One of the things we’re focusing on in our house this month is the fact that not everyone enjoys the good food my kids get to eat every day – and that there are simple ways to make a difference!
My kids are young (6, 4, 3, and 1 month old), but there are easy things to do even with this age group. With a one-month-old, we’re keeping it simple: donating to our local food pantry, talking about the importance of not wasting food (something they understand better after growing a garden this summer and seeing how long it takes for food to grow!), and use the color orange to keep the topic present in your home!
Here are a few orange-themed crafts you might want to try with your kids:
- Decorate pumpkins with stickers or Sharpie pens – you can cut the peel off afterwards and cook and eat it!
- Decorate pumpkin cut-outs
- Make orange play dough – here’s our favorite play dough recipe!\
- Add pumpkin or summer squash to some of your favorite recipes. We made lasagna with pumpkin added to the red sauce on Wednesday, and it was delicious!
