Making Food Fun for Kids
While we have been on the topic of making food fun for kids, I loved that article: http://www.today.com/moms/fun-food-cool-plates-tu…
I cannot being that imaginative. Since I have worked from home, I haven't made food or mealtimes as fun as I use to. When I wasn't working my focus was on children and home, now it's on work and making money. Kind of sad, eh? Anyone else have that problem?
As I thought more about what I have done in the past when my older children were little, I thought of the little things we did to make meals and snacking a fun part of the day:
Veggies and dip — who doesn't like to dip?
Chocolate chip pancakes instead of the same old same old
Sandwich cut outs with cookie cutters
Picnics under the table or outside
Backwards days — eat dessert first or supper at breakfast type of thing. I think we only did the dessert first.
Indoor cookouts (we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over the stove with parental supervision of course!)
Those are just a few that came to mind as I sat and thought more about it.
