This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Noshi Food Paint. The opinions and text are all mine.
On the road or at home, we’re always learning together. The preschool years are so much fun! Learning through play is such a great concept and fun for all of us. I decided to start some of our learning fun in the kitchen. They know how to unload the dishwasher and count each dish as they hand them to me. I even enjoy it now. And, I hate doing the dishes!
Next, we’re moving onto sous chef training and letters. But wait, how do those go together? Trust me! They do.
During our last Walmart trip, I came across Noshi Food Paint – an organic fruit puree with no added sugar, salt or preservatives – and I decided to give it a try. My kiddos helped me mix up my famous pancakes. Two cups of flour, one cup of milk, etc. and they’re learning math as we go. It is still crazy to me how much they learn by helping me with things I do every single day.
After we cooked up our pancakes, it was time to practice their letters. That’s where the Noshi Food Paint comes in.
Ok, my 2-year-old got straight to the pancake eating part. But Evie was all about practicing her Es on her pancake. She was so excited when she got to play with her food and eat it. I mean, come on! How often do we moms get to say yes to that?
Asher is usually the one-off playing with his trucks and dinosaurs while the girls play school with me. Not this time! He was all about it. I loved watching him paint A for Asher then “taste his A”. Each box includes three different edible colors and flavors, red/strawberry, yellow/peach and purplish-blue/blueberry. The yummy taste of purple/blue is the winner in our house right now.
It is so perfect that Noshi Food Paint is a healthy alternative to syrup and jelly. I’ve already stocked my pantry with more. Bonus! My Littles ate the mess – no cleanup. That’s a mom win in my book.
Sometimes, it is difficult to find fun and educational activities that all three of my kids enjoy. B was so excited to join in on this one, but after she tried to paint with the paintbrush, she got frustrated. The Noshi paint tubes are perfect for her little hands. She can grab it and squeeze it herself, no brush needed. She was so proud of herself when she was able to sit right alongside her brother and sister and “do school”.
After I grabbed the Noshi Food Paint at Walmart, I found out that for each box purchased, Noshi gives back to No Kid Hungry. It is a non-profit organization working to end child hunger in America today by ensuring that all children get the healthy food they need. I love supporting a company that gives back and teaching my kids to do the same.
Pancakes were such a hit with my kids, so now I am on a mission to find more fun foods we can make and paint together. I’m thinking sugar cookies are next on the list. My mom has the best recipe. We might even get adventurous and make some holiday cookies together. How cute! Fruity painted Valentine’s hearts, Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas trees are definitely in our future. And, I love the idea of teaching them to give back just like Noshi does by sharing those cookies with someone special.
