Sarah makes dinner

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|File under crafty

… but it’s not the kind of dinner you’d think. :)

Emma was at a friend’s house so Sarah and I did our own thing. I got out the paper, scissors, the pencil crayons and markers, and I asked her to make her favourite dinner.

This is what she made.

And then she made dinner for Mark and Emma as well. I made breakfast.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
