Summer Reading Food Adventures
I am so happy to be here guest posting for Julie today, she has such great recipes and wonderful tips!
This year our library's summer reading program theme is "Reading is SO Delicious", and my children were thrilled with it, because some of their favorite food adventures are of the literary kind.
One of our most recent adventures took us to the beach with The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss, where we had a hot dog roast and marshmallow toast just like the Sneetches.
Beef Wellington after reading The Duchess Bakes a Cake by Virginia Kahl. (We also upped the adventure on this one by going to dinner at Medieval Times as well.)
delicious meal of butterflies, ladybugs, banana slugs, robin sandwiches, and rainbow fruit pizza.
oatcakes and potato farls.
Harold and his purple crayon.
snowman pizza and had a paper snowball fight.
castle and magical trees.
Mr. McGregor's garden.
|We had blackberries, peas, a "goldfish", green beans, fried potatoes, and dried currants.|
To me healthy eating and reading are two of the most important things for a child, so why not combine them, and have your own food adventure?!
What books are on your summer reading list? How could you turn them into a Food Adventure?
