Crafting With My Little Angel and Halos Oranges
I’ve always dreamed about leading arts ‘n crafts with my child one day and am so thrilled that my little one is into it. I try to ensure that she has some sort of artsy exposure everyday whether that means an outing to one of New York’s many art galleries, installations and exhibits, or making sure she has hands-on art experience through class/school or at home. So when Mom Trends and Halos invited us as one of the bloggers to join them at the Children’s Museum of Arts, we jumped at the chance to share some quality mommy and me time this Saturday!
They had the most ingenious crafts all incorporating their seedless mandarin oranges!
Together, we made a bird, a bunny and even a potted flower!
Who would have thought to craft with food but orange you glad you now know?? (sorry I had to insert that corny children’s joke)!
Seriously though, how cute are these creations, all made with some construction paper, glue dots, googly eyes, straw, cupcake liners, and pipe cleaner – basics that any crafter at home most likely already owns! Juliet loved it!
We already love Halos oranges because they’re sweet, seedless and easy for toddler hands to eat and peel. They’re such a healthy non-GMO alternative to the many unnatural, processed snacks out there. Plus they make for great on-the-go, packable treats! I also learned through the event, that “Pure Goodness” is Halo’s motto. Halo spreads goodness through their charitable work. They contribute more than $2 million annually to kids’ education, they partner with Feeding America to provide healthy fruit, and they support solar power usage and water conservation. They’re good to families, communities and the land! Kudos to them! That’s a halo well-deserved
And the food. Can we talk about the Halo orange – infused FOOD?! I’m getting hungry as I type and look at these pictures remembering all this deliciousness. Fruity pizza cookie made with pomegrante seeds, oranges and pistachios atop a frosted sugar cookie? YES PLEASE! Orange infused cider, chocolate covered orange slices, mandarin salsa, spring salads and smoothies?
Uh can I go back right now for MORE?!
Luckily, they sent us all home with a bag of oranges, a craft kit and all the recipe cards to replicate this tasty experience at home. I’m definitely trying this prosciutto bruschetta bite below!
Is anyone else’s mouth watering now??
Thank you to the team at MomTrends and Halo for inviting us to such a fun mommy and me experience! We enjoyed the day at the museum (see my IG feed and stories), learned so many great things about Halo and had a memorable day crafting away!
