#6 Garden Party
Last week my oldest turned five. I don't even like saying that. Five means kindergarten and independence. It means I have to give up control of several aspects of her daily life and hope that someone else (teachers, friends, etc.) is looking after my baby with as much care and love as I would. That makes me nervous. The last thing I wanted to do was celebrate this milestone. But who am I to deny a kid a birthday party? So we threw a garden party because her birthday conveniently falls in early spring when a garden party is perfectly appropriate. Here's a look at what we did.
It was a great party!
A good friend of mine, with whom we have regular playdates, suggested that we take advantage of the spring weather and go park hopping one day. We did and it was a lot of fun!
#4 Make individual pizza into shapes.
With another Valentine's day coming up, I felt a little inspired to get creative with my pizza routine. We frequently make homemade pizza. Everyone has different tastes and preferrences so its a whole lot easier to make our own so that everyone can have what they like. I decided to make pizza hearts this time.
#3 Put things in your pancake/waffle batter.
Things like blueberries, chocolate chips, banana slices... you know, whatever.
And while you're at it, why not make your pancakes into fun shapes?

#1 Cut your veggies into fun shapes. The kids will love it.
This could also work with potatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, or any other solid, slicable veggie you can find. Yes, slicable. I said it.
