Today my son’s nursery were having a little farewell party for the year. Just like his mum he likes to party so I thought we had better make some healthy snacks. I couldn’t very well send him with a packet of crisps could I….reputation and all that! So in true competitive mummy style I wanted to make something a little different. I thought of cutting out shapes of food then voila it hit “why not use cookie cutters?” I bought some watermelon and cantaloupe (aka honeydew melon).
The watermelon worked perfectly, the cantaloupe not so great but still do-able certainly.
Here is a picture of my creation…..
Here’s where the story gets interesting though…….on the way to nursery whilst juggling the double pram, a little backpack, the container of vege sticks, the plate of melon stars and the dog I lost the battle and DROPPED THE MELON STARS!! I could have cried 😦 Serves me right for showing off I guess!
My son didn’t mind though as he still had a fab party and danced away with his little friends. Mental note…..transport everything in sealed plastic containers!
