I think if food is inviting, children will be more apt to try it. Whether that means serving it a different way (in a mug, on a stick, etc) or "fancy-ing" it up with a face or arranging it in a special way.
After breakfast, we suited up and headed out. It was C-O-L-D. Even in the sun, that wind was chilly! The girls had fun walking in the snow, making snow angels, touching the snow and we even made a little snowman. Of course, we had to have some hot chocolate when we came in. :)
Sweet Tortilla Snowflakes
Supplies needed: clean pair of scissors, cookie sheets, brush for oil, sifter for sugar
What to do:
1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Warm the tortillas (about 15 seconds) in the microwave to make them easier to fold and so they won't crack. I didn't have to do this with my tortillas. Maybe it's because they were kept in the refrigerator.
4. Using clean scissors, cut triangle, circles, or squares out of the edges, as if you were making paper snowflakes.
6. Lightly brush the tops of the snowflakes with vegetable oil.
7. Bake them until lightly browned and crisp (about 4 minutes). You can bake them a few minutes longer, if you want a crispier snowflake, but keep an eye on them.
9. For an extra sparkly effect, you can sprinkle on a bit of edible glitter.
I'd love to know if you try these out for yourself!
