Kids in the Kitchen 2014

This event happened a few weeks back ,but I have been busy living thus the post delay. This was our second year attending Kids in the Kitchen hosted by Junior League of Washington. It’s actually so well put together we will absolutely continue to attend annually.

This free event highlights wellness and movement for family’s with a focus on the children. The crafting tables had healthy food plates kids could assemble, recipe books that were compiled of recipe cards gathered during the event also a oversized coloring mural allowed children to draw their favorite fruits and vegetables from each season. Multiple sample stations with fresh juices and build your own trail mix to name a few. They had the cutest little obstacle course where the kids got a certificate upon completion. Liv still does her push ups after this exercise. The hockey team sport as well as the instructor led movement class rounded out a great day of healthy lifestyle activities. Literally on the way out the door I entered into a raffle and …. Wait for it…… I WON! This is a new phenomenon for me! Winning raffles that is but I gladly and graciously accepted my Whole Foods gift basket. If the edible goodies weren’t prize enough I also had a gift card included in my basket! Very Very Good Event!




We Love…. Crayons

So much so that Liv finds it very necessary to break each and every one of her crayons into tiny pieces so she can have “more”.
Crayon bits are everywhere ,and good thing I wasn’t quick to toss them out. While browsing through Pinterest I ran across a ton of cool ways to upcycle crayons into beautiful molds!

How exciting!
Liv and I gathered up all her crayon bits
Peeled off the labels
Pulled out our tiny rubber heart mold from ikea
Sprinkled glitter into each mold
( because girls love glitter!)
Then placed as many broken crayon pieces as we could into each mold
Meanwhile, the oven had heated up to 300 degrees
I placed the soon to be heart crayons in the oven for 15 minutes
Let them cool until they have hardened …..then TA DA
