Playing With Our Food

Cousins food prep team...

These little cuties played with their food and made black olive penguins (messy and yummy)!  If you know a kid who likes black olives, this is the best treat ever!

Earlier today we happened upon this delightful little tree house made by Brock Davis.

Since we were already having fun making mini-veggie sculptures, the kids tried their hands at a broccoli forest of their own…  We made our houses out of scraps of paper.  Everyone was too hungry to spend time building wooden ones!

Some of the kids ate the broccoli.  Others just played.  It was all good.

    • Yes! We love Blokus, too. I think we got it last Christmas. Your family might also like Quirkle. It’s really a beautiful game with colorful wooden tiles. I think if we ever get tired of playing it, I might make it into an art project. 🙂

  1. That is fantastic! I love the mini-broccoli tree-house community, it’s very cute! I don’t think I could pay my kids to actually EAT broccoli but at this point I would take having them TOUCH broccoli as a win 😉 Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks, Heather! Truth be known, most of our broccoli forest is still standing, and not eaten. I agree, though – at least the kids have some pleasant memories associated with the vegetable! 🙂

  2. the penguins are super cute! and i love your tree house collective! i love it when kids are involved in food prep. thanks xxx
