Rainbow: Fruit Parfaits and Cooking with Kids
One thing I like about summer is that you don't to rush through breakfast to get off to school. You can take your time and even get your kids involved in making it!
And that's what we're doing today...making fresh fruit yogurt parfaits, just perfect for summer, with the help of my boys.
To sincerely get my kids involved I purchased some kid friendly, and kid fun cutting utensils...
The butter knife we had on hand, of course. The crinkle cutter and lettuce knife were new.
I bought fruit from every color in the rainbow. Bountiful Baskets helped out with this. Have you been loving all the berries they've had too?
We set out cutting boards and I let them loose...well with close supervision. :)
The crinkle cutter was fun too, but didn't slice as well as the lettuce knife.
The butter knife...got forgotten. :) Poor butter knife.
I guided them to cut even pieces but didn't correct them when they didn't. It was all going to get smashed into the parfaits anyway.
They had a lot of fun and were ecstatic to be doing a job that I usually do. If only they felt that way about laundry and cleaning the bathroom. :)
here for the recipe.
Then dug in.
Be sure to make a stop at Kojodesigns for another rainbow project!
