How can you not pay attention when Anne Curtis and Solenn Heussaff collaborate? The two have put their heads together to put up a new baby clothing brand called Tili Dahli last June 2021.
Now, under the Tili Dahli brand, Solenn's YouTube channel is sharing two one-minute videos of simple activities for the kids: how to make pizza (to eat) and moon sand (made of food but for play).

Food processor or blender
Pulse or blend all the broccoli florets in the food processor or blender until they turn into a mushy, green substance.
Add in the 2 large eggs, the Parmesan and Mozarella cheese, and the Italian herb seasoning.
Mix all of them a little bit then pulse or blend again until all the ingredients have mixed well.
Spread the mixture onto parchment paper and shape them like tiny pizza circles.
Put it in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes at 400°F.
Take out the baked broccoli pizza crust and add the pizza toppings of your choice. (Solenn added tomatoes, more cheese, and some basil leaves.)
