Butterflies and ladybirds

I had planned to post this yesterday, however with work, yoga, work and  monkeyboy (new nickname for the wee man due to his appetite for bananas and love of climbing) waking up and not setting until well after midnight I kind of ran out of time, so here goes take two!

I decided to pack a special snack in munchkins lunch bag yesterday, something I had seen on Pintrest a while ago and been wanting to try.  It may not have been the best day to try it out though as we all slept a bit longer than we should have, hubby had to rush off for a meeting while I was trying to get lunchbags, kids and myself organised while time was ticking away. I wanted it to be a surprise so had to get her upstairs  while creating it and then taking a couple of pictures of it to be able to show the world (i.e you!).  Fortunately munchkin was on her best behaviour and got herself ready while I got it sorted. The plastic food bag I had wasn’t the best, as I would have preferred it to be clear, but it was the only square one I had that didn’t have any printing on it.

Snack butterfly Anyway,  munchkin loved her snack butterfly,  but I thought I’d include the  link to the original picture I had seen that was my inspiration, as the photo I managed to take isn’t great. She actually requested it again today, but this time it was filled with cucumber and grapes, and no crackers as yesterday. I have a feeling these will feature in her lunch bag a lot from now on  🙂

Speaking of Pintrest, I added a photo there the other day of a great idea for a kids party that I saw when attending a party recently – KitKat bars with Smarties ‘glued’ onto them!

KitKat with Smarties So pretty with the coordinated colours! The kids LOVED them and the plate was emptied in no time. I’m definitely going to try these out as soon as I get a good opportunity.

We also discovered a little visitor in the kitchen yesterday – a   ladybird seemed to have stranded on the plate of a plantpot and kept walking round and round it.

The poor thing must have got all dizzy and didn’t know where else to go, so we had to take the plate outside to release it back into the wild.
