Earth Day

If you haven't already, be sure and check out other fantastic Earth Day lunches at the hop! This was the first time I've used food markers, and while the result was pleasing, I'm not so sure about the amount of blue dye it left on the kiddo's fingers and face. It washed off relatively easy from her face, but her fingers are a lovely light shade of blue. We did a bird feeder project today too. Messy, but fun!

Tread Lightly

I wish I would have had more time to do this and the other one I have planned before the Earth Day Hop, but it was just too soon for me. Besides, Earth Day is tomorrow and we'll be working on some fun projects to share for the occasion too. If you haven't already, be sure and browse through the wonderful posts in the hop too!

Bunny Bonanza

I felt so bad being so sick over the entire week of Easter and then some, that I had to squeeze out one more Easter bunny themed lunch before hanging up my hat and moving on. I'd still like to do a lunch with an egg chick or something of that nature, but I figure that can be an extension of spring, so we stuck with bunnies. I have to say I love the little spice container. What fun!

Hippity Hoppety

So, I'm starting my Easter lunches a bit late, but we've been rotating 'the sickness' around here again, and I've been doing as little as possible to get through the day it seems. Hopefully I can crank a few more out yet this week. I had all sorts of ideas.. now to execute!
