To Do List: Berries & Cherries
It is a little known fact that March is the Berries & Cherries Month.
Why not spend the last day of March celebrating these wonderful fruits with the following activities:
Breakfast: French toast and berries is a no-brainer, turning them into sticks is sure to entertain your family. Lets face it, kids love finger foods, and with a recipe this easy - we love making them!
Storytime: Blueberries for Sal, by Viking Kestrel & Robert McCloskey (author of the beloved Boston based book, Make Way for Ducklings) is a classic. Chances are you already have it in your collection - this is the perfect occasion to re-read this time tested tale.
Lunch: When you're dealing with Berries & Cherries, you don't need fancy recipes to make food taste great. Your kids will love a classic peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich, and even more so when you pair it with a fresh berry lemonade.
Playtime: Listen, we're not saying that tie-dye is making a come-back... lets put that on the record! But we know for sure that this is an activity that everyone will love. Not only is Berry-Tie Dye fun, but its 100% green. So get in touch with your very distant past, pull out the rubber bands and show your kids how to tie-dye like a pro!
Dinner: Its important for your kids to experience new flavors. Try topping your regular grilled chicken dinner with berry salsa. Its an interesting twist on a basic meal, the flavors will delight the whole family.
Late-Night Cap: We all know the Cosmo - early Carrie Bradshaw, no need to say more. Try the Merry Berry Cosmo for a new flavor profile on the classic vodka beverage ... 4-inch heels not required!
