Today I’m launching a new series here on the Eats Amazing blog – daily themes for fun food ideas! I started putting a list together for myself for the coming school year and thought that maybe other fun food fans (I know there are lots of us!) might like to use it as a source of inspiration too. Today I’m sharing daily themes for the whole of August, hopefully it will help spark some inspiration to keep you and the kids entertained all summer long!
Whether you pack fun lunches, make fun food at home or just like creating or experimenting with new recipes, I hope that these theme day ideas might provide you with a bit of inspiration over the coming days, weeks and months! You don’t just have to use them for foodie inspiration though, these lists could also be a great source of inspiration for crafts, play ideas or themed days at home, school or playgroups. However you use them, I’d love to hear about it so please do comment below to let me know!
This project has come about because I’m forever seeing super fun themed days come and go and I just haven’t been organised enough to create anything to celebrate them. Golden opportunities like National Ice Cream Day for example, I was kicking myself for missing the opportunity to celebrate the day with ice cream shaped sandwiches or a batch of our favourite ‘nice cream‘! So here to make sure we don’t miss another awesome themed day are the lists by week for August:
