As it turns out, we've done a lot of school with our food the past little bit.
We had scrambled eggs for dinner. Monkey loves to crack the eggs, so I have have him break them into a small bowl, which we check for shells. Then he pours them into the big bowl and we count them.
Today, we used the letter cookies we made over the weekend to practice blending. Once he gave it a shot he got to eat the letters. What's not to love? We're working our way toward that first Bob Book, so we were eating T, M, S, and A, and specifically practicing blends and words he'll need to read the first little book.
Then, after dinner, I got out my fondant toys and was playing around. Of course, Monkey had to do "fondant class" with me. We had a good time.
Here is my fondant inspiration for the evening:
Rose and cala lilies
There's a definite diference between my creations and my inspiration, but hey, I haven't even finished the class yet, so I'm still willing to cut myself a little slack. And I learned a bit on each one. I did the pumpkin last, and I'm happy with how it turned out. Monkey put some of his creations on the plate to dry as well, which is awesome.
