R is for Red Velvet Cake, Raspberries and Red Vines. Abby’s class does a really fun activity as they are learning letters. Each child (whose parents sign up) brings a snack to share with the rest of the class on Fridays that starts with the letter of the week. We were assigned R so were able to come up with snacks to bring. The real fun part is you bring your snacks hidden so that no one knows what you have brought. Then, the class tries to guess. If they aren’t guessing it, the child who brought the snack is able to give hints. I love the idea. Maybe I like it because I love making food so much, and it gives me an excuse.
It wouldn’t be a Meaningful Mama moment unless I encouraged you to train your kids to help in the kitchen. We had to bake about 75 cupcakes for both Abby’s class and a baby shower I’m providing cupcakes for this weekend. It was a cupcake making factory around here.
