Poor Small Child, I had to take him to the doctors yesterday after he’d suffered 12 days of a nasty stomach bug that he just hasn’t shaken off. The doctor’s orders are for him to eat nothing but toast for the next 3 days, along with water and flat lemonade, in an attempt to clear his system of the bug once and for all. Small Child is utterly fed up, especially as he hasn’t eaten much more than toast in the last few weeks anyway, so I’ve promised him I will do my best to make his toast interesting. Here are my efforts so far today!
For breakfast, I toasted the bread, added a small scraping of honey and cut the toast up into mini squares using my Funbites cutter. I presented it to Small Child in a bowl with chopsticks to eat it with.
I also gave him a plate so that he could use the pieces to make a mosaic picture before eating it – I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be but here is his mosaic!
At lunchtime, I decided to get a little more creative with the toast and attempt to make it look like something else. Here it is; a cup of tea and a biscuit! I cut the toast into shapes using circle and flower cutters, and put the leftover scraps into the tea-cup under a round disk of toast that was meant to represent tea.
This went down very well with Small Child, who enjoyed pretending to drink the tea and dip the ‘biscuit’ in it. Now I’m off to think of another idea for his toast dinner…
