Happy World Smile Day 2012!

World Smile Day was created by Harvey Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts, who, in 1963, designed the original smiley face logo.

He thought that we all should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world, regardless of politics, geography and religion.

World Smile Day® is the first Friday in October each year, people all around the planet perform acts of kindness and help others smile.

Here is a healthy treat from family go that’s sure to put a “smile” on anyone’s face. Even the youngest kiddos can help create these; an excellent cook together.
