Here are two thanksgiving themed lunch and snack boxes that I made for the girl.
#28: Gobble, gobble, gobble!
I made this strawberry & ham sandwich turkey with slices of kiwi fruits snack for the girl last Friday. The sandwich design comes from “Cute Food for Kids“. This is really easy to create, using very few tools and ingredients.
#29: Count our blessings.
The turkeys are made of quail eggs and pieces of carrot and celery strips. They were all last min creation that I made this morning. I wish i had planned a head and had enough time to trim the carrot and celery to correct proportion, these turkeys look like they are malnourished with those fans! LOL.
For the past few months, we have been talking to the kids about counting our blessings. We hope the kids (and ourselves too!) learn to be more grateful and appreciative of the people and things around us, learn to embrace a less-is-more philosophy and continue to develop empathy and gain a better appreciation of other people’s needs. This is year I especially want to focus on what is special about our lives that we often take for granted and try to count my blessings at a more regular basis.
I’m ending this post with a few quotes that I like…
“Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.” ~ Bob Talbert
“Life holds so many simple blessings, each day bringing its own individual wonder.” ~ John McLeod
“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around. ” ~ Willie Nelson
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
