Adorable Butterfly Snack Bags

Butterfly Snack Bags

Raise your hand if you have a hard time getting your kid to eat their lunch or snack at school! *raising both of my hands high!* My daughter was NOT eating her snacks at school about 60% of the time. When she did eat it, she would never finish it. Even if I sent her with her favorite foods she would come home not having eaten but 2 bites. So I decided to try to make a cute snack bag that would draw her attention away from the fascinating conversations that her and her 4 year old friends would be having and actually notice the food sitting in front of her. And what do you know? It WORKED! She said all her friends loved her butterfly and she ended up eating the whole thing!

Easy Peanut Butter Balls {VIDEO}

Peanut butter balls

If your kiddo’s are anything like my girl, then they love helping out in the kitchen any way that they can. Even though most of the time, her helping me is a little unpractical and sometimes mostly gets in my way, I still like to include her any way that I can.

One of her favorite homemade goodies that is way better for you than cake is peanut butter balls. Its just a few ingredients, easy to make, and most importantly to me, its easy to clean up. LOL Read More →
