Getting Creative

Looks like this change is going to push my creativity for the kids.  Instead of being lazy and giving the kids the bag of pretzels for a snack, I'm going to have to help them find something.  Not really a big deal, but definitely need to get a little creative to get them to think past pretzels as a snack.

Today we did Ants on a Log - celery, peanut butter, and raisins.  Each child ate 2 "logs".  While it proved quite messy, they both enjoyed something different. 

It will be nice, of course, after I go to the store and buy more veggies, to just send them to the fridge to grab a container of precut veggies.  And once I find some softer nuts, perhaps cashews, we can include those as well.  Looking forward to having an excuse to add some different types of foods into the rotation!
