Our Summer in Yoghurt with FAGE UK #YogArtist


We were recently invited to be part of the FAGE UK #YogArtist challenge; an opportunity for children to be creative with Total Greek Yoghurt and Fruyo.  We were sent an artist's pack to assist with our creations and after a lengthy family discussion we decided that we would recreate some of our favourite summer adventures.


Meg and Eli love being in the kitchen and, more than that, they love the opportunity to make a mess.  It is not an exaggeration when I say that the Greek yoghurt we used ended up everywhere.  What you don't see from the photos is that I was actually wearing the apron we got sent as part of the kit to protect myself as I took the pictures!

It was hard narrowing it down to just four of our favourite adventures this summer, but the kids really enjoyed being a part of the discussion process especially the part where we discussed which ingredients would work best.  Meg in particular was keen to volunteer her services as Chief Taste Tester.



But despite the mess (I can say that because washing up isn't my job!), they had an absolute whale of a time making the pictures out of the ingredients and I don't think the results are half bad.



Just in case you aren't a yoghurt art expert, I have included a little explanation of what each picture represents.


There were also some jamjars included with the set we were sent so we used the remaining ingredients and Greek yoghurt to create a layered effect.  It is quite difficult to see the fruit through the yoghurt but I assure you, it's there!


Overall, it was a really fun and exciting way to get the whole family into the kitchen and working together.  It was very easy and simple to do and all the ingredients were healthy too, bonus!

We were sent an artist's kit in order to take part in this challenge.  However, all thoughts, opinions and creations are our own.
