I know that across the country many kids are heading back to school, but I’m happy that our school district doesn’t resume classes until Labor Day, so we are all together until September 8th this year, and I’ve been trying to make the most of our last few days together at home.
We love to do little picnics in our yard here, tea parties, lunch, brunch – we’ve done them all – but we’ve never done a sweet treat afternoon Snack Pack® picnic before!
My kids love SnackPack® pudding, so I thought about making a fun and easy mix-in picnic for them to celebrate the end of summer vacation.
What you need:
- Picnic essentials: an adorable blanket, preferably a basket, and plates, napkins, etc.
- Snack Pack pudding: chocolate, vanilla, and butterscotch flavors.
- A variety of toppings: such as raisins, coconut flakes, chocolate sprinkles, whipped cream, candies, flavored syrups, etc.
- A little time to spend with your kids.
I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t take enough time out of my schedule to just ‘be’ with the kids, without rushing here or there or worrying about what I should be doing or what has to be cleaned…and I need to stop. Stop all of the nonsense that we *think* has to happen, and start doing more fun little moments like this.
Snack Pack® picnics on a summer afternoon – just because; because the kids will love it, because I know that in the span of my life there are only a few short sweet summers that they will want to do this and because it’s important and will be a great memory.
Even if your kids are back to school already, I encourage you to do something new: surprise them with an after school Snack Pack® picnic that is all set up and waiting for them when they arrive home. It will make them smile, which in return will make your day.
This back to school season take a moment to slow down and enjoy a tasty and fun treat with the kids. Snack Pack comes in a variety of flavors and offers endless mix-in opportunities the kids can help prepare. Each serving of Snack Pack is fortified with as much calcium as an 8 ounce glass of milk*, so you can feel good about serving your kids Snack Pack. For mix-in inspiration, visit Snack Pack on Pinterest (Pinterest.com/snackpack) and Facebook (facebook.com/snackpackpudding).
** All Snack Pack products contain at least 30% DV of calcium, with the exception of Bakery Shop Lemon Meringue Pie, Lemon Pudding, and Snack Pack Gels.
