I think I love to play with my food almost as much as my boys.
Was I made to be the mother of boys or what!?
With Alphabet Summer wrapping up and the school year about to begin I thought I’d let these last two posts be all about playing with your food. I know that once school starts it will be all about what’s quick and what’s filling. No sir. No more fun in this house.
You can certainly let the kids make their own octopus or cut them ahead of time. I cut these with a pair of kitchen shears. First, in half, then each “leg” in half until I had 8 legs. Then lay out the spread for them to create their own oceanic scene. I used grapes for seaweed, blueberries for bubbles, and crushed graham crackers for the sand.
The boys had fun gobbling these up and I had fun watching them until they finished, in record time I might add, and asked for more. Uh…maybe next time I’ll opt for some more oceanic props. Fishy crackers and apple sharks. Just for starters.
