This is a really cute craft to make based off of the book the tickely octopus. All you need is a paper plate, markers, and some different colored streamers. You have the kids color their octupus the way that they would like. Then they glue some streamers on the bottom of their plate for the octopus's legs.
Greek Pasta Salad is the perfect one-dish meatless meal. It's high in protein and fiber-rich so you'll stay fuller longer. Plus it can be made ahead saving you time. I would omit the pasta for lower carb!
