The theme today is Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs/Children's Literature. Sadly, I've never read this book. I want to get it and read it with the kids because it seems like a lot of fun. Since I wasn't familiar with that book I decided to go with one of our family favorites- The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
We made Rice Krispy treat caterpillars. I wanted them to be green, but it didn't quite turn out like I had imagined! Along with the very hungry caterpillar we ate: 1 apple, 2 pears, 3 plums, 4 strawberries, 5 oranges and 1 nice green leaf.
All of this fruit has been tried and liked in the past, but Scotty had forgotten and was pretty hesitant about some of them. But he tried everything- which is one of the many reasons why I love doing muffin tin Monday! Both kids ate everything except the strawberries and plums. They both had seconds of the nice green leaf!
And based on the caterpillar carnage and these big smiles, I'd say it was a success today!
