Day 1: Jodi Day Camp: STRAWBERRIES

I am happy to say that the first day of “Jodi Day Camp” was a success. We collectively made some excellent “Banana-Strawberry-Blueberry-Chocolate Chip Cake”:

We used a Banana Nut Bread recipe (doubled) … excluded the nuts … and simply added chopped up fresh strawberries, frozen blueberries, and chocolate chips. Then we mixed some brown sugar with some melted butter and sprinkled that over the top. YUM! It was heavenly.

With our leftover strawberries, we made some very satisfying strawberry lemonade and scrumptious strawberry milkshakes (though I forgot to take photos – they were too delicious to wait for). Then, as planned, we made some all-natural strawberry paint in order to create some rich and delicious artwork (just mash up some strawberries, grab some paper and paintbrushes and start creating).

Throw in some dress-up play and a few board games … and it all made for a very good day.
Thanks kids 🙂
