It is still summer time here in the US. Which means, no school. Which means bored kids at home. Which means as a mom you've got to do something about it. Which means, doing real fun stuff to try to keep them away from Dora and Mickey!
Here's my project to keep my daughter busy for a few mins. After a few mins....I don't know. But, for now, at least these few mins will last a while! Even though the actual work time here is say, 10 mins, the excitement and dancing around to do this is 30 mins and then once this is done, the happiness and calling everyone she knows to let them know that she made this - another 45 mins! And then eating it up proudly - about 10 mins. That's enough time on my hands that I welcome! Wait..not really. I get the clean up part and that takes all of it away! LOL!
A fun hands on kitchen project for the kids - with adult help only for the cutting with knives part!
Pick your favorite fruits - watermelons, grapes, strawberries, cantaloupes, blueberries etc - anything that can go on a stick.
Let your kids use cookie cutters and cut them into cute shapes.
And then skew them on sticks.
Make as many as you want.
Just to show that someone cannot even reach the counter yet...
Some more here...mix and match as you want - its all fun here!
You can even take this further by dipping them in chocolate and making a chocolate dipped bouquet.
Place the skewers upright in a cup or bowl or a flower vase of the right size.
And let them just be proud of their creations!
Enjoy! Peace Out!
