Calm the March Break madness #LMDconnector

I have been blessed with three wonderful children.  I love them to the moon and back, they are my center of the universe and my will to live.  Yet, sometimes they cause me to get a little stir crazy, especially in times which we are thrown together for a week like March Break.  My children thrive on routine and we function best when we are chugging along in that routine.  Throw in a week like March Break and our routine is out the window and chaos can rule supreme.

This March Break I am going to try to reign in that chaos and find activities to calm the troops.

Often along side the chaos of too much together time, I always find my children rummaging through the cupboards and complaining that there is nothing to eat.

This March Break, I am incorporating the energy and the cupboard rummaging.  We are talking about baking with kids.  My newsletter from Life Made Delicious just landed in my email inbox, with great kid friendly recipes.

Why not try this fun recipe?  Bottom of the Cereal Box Cookies

My kids love to get their little aprons on and get their hands in the mixing bowl, especially when I let them lick the spoon when we are all done.  Baking with kids is a great teaching opportunity - from reading the recipes, to measuring the ingredients, baking is strengthening skills the kids have been learning at school.  Look for this recipe and other kid friendly recipes at Life Made Delicious.

Or, another idea I found on the website was a recipe for Edible Art.   Pour out some cheerios to make cut outs which the kids can decorate and then eat.  Decorating with icing, gel and candies make edible art a fun way to spend some quality time together.  With all the varieties of cheerios available, this is one tasty idea!

March Break doesn't need to be chaotic, when you have a plan to keep the kids busy and their tummies happy.
