Crepes for KIDS (OK for adults too)

I am not super creative with my crepes like some people who can make amazing statues or 3D art with their crepes but I thing that this satisfies my kids enough, that as long as they think its super cool, its cool with me.

This is the most basic recipe that I used:

3 eggs
1 1/2 cup of flour
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. skim milk
that gave us about 8 crepes that were all about 5-6 inch 

Here is one of the creations that I came up with while making them
I realized that I should take a picture before its too late and all gone, 
all the others were already made and stacked.

This is a bear!!!!
we also had a kitty cat, a heart, sunflower, sun, and a doggy, 
(and of course mommy got the regular round crepe, LOL)

My awesome dude on the left with his cousin on the right,
looks like it was delicious....

Our Monarch Butterflies

So at first we received this little jar in the mail and watched our caterpillars grow
and turn into cocoons

when they were ready we took them out and hung them in the special butterfly house/net.

 At first only one showed up and my kids were truly amazed.

The next day we welcomed the entire family.

Today we decided to let them go so they could spread their wings and fly 

It was so wonderful to see them fly away and also bring joy to my kids 

what a great memory.

We hope they will stick around a bit so we can watch them a little more...
