Every child loves to bring in a sweet treat to school to celebrate their special day. Before Spring Break I sent in a note to his teacher asking if I could send in cupcakes, a sweet-tooth favorite for the birthday boy. The note that came home was a bit disappointing. "We would love a birthday treat, but please send in something healthy." Humph... My thought, 'Come on! It is a Birthday!' But I polled Facebook friends for a healthy, yummy treat that would satisfy my Birthday Boy's Sweet Tooth. I'm all about eating, being, living healthy, admittedly, so I thought, "We'll make this work."
Fruit Kabobs, were the perfect solution! I bought a fresh pineapple, three cartons of strawberries and a bunch of grapes. I found some Easter marshmallows on sale that were perfectly spring-y. *C* loved the idea. Last night we cut, ordered and pierced. C was all smiles at this idea! And as an afterthought I realized this was much better then cupcakes. Something different and fun. I know the class will love them as they partake in a special treat for a special boy!
Happy Birthday, Dear *C*! I sure do love you.
