Earth Day 2012



We had an Earth Day snack at our house that we shared, just like how we have to share our planet.  After some thought about how on earth (hee hee, earth) I was going to make our planet, I settled on yogurt and kiwi.  I used blue food coloring in vanilla yogurt.  I attempted to make continents out of kiwi.  They ended up very abstract :)  It turns out carving kiwi is not the easiest, but the bright colors sure look pretty!

I made people of all colors surrounding our home we share with a small gingerbread cookie cutter.  I used ham, turkey, cheese, and two different kinds of wheat bread.  

1 EARTH 1 HEART is written with food safe markers.  It washes right off of the plate.  When I was doing this I realized that earth and heart contain all the same letters.  I never knew that before. Hmmm.

The girls gobbled it right up!
