Snax Box # 085 Flowery Cheese

 Lil Prince Snack Box

This year I need to prepare two snack box for the kids and sometimes I just ran out of ideas.  I have not been so hardworking lately.  Only on weekends, when I have more time to think and plan for their food box the next day.  Last week, we went to Jusco to buy some groceries and since I bought some GREENs, I packed it for lil prince snack box.  I boiled the broccoli and cut a few pieces of cucumber.  Added some 'cheese dip' (in the red food cup) for him to eat together with the veggies.  We bought some cheese cake and I cut them into flower shape and decorated it with stars.
Lil Princess Snack Box
For lil princess snack box, I only gave her some cheese cake, honey stars and biscuits.  Both of them also had fruits for desserts.  I always like to pack fruits in my kids snack box.  Added a small colourful marshmallow for lil princess too.

Both of them came back with an empty box yesterday!  Really worth the effort.  I always have the satisfaction ('moon chuk kam' - in cantonese) when my kids ate all the food that I prepared for them.  I felt that it's such a big achievement for me ^__^ .  How about you?  Do you feel the same too?

Vege Painting with Lady Fingers

I was cooking curry with some lady fingers last weekend.  While chopping the heads of the lady fingers, I thought it would be nice to let the kids have some fun with vege paintings.  At least this time round I don't have to waste so much of the vegetables.  I used to buy a whole lady fingers, cut them into half and use it for vege painting.  
I use some crayola paint and let the kids have some fun painting with the top of the lady fingers.  We don't normally do paintings at home as it was a bit messy.  However, after I have used the crayola paint, I find it easy to clean as compared to other paints.  We don't even have to use soap to wash away the paint.   Although it was a little pricey but it saves me a lot of hassle cleaning up.
 My lil prince had lots of fun painting and as for lil princess, she was just messing around with the paint.  This activity sure keeps both of them occupied for some time.  We hope to do more of these activities at home in future :P.  One of my new year resolution this year was to have more Play N Learn activities at home for the kids.  Hopefully I will have the time to do that *keeping my fingers cross* ^__^.

Melaka River Cruise Again

We started of our school holidays with our Melaka Trip.  This year we actually went there twice.  Thanks to Matta Fair for the great offer.  Whenever we are in Melaka, we will not miss the Melaka River Cruise.  I just loved the feeling of touring Melaka in the river cruise and with the kids around, they were so excited to sit on a boat! 

We paid RM10 per adult and RM5 for lil prince where as lil princess get to ride for free :).    Here are some photos that I managed to snap while on the boat.  I was busy admiring the surroundings and also listening to the briefing they gave on the cruise.  Although this was not the first time we took the river cruise, somehow, we still enjoyed it to the max!

The weather was just nice too, not too sunny and slightly cloudy.  

We will definately be back for more river cruise experience.   I know it's the same river but we never get bored!

Snax Box # 084 - Elephant and Marie D Cat

I have been really busy ever since the school started this year.  I am already looking forward for the next school holiday, can you imagine that?  I think the upcoming holidays will be the CNY break, which is just a month away.  Every morning was a rush and this year since both my kids are going to school in the morning, I need to wake up early to get them ready.  Didn't really have time to make nice food box for the kids.  At night when I've put the kids to sleep, I can hardly keep my eyes open.  Gosh!  I must be aging, guess its time for me to look for some supplements to keep up with the energy.  Didn't have time to visit other mummy blogs too.  Must catch up again with you guys this weekend!

This year, I need to prepare two snack boxes, one for lil prince and the other for lil princess.  I gave lil princess a smaller food box as I'm not sure how much she will eat in school.  For the first day, here's what I had prepared for her.
I gave her bread with cheese and some fruits (oranges and strawberries)
For lil prince I made an elephant bread with cheese, a car full of biscuits and some crab meat.  I had a strawberry food cup to house my lovely red strawberry.  It just fit perfectly.  Gee...I love this food cup the most among all my other food cups.
Here are the two snack box for my two angels. Both of them came back with an empty box!

Snax Box # 082 Back to School with D Birds

Happy New Year! 

I've been away for almost 10 days and it was really a fruitful holidays for us as we get to spend quality time with our kids.  It was our year end break.  Sorry for not visiting your blogs and I'm sure I have miss a lot of good post!  Don't worry, I'll catch up soon.  Hope all of you had a great holidays!  I do miss the school holidays.

We were getting ready for my lil prince first day of school.  He is a big fan of Angry Bird and this year, we got him an AB bag and AB pencil box.  To follow the theme for his first day,  I made him his favourite character....the Angry Birds with cheese.  At the bottom of the cheese was wholemeal bread with ham.  I used some seaweed for the eye brows and the tail.  I put a dab of tomato sauce on the cheeks ^__^.

The other two side dishes were teddy bears biscuits and water melons.  Dessert was only a heart shaped marshmallow.

How was your kids first day at school?
