Food for Thought.

 Have you ever come across a little fussy eater? It may be your own child or a friend or family member’s little one- but we all know the type! They are stubborn to the hilt and will often ‘not like’ food that they’ve never tried, simply because they don’t like the look of it!

Luckily, here at Crafty Monkey, we have the perfect solution to those dinner time blues- why not make them a funny face plate to add a little excitement to their difficult meal times?

The idea is that you paint facial features in whichever way you like, to make a face on the plate. The child can then embellish the features as they wish with their dinner. They can make hair from spaghetti, eyebrows from broccoli and even make the face spotty with peas! Endless fun at the dinner table!

We can’t guarantee that the risk of food ending up on the floor, the walls and on top of your head will be totally eliminated- but it’s certainly worth a try!

Did you know that the 10th of July is Teddy Bears Picnic day? At Crafty Monkey we were very pleased to hear this because we have lots of lovely bears just waiting to go for a picnic. Do you have a favourite bear? We couldn’t possibly choose ours as we love them all.

So will you be celebrating the picnic day? We would love to know. If you have made one of our bears or animals, why not share a picture on our Facebook page so we can see what they are up to and how they are enjoying life with you and most of all we would love to see your teddy bears enjoying their picnic.
