurt. It is a great and healthy alternative for an ice cream, especially for kids dying for frozen treats during summer time! This time I have added a bit of agave syrup, it was really delicious!
During the last few weeks before start of school summer vacation, my daughter’s favorite subject at school was Paris and Eiffel Tower. There was a story about a little girl and her adventures in Paris, a song about Paris, crafts and drawings.
Talking a lot about France, Paris and Eiffel Tower with my daughter, I got inspired to make her this edible Eiffel Tower dessert. It is so simple to make with just a few different fruits, and it made her so happy! Try it too with your kids and let them discover the world:)
