When I first thought about this week’s Discover and Explore theme I was sure I’d be sharing a Mother’s Day craft, but after some thought I decided I don’t want to ruin the surprise for the Buddies’ Mom. She’s awesome and reads regularly about what we’re up to, and she deserves a special Mother’s Day surprise just from her boys.
Instead I had a little fun collecting some healthy flower snacks for kids. Lovey has been very interested in helping prepare snacks lately, and she has always been artistic. We’re going to be working together to make some of these flower snacks soon.
I love that most of these snacks involve only a couple of ingredients and are very easy to put together. I hope you like them as much as I do.
