Snack Day and Crafts

Wednesday is Christian's last snack day at school. We talked about different options and I had him ready to make blueberry muffins (I even have the dry ingredients mixed and some of the wet ingredients measured) and cheese. He seemed okay with this until we went to our neighborhood Korean/Sushi place where he and Liam enjoyed Nori (dried Kelp sheets) and rice. Christian decided he wanted that for his snack day. We were just a few blocks from Fubon (a large Asian grocery store). So we went after dinner and picked up sushi rice, nori and a watermelon. I tried to explain to Christian that his friends at school may not be into the whole kelp scene, but he said that they should at least taste it. (Funny coming from someone who never wants to try new things).
I have the rice cooker and ingredients out in the car right now. If his teacher lets me, I can just make the rice in the class room and the nori sheets just have to get cut in half. We would just have to take the Watermelon to the kitchen to wack up. I am very curious to see how his class receives this. I know it would be a huge it at a Japanese or Korean preschool.
The boys also did some crafts today. We made a paper chain to count down to our camping trip right after school gets out and I got a little shoe box out from the sandals we bought Liam last week and I showed him how he could decorate it. He spent the day decorating it, ripping the decorations back off, parking his trains in it and all sorts of things.
Here is a layout I did today. Credits: Tangerine Dream by Lindsay Jane Designs at Scrapbook Bytes

I love the layout first. Now isn't it amazing how our children all think that the world is homogenus? They like something so of course everything else does and should too! I just hate it when they lose that innocence. Enjoy it,girl!

I love the paper chain idea for counting down. Totally gonna do that tomorrow with my oldest, because I'm tired of explaining how long a month is (when we're going on a trip)!

I'm interested to hear how the snack is received by the other kids. Isn't it amazing how when applied to other people, our kids listen to what we say? My son also says people should try new things but won't readily do so himself. Cute layout!

the layout is awesome, I think it's so great that he feels they should try it at least. lol. Maybe he will bring that attitude to his own things soon :)
