Then gather the following items below and head outside!
Every summer we love making memories with our children and pizza on the BBQ is a must! A family friend has inspired us to take pizza making to a different level!
As I have said many times, cooking with your children is a great way for them to try new things.
*4 cups of homemade tomato sauce
*2 large fresh mozzarella sliced paper thin
*1 bunch of Organic basil leaves torn
*1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
*1 cup of Extra Virgin olive oil
*2 large pizza dough rounds (Either purchase from a local pizzaria or make the dough homemade)
*Large wooden or plastic cutting board
*1 wooden rolling pin
*5 small bowls for ingredients

1.) Preheat the BBQ to 500* degrees on a medium flame preferably.
2.) Place all ingredients along with a spoon in each bowl.
3.) On a cutting board lightly flour the surface and rolling pin.
4.) Next cut each dough round in half and set aside.
5.) Take 1 out of 4 rounds and roll in a thin rectangular shape, brush with olive oil, then place oil side down on the grill and cook until slightly brown 3-5 min.
6.) Brush the top with Olive oil and flip to cook the opposite side. Quickly add 1 cup of sauce, basil, fresh mozzarella and any other toppings, then cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.

Take it from a Mom who adores creating memories each summer, and finding fun ways to cook with the kiddies!
Whether at the beach or at home I have the kids lay a few newspaper sheets for each child, then fill cups with water. Afterwards I write each child’s name on the backs of all of their shells to prevent any issues.
Crayola makes amazing sets of paint, glitter glue pens, as well as a variety pack of paint brushes which are perfect for a number of children to share.
I usually model for the kids creating my own shell, and dip my paintbrush in a cup of water in between colors, then dabbing it in a paper towel.
Activities that are hands on and promote creativity are the most memorable ones for children I feel.
Enjoy your paint fest, and turn a simple shell into a masterpiece with your kids!
Take it from a Mom Who cant wait to stroll with the kiddies for more shells this week, and have a shell exhibit for our family!

Looking natural is my focus, and I adore having fun with eye color for fabulous looks for evening, when the Mommy hat is removed, lol!
