Violin Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Small Child started learning the violin this school year, and so far he is absolutely loving it.  The only problem we have is with making sure that he practices regularly, which is down mostly to my own disorganisation rather than unwillingness on his part.  One of my new year’s resolutions was to make sure that we got into the good habit of getting him to practice as often as possible, and last week I created a quick reward chart for him to tick off as a way of encouraging him.  I was very happy that he managed to practice nearly every day this week, and made him a special violin lunch to keep his enthusiasm fresh!

In this lunch Small Child had a wholemeal pitta bread, toasted and cut into violin shapes with a cookie cutter. I added some rough detail to the violins with an edible marker pen, and a small pot of organic houmous to spread on them.  On the side he had some mini sweetcorn slices (four, to make staves!), some carrot stars, a pot of organic vanilla yoghurt with mini star sprinkles, and some red and green grapes, decorated with music note food picks.

Small Child informed me that he asked his friends at the lunch table to guess what instrument he was eating.  One guessed guitar, but the other two correctly identified the violin, hurrah!
