Mothers Day

~ Happy Mothers Day  ~
( Homemade treats for mom by lil ones !) 

Mother is such a simple word, 
But to me there's meaning seldom heard .
For everything I'm today . 
My mother's love showed me the way 
( What Mother Means by Karl Fuchs)

With mothers day tomorrow  , its time to think for some 
tiny treats that kiddos can make .Its difficult for the little  ones 
to take over all the cooking duties for a day , but they can surely 
add a zing to the celebrations with some tiny treats . These treats
 are fun to make, easy  and impressive!!!! So lil ones wear
 your  aprons and chef hats and get ready to gear up some 
lipsmacking stuff for momma . Don't forget to make this edible 
handmade card in  advance !!! These tiny treat will definitely 
speak louder than words :) 

Edible Card for Mom 

Forget the printed market cards, this cute card is not only easy
 to make but yummy to eat too !! Play creative and use mom's favorite 
cookies for flowers . Instead of making colorful paper cutouts for 
clouds, leaves and grass, tiny tots  can even draw and color these.

Materials required- Colored A4 size pastel sheet,glue,  colorful 
paper - green and blue ( or crayons), 2 flower shaped cookies ,
 some cling wrap and double sided tape. 

Method- Cut out grass and leaves from blue and green sheets
 respectively . Fold the A4 sheet and paste the cutouts ( or draw and 
color the same). Tightly cling wrap the cookies and stick on the card
 with double sided  tape . Write some lovely words or a poem inside
 and present it to momma early morning tomorrow along with 
some flowers from your garden .

Nutella and coconut truffles

These easy to make coconut ladoos or  truffles make a great 
edible present too!! With jus a few ingredients and 5 mins in hands 
they can perfectly  add a sparkle to the celebrations. 

Ingredients - 2 + 1/2 cups desiccated coconut ,200 gms ( 1/2 tin ) 
condensed milk , 2 drops vanilla essence ,2 tbsp nutella , 
some oil/butter  for greasing the hands 

Method- Mix together 2 cups coconut with rest of the ingredients
till it forms a soft dough . Divide the mixture and shape into round
 discs. Place 1/4 tsp nutella in the centre and gently shape into balls . 
Roll in reserved desiccated coconut and serve.
