Isn’t instagram amazing? I love that we can support other moms that we have never even met halfway around the world and get inspired by their creativity one squared photo at a time. I think all mom’s have this soft spot that resonates in us when we see something super awesome for kids whether it’s a playground, or a kiddie corner tucked away in a cafe or a bank, and worse if you’re on a romantic getaway that leaves you going “Aww honey we should’ve brought the kids!” It’s a sense that assures us we love being parents and that we would not give it up for the world. So you can understand why I couldn’t resist following this woman, @bugbeansmomma, on instagram after a photo she put up of an edible wave and surfboard popped up on my feed. Her blog is an embodiment of how creative and fun motherhood can be! Here she is to share with Babiekins, some of her favorite work along with some tips!
“Cowabunga” – Kitchen scissors will be your best friend, I find it easier to cut the bread first then add the inside ingredients, like this surf board.
“Frankenwhich”- Holidays make for an easy way to use and introduce fun plates
Banana Sushi – Remember a fun plate does not need to be a cool design, but making it fun and re imagining it. Banana, almond butter, raw honey and whole wheat.
“Angry Birds”- Try to use items that you normally wouldn’t put on your kids plates. Almonds and edamame might not usually appear on them but makes for a perfect healthy addition.
Mater – Try not to let “requests” stump you up.
