Whole wheat animal crackers

What to do when we had a long beautiful weekend? Camping of course! This time, we camped in the backyard, completed with birds chirping early in the morning, grilled meat and marshmallow. The kids explored different plants, insects, and birds.

Mommy made yummy whole wheat crackers so the kids can pack for snacks. They were content.
