Rainbow on my plate : Cooking with my little chefling

My favorite quote in Sara’s room is :

“Play with fairies. Ride a unicorn. Swim with mermaids. Chase Rainbows”

This one quote on her wall has everything my little girl loves. But what she hearts the most is rainbows and has been drawing them ever since she could differentiate between different colours. “Rainbows make me happy”, she tells me. “You are a rainbow of possibilities”, I tell her.

She loves to be surrounded with paints, crayons, glitter, sticky stones, canvasses and more. Each and every wall of her room is full of colourful artwork and to be honest I am beginning to run out of space. Even her dolls have their very own artwork in their tiny doll house. All the special people in her life have at least one if not more of her colourful paintings.

In short, this tiny girl is obsessed with painting and colours and so we decided to invite some of her friends over for very colourful afternoon. The girls made many many sparkly cards, colourful loombands for each other and finally enjoyed eating all the colours  on their plates.

For her tiny friends, Sara helped me make rainbow tartines, tropical rainbow fruit salad cones and a rainbow cake (we can’t have a rainbow playdate without a rainbow cake dotted with colourful sprinkles, right?) and some lemonade.

So if like me you have an art/ colour/ rainbow obsessed little girl or a little boy in your home then trust me you need to give this a try.

I can assure you that you will be rewarded with not one but several pots of gold at the end (read: warm hugs).
