30 Days of Gratitude: 21

Gratitude today for Birthday planning and DIY. My eldest spent some time writing up a Birthday invitation, with my help. As I mentioned in a previous post, she is so focused on wanting to learn to write at the moment that when I asked her if she would like to make some Birthday invitations, she was so excited to do so. It would be too much for her to hand write each and every invitation, so she made up one which we then photo copied several times.

After this step, my eldest wrote in all of the details except the children’s names. We worked together on this as I pre-wrote out what details we needed to fill in. My daughter wrote everything on the invitation herself. 

My daughter and I have had some discussions about food for her party and the fact that many of her friends have food allergies (Dairy or Nuts). One of the ideas was some home made crackers which we made together this afternoon. My daughter really liked them but my youngest did not. I am thinking we could add some herbs for flavour?  Maybe a simple home-made dip would go well with plain flavoured crackers.

What was left over of the crackers I just put into one of my spare glass jars. 

My children and I had fun making these crackers and will definitely make them again. They are so quick and easy to make. I am keen to see how many days these last storage wise so I can hopefully make them a couple of days prior to the party.

  1. Wow her handwriting is really good its lovely she wants to practice (my son age 8 dislikes writing). The crackers look good, my children eat so many I must look into making some 😊

    1. My daughter is learning cursive at school (they teach cursive before print) however she is more comfortable writing in print. Her writing just took off all of a sudden.

      My children love to eat crackers as well, so I am hoping If I can tweak this recipe it may be to both of my children’s liking.
