15 Positively Tempting Pizza Crafts for Kids
Time for a Pizza party with these tempting Pizza Crafts for Kids! With Pizza Party Day on 20th May, we’re ready to have some pizza fun!
In modern days, when we talk about paying someone, it’s usually in terms of money. However, in the olden days, we didn’t have money, so other objects were used. Yes, people paid in cattle and gold, but then there are legends who paid in pizzas!
Yes, ancient Latin texts say that the bishop of Gaeta, in Byzantine Italy, was to be paid in pizze, on Christmas and Easter. Honestly, I think that’s a pretty good deal!
It is believed that pizza has a lot in common with pita, which was called pitta earlier. Isn’t it fascinating to see how food travels across countries? Especially when you’re tracing the route of something you enjoy eating!
With May 20th being National Pizza Party Day, it seems appropriate to celebrate pizza and everything it stands for – gathering with friends and family, celebrating small wins, and sharing love with food. So place that order for your favorite pizza and while you wait for it to arrive, keep yourselves busy with some delicious-looking pizza crafts for kids!
