Big Pencil Decorations for pics and parties - Val Event Gal

These big pencil decorations are so fun for back to school! Perfect for taking pictures, parties or just playing. I tried to get pictures this morning before Keira’s first day of Pre-Kindergarten. Of course as usual we were running late and didn’t get pictures. Tomorrow is another day and I am determined to get a few cute pictures! Sometimes the simplest tasks seem impossible with a kid. Especially pictures since they can’t stand still. For pictures I just love oversized props. Oversized or teeny tiny decorations are fun! Kids love oversized props for pictures and these big pencil decorations are lots of fun. read more

Fun Fruit For School Lunches- get lunches ready for school with easy fun fruit, the best way to get kids to eat fruit -Val Event Gal

Keira starts school this week! Last year she would eat everything in her school lunch besides the fruits and vegetables. I am struggling with getting her to eat fruits an vegetables. Especially the vegetables, anything green she will avoid like the plague! Fruit I can work with a bit. I wanted to make her fruit for school lunches fun with silly faces and animals. For some reason candy eyes just make any food more fun. If I have to add a dot of candy to get my kid to eat fruit I will!

For the silly faces I just cut an orange in half, put on candy eyes, used a blueberry for the nose and half a strawberry cut in a fun shape for the mouth. I then wrapped it in press and seal to keep it together in her lunch box. You can also cut up the orange in slices and hold it together with plastic wrap. read more
