Today's Story is.... The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle
G loves this story, especially when the grouchy ladybug says.. Hey you want to fight!
I can't wait to use it to really help him with telling time.. at 3 he realizes it changes but not really any other concept.
Onto his lunch
The ladybug is made from a goldfish bread (didn't have any rounds) with the tail cut off. Cheese wings, I used a straw to cut the holes :). The eyes are provolone cheese with colored spots. The ladybug is on lettuce to represent the leaves he sits on. G already told me he would not be eating the salad... a mom can try right.. In the cups he has aphid carrots, and cheese (ok circles), mandarin oranges, some ham and gummy bugs..
of course juice and yogurt too.
