MEALTIME WITH COLORS

We know that ingredients may be limited during this time.  We’ve included some ideas for colorful treats, but there is no need to run out for ingredients.  If you don’t have them and want to make them, you can always save the recipe for later.

A great idea is to have your kids come up with a list of meals and food that are made of their favorite color.  See what you have in the house and try to have them make a lunch with food featuring ONLY their color.

Other ideas include:

Please share any pictures and other recipes of rainbow and colorful treats that you make today or throughout the rest of the week!  Tag @bumpclubandbeyond and #BCBspiritweek so that we can share!  Here’s one of our favorite recipes that we found, perfect for today!
