Easy Halloween Pumpkin Snack Bags


I remembered last minute that I was in charge of snacks for the 3 year old's class this week at my youngest school so I wanted to make something super quick, cute & easy! We decorated Cheez-its in baggies & loved how these turned out. I wasn't planning on posting this, but it was just too cute not to. We used a black marker for the faces & green twine to tie around the top. 

You can also fill these with carrots or any orange colored fruit.

These would be super cute for any Halloween party for the little ones!:)

Strawberry Shortcake Bento Lunch


We were asked by Driscoll's berries to come up with a fun lunch idea for Back to School & we created this fun Strawberry Shortcake Bento for your little Strawberry Shortcake fans!  I used to love Strawberry Shortcake when I was a little girl & love that they brought back the cartoon & toys. I still have mine from 1980...gosh I am feeling so old!:)

Strawberry Shortcake Bento

Driscoll's Strawberries 
Sandwich of choice 
1 Slice of Provolone Cheese
1 Mini Marshmallow
Chocolate Sprinkles
2 Mini Chocolate chips
Strawberry Yogurt
Red & White Sprinkles
Pretzel Sticks
1 Babybel Cheese

Start out by cutting the 2 bread slices into a circle using a cookie cutter of kitchen scissors. Make any sandwich of your choice & place in your bento box.  We cut our Driscoll strawberries in half & place them on top for the hat. Cut a slice of provolone cheese & place it on top to look like part of the hat. Cut a mini marshmallow in half & place on the front for eyes. Add 2 mini chocolate chips for the pupils.  We cut pieces from a strawberry to make the nose & mouth. We also used sprinkles for the freckles & eye lashes. 

We placed strawberry yogurt in the other container & added sprinkles on top including a strawberry.  

We included pretzel sticks & made a Babybel cheese look like a strawberry. Just take a knife & twist it around to make little circles. Use the top of a strawberry to place on the very top.


My boys didn't want to help with this one because they said it's for girls!ha  However, I had a lot of fun making this. However, they did love eating their Driscoll's strawberries!

Halloween Pumpkin Popsicle's


We have loved being ambassadors for Popsicle again this year. My boys just adore Popsicle's as most kids do & we always love coming up with creative ideas using Popsicle's. We made these Pumpkin Popsicle's the other day to celebrate Fall & Halloween coming up soon. My boys thought these were awesome & they take just a couple of minutes to make. We used orange Creamsicle's (my personal favorite)...

Fruit Leather
Green Pipe Cleaner

Start out by cutting off pieces of the green pipe cleaner & wrap around the stick of the Creamsicle. Then cut out the pumpkin faces from the fruit leather using kitchen scissors & place it on top.

See...we told you this fun Fall treat was super easy!

Rules for Being a Kid!

My boys have share lots of rules of being a kid in our previous Popsicle posts this year, but the most important rule to them is keeping yourself busy doing something that you love. My boys love to create. I am always amazed at the things they come up with using things we have on hand around the house or with food of course. 

It's so easy for kids now days to get lost in their video games & TV. There is so much more to explore & have fun with. Don't get me wrong...my boys are Mindcraft fanatics & that is another way of creating. However, it's all about balance & it's so fun to watch what the mind of a kid comes up with using crafts or building.  My boys will play with legos for hours & I just love watching their imaginations. Having a big imagination is what being a kid is all about with whatever you do.

Make sure to check out the Rules for Being a Kid Guidebook from Popsicle. There are so many awesome activities for your kids to look at. 


Don’t forget to visit Popsicle® via FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest and use the #PopsicleRules and #Contest hashtags to share YOUR family’s “rules”!

This post was created in connection with my appointment as an Ambassador in the Popsicle Blogger Program. Visit www.facebook.com/popsicle to join the conversation!

Fall Owl Rice Krispie Treat Pops


We created these fun Owl Pops to celebrate the beginning of Fall & my boys thought these were awesome!  They are easy to make & the kids will have fun helping make these.

Owl Fall Pops

Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats (pre-made)
Caramel Bits
Chocolate Chips
White Chocolate Candy Melts
Pretzel Rods
Chocolate Candy Coating
Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
Leaf Sprinkles
Orange Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds
Lollipop Sticks

Start out by shaping the caramel bits into triangles using your fingers. Poke your sticks in the bottom of a rice krispie treat. Break a pretzel rod in half. Break the other half into another half. Cut the ends to fit on the side of the pretzel half using kitchen scissors. Attach with the chocolate cookie icing & then squeeze more icing on top. Add the leaf sprinkles on top & let that set for about 15 minutes. 

Attach the shaped caramel bits on the sides to look like wings using the icing. Attach on the white chocolate candy melts on the front for eyes & chocolate chips for the pupils. We pinched off a couple of caramel bit pieces for the ears. Attach the pretzel tree on the bottom using the icing & we also used orange candy coated sunflower seeds for the beak & feet. 


Let everything set for another 15-20 minutes before standing it up. Here is a side view....


These would also be very cute to make for Fall class parties at school!
