I feel very lucky on a daily basis for many reasons, but one major reason is that I live one block away from my sister, brother in law and their two kids! It has almost been 1 year since we moved into our house and we have loved that we can walk to each others homes, the girls can ride their bikes together, or we can just get together to play at any moment….there is nothing better than living so close to family. I feel really blessed because our kids are going to grow up as cousins and best friends…what more could we ask for!
Sophie and Marlie get out of school early on tuesdays, so we have decided to make this food and craft day through the month of October and this will probably continue into November and December. Since I am a pastry chef and my sister is a graphic designer (crazygoodmama.com) and crafting genius, it was only natural that we teach our kids all about what we love. Sophie watches me and helps me bake all the time, but I really want her to have hands on fun and let her use her creativity and see what she comes up with.
There is absolutely nothing fancy about this recipe…actually there is no recipe! It is whatever you want it to be and that is the beauty of it. You can either use this as an excuse to clean out your pantry or you can make it a theme soup…Witches Stew is our Halloween version of this snack soup. The kids had so much fun and I know we will enjoy this stew throughout the week.
Ingredients we used:
marshmallows, pretzels, chocolate teddy grahams, gold fish, sea salt popcorn, honey nut cheerios and candy corn
Enjoy the holidays with your kids, grandkids, or your friends and let the creativity shine through!
