As part of our summer curriculum, Kaia asked to learn more about the gods and goddesses.
We’ve been taking our relaxed time reading through mythology stories, coloring pictures, doing crafts… But today, we brought it all to a close. We started the morning by designing our togas and decorating ourselves in gold. Then we broke out the Ambrosia (prepared the night before) and Nectar (peach juice mixed with carbonated water) and plopped down in front of Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief.
- 1 – 15 oz. can of Mandarin oranges, drained
- 1 – 15 oz. can of pineapple chunks, drained
- 1 cup of miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 cup walnuts or pecans
- 1 cup grapes
- 1/2 cup maraschino cherries
Place all of the above in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
Pour this on top of the fruit mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours (overnight is best). And enjoy!
We got our idea for the toga from here. We used the Greek Chiton design, but just clipped one shoulder. I love the way it looks on her. This would be easy to sew up into everyday wear!
