    12 Most Ridiculous Santa Letters

    Having been good all year round, your kids would probably be starting to write their Christmas wish list for Dear Old Father Nick. As we know, kids can be rather cute hoping that the big friendly guy will reward them with the latest fad toy. It’s often the case that what they write on their Letter to Santa would bring a smile to our face, but when you have infinite posibilities for what present you’d like to unwrap on the Christmas Day,  you’d be surprised just how ridiculous their requests can be.  1. That’s a bit hoarsh of the kid 2. The kid whose Dad knows Santa 3. This kid deserves a Nobel Peace Prize 4. Santa’s got a curfew 5. Ra Ra ooh la la! This kid is Gaga for his doll. Just give it to him! (wink wink parents) 6. Don’t you just hate it when they don’t come with batteries! 7. This ‘baby’ got back… 8. I think her daddy might not approve of at least one of them… 9. You hear that parents, I mean Santa, you got a couple years to make that happen. 10. I mean, stuffed chicken is good. 11. Noted, Santa will give your sister coal for Christmas 12. Abort! Abort! Abort!   We hope you enjoy the holidays. Please share your Letters to Santa story.

    Healthy Snacks for Kids Recipes

    Nowadays, we get so health conscious about what we feed our kids. Making healthy snacks for kids can be time consuming because you would need to make it from scratch. But there can be a way to make preparing quick, easy and fun.  We recommend these simple recipes that will leave your kid smiling for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack.  Rainbow   Fruit  Skewers Ingredients 7 raspberries 7 hulled strawberries 7 tangerine segments 7 cubes peeled mango 7 peeled pineapple chunks 7 peeled kiwi fruit chunks 7 green grapes 7 red grapes 14 blueberries Take 7 wooden skewers and thread the following fruit onto each – 1 raspberry, 1 hulled strawberry, 1 tangerine segment, 1 cube of peeled mango, 1 chunk of peeled pineapple, 1 chunk of peeled kiwi, 1 green and 1 red grape, and finish off with 2 blueberries. Arrange in a rainbow shape and let everyone help themselves. Fruit and Nutty Yoghurt Ingredients 3 tbsp chopped mixed nut 1 tbsp sunflower seed 1 tbsp pumpkin seed 1 sliced banana 1-2 handfuls berries (frozen and defrosted is fine) 200g vanilla yoghurt Mix the nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.
