Yesssss! We made it to Friday! I made a froggy lunch for my Bigs, to round out Pond Week.
Oddly enough, the kids are learning about turtles tomorrow (had a turtle lunch today) and learned about frogs today. I made a googly eyed PB&J frog. He’s sitting like a boss upon his crusty lilly pad. I decorated his pad with a few flower sprinkles, affixed with PB glue. I also packed grapes, honey wheat pretzels, and some marshmallows “flies” for dessert.
My younger son, Smalls, loves animal noises. I think most kids (smaller, in particular) do. He loves yelling “moo” when he sees cows, “noo-nee-noo-nee-noooo” when he sees a rooster, “wah-wah” when he sees a “kree-krat” [kitty cat], and “ribbit” when he sees….a turtle? Yes. In our house, for now, “ribbit” goes with both frogs and turtles, according to Smalls. Just as he’ll answer with “ham”, every time you ask him what is in his mouth, he’ll answer with “ribbit” when you ask him what a turtle says.
But yesterday was actual frog day in Bigs’ class. Not the turtles that can be confused with frogs.
I made a frog-shaped PB&J, and let him sit on his crust branches. I also packed banana chips, dried cranberries, red grapes, and for dessert – a gummy worm. Frogs like worms. I think.
Have a wonderful day,
Ahem! AHEM! ‘Scuse me. I had to clear a frog in my throat.
Today, I made a frog themed lunch for my Bigs!
We are in full Spring mode now! It’s so renewing, this time of year. I did a frog-shaped PB&J (not-so-pretty crusts added back in after picture taken), corn off the cob, a little fruit salad of clementines and blueberries, and a little pudding snack (which I normally don’t do).
Have a froggy day!
