Rainbow connection

I've been hosting a lot of playdates recently, mostly because the Kid does better one and one and for the Baby, his friends are all getting ready to split for kindergarten so their time together is short.

When the kids come over it's all about play time - so I try to make up a fun snack that they can eat quickly and have fun with - but then go right back to playing Legos.

A while ago the I had the boys write down all the foods they could think of - according to color. It was a fun exercise, and I saved the list just for a use like this. Of course I ended leaving out a lot of them from the tray because lord knows the kids aren't going to touch purple eggplant during a playdate. I mean, I was wishin' with the spinach as it was. (No one touched it.)

The kids who came over thought it was so much fun, and they tried a lot of new things they wouldn't have otherwise!

That's a wonderful idea for playdate snacks! I'm going to have to use that this afternoon when Kidlet's friends come over and are of course starving :D

So colorful. I would imagine that the kids loved it very much.
