Since Robyn's favorite foods are fruits, we decided to let the produce produce a lot of our birthday fun.
|We sent fruit skewers to school for a birthday treat. No allergens to worry about and a nice break from the steady stream of sugar we shared with her classroom at the Valentine's Party a day earlier.|
While Robyn was out with Daddy for breakfast, Amber and Katie helped decorate for the day by making fruity balloon garlands.
We also had fun cutting out pictures from seed catalogs to make fruit-themed collages and tried to name as many fruits as we could. My favorite, though, was playing k'nex with grapes and toothpicks. I had been scratching my brain trying to think of something hands-on and creative to do with fruit and a couple of nights before Robyn's birthday I was up feeding Matthew and this idea suddenly hit me. I'm pretty sure it was inspiration. Especially with a lego-loving dad, grape construction ended up being a blast.
