YAY DADS, YAY FAMILIES!

We applaud our government for doubling paternity leave from 1 to 2 weeks. While it is our hope that more and more companies will give dads the extra time for family, here are 3 simple things you can do with your kids today! 

  1. Teach them to feed themselves

OREO BALLS (Avoid large portions unless you want a hyperactive kid)

Ingredients:

  • 12 Oreo cookies
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 8 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions:
Crush Oreos and mix them with milk. Add the peanut butter and honey and roll the mixture into balls. Refrigerate them for at least 30minutes before consumption. For extra pretty desserts: roll the balls in melted chocolate and sprinkle crumbs before serving.

2. Teach them to be a spy
