Cook With Your Kids - Sand Laddoo/Sand Balls
Caution: Not Edible!
The little one came up with this title! She says "Hey! how about you write a blog about our trip to the park?, Tell everyone that you don't need to waste your time near the stove...you can also cook with sand!"
She has been watching me create this blog, take pictures and talk about it ALL the time (or what seems like ALL the time to her). She is amused that I have got something else to do than nag her to stop watching TV, clean up, practice her music...yadda yadda...
We had an unusually warm and sunny day today. We went to the park for a little while and made "Sand Laddoos or Sand Balls". After a while, the laddoos became our ammunition and we threw them at imaginary enemy soldiers that were advancing to attack our fort. The other parents and kids at the park observing us, looked a bit amused. It's not often they see a parent making a fool of themselves and getting their hands in the sand and throwing sand balls around !
Well, anyway, a few more rounds on the swings and slides and then it was time to come home. An afternoon well spent. We brought a laddoo home as a keepsake.
It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind of life, that we often don't think about taking a break and having some real honest-to-goodness FUN! Sometimes it takes a child to remind us to do that.
So..... here's reminding everyone to take a breather and find your bit of sunshine - outside, in your loved ones, or in your inner child.
Have a Great Weekend!!
