Cheese Toastie, crocodile craft
How do you spent your quality time over the school holidays with your kids? Apart from museums hopping, a visit to the zoo and probably 'cooling-off' at the Changi airport on Saturday (to escape from the heat), I did a crocodile craft together with my son on other days. Thanks to Justina Tey who shared her beautiful handicraft here http://makingmum.blogspot.sg/2011/09/thinking-thursdays-if-you-see-crocodile.html. My boy painted all green with very fine paint brush that I did not realise it until he complained of tiredness after completing his 'big' project. On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised that he did a very meticulous job! The rest of the details were done by myself and I too made a mistake by painting the mouth red first before affixing its sharp teeth! Needless to say, we had to paint it over again ;P The end result was satisfying and my boy was telling me "It is a cross crocodile!". That is title of storybook which he borrowed from the library not once but many times.
Today we had a simple lunch - pan-fried emmental cheese toastie, a hardboiled egg, cherry tomatoes and blanched fine french bean. Since the start of his school holidays, I did not specially prepare a bento similar lunch for him and hence, did not blog about it.
