Toddler Vegetable Theme

I love Instagram and I am far better at keeping that updated than this blog! My apologies. I discovered some like minded accounts with weekly challenges that have been very inspiring and lots of fun! A few weeks back the week’s theme was veggies – see their post here for details. Here are all the ways Charley and I interacted with veggies:
