To celebrate summer this year, my little gardeners threw a summer brunch for a few of their friends! Today I wanted to share with you what nine kids did in our backyard!! First we decided what to do…
“Orange you Glad It’s Summer?!” Themed Brunch
Yogurt Bar (different types of yogurt & toppings like granola, raisins, etc)
Homemade Blueberry Muffins
Homemade Lemon Cookies
Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice, Water & Tea
Paint with Oranges
Pick Orange Carrots in the garden
First we cut and dried oranges in the oven. The kids will use them to stamp orange paint on an art canvas.
We made goodie bags (and tested our orange paint stamping idea). I purchased white paper bags and stamped them with an orange half covered in paint. We filled them with a few goodies: orange water gun, orange pencil & eraser, mango applesauce, Annie’s fruit snacks, a sun craft, and a YummyEarth lollipop.
Guest arrived in the morning… they ate & squeezed their own OJ.
We made orange prints in the backyard!
Loved how different each turned out.
One family went home and embellished their project a little more! So cute!
It was a really fun morning! We will have a garden update next week!
Happy Summer, Bee
