I think I mentioned that Sweet Girl was star student a week ago and that her class requested fruit kabobs as the special snack she brings in. Well, here they are - 20 fruit kabobs for Sweet Girls second grade class. I asked her what she did with the extras and she told me she shared them with her kindergarten and first grade teachers. I thought that was sweet, but when I asked if her second grade teacher (her current teacher) had one she said no...hmm why I asked. "I forgot to give her one." That's Sweet Girl for you.
I have decided to have fun with the kids lunches this year instead of dreading them like I have in the past. I was inspired by some other blogs I follow. Two good ones are 360 Lunch Box and another lunch . These blogs are where I got the idea to make the fruit kabobs that my children look forward to everyday (pressure) they get very upset if I skip a day. I also have made them the shaped eggs and some cute fruit cut outs with mini shaped cutters. It has become a lot of fun. I am also trying to add more homemade snacks to their lunches. I enjoy doing this because ...well its fun, but also I can make them some healthier snack options. My favorite part is hearing about their lunch when they come home - they really do appreciate the extra effort.
I think I should send a fruit kabob in for Second Grade teacher - don't you?
