Save Your Summer with these Freezer Friendly, On-the-Go Kids Snacks!
In need of snacks to take with you while you and your family are on-the-go this summer? Look no further than this freezer AND kid friendly list!
Whether you are a “pool mom” taking your kids to the local community center to swim on a regular basis, or you’re a “carpool parent” taking your kids from one camp to another, or shuffling them from swim lessons to soccer practice — we’ve got a snack you can have at the ready for all occasions!

Invite Your Kids to Help in the Kitchen
Boredom can strike hard and fast when kids are suddenly free to play all day long (I don’t get it!) If your older children show an interest, offer to teach them a little about cooking. For younger children, being mom or dad’s kitchen helper for the day is a treat in itself right? Getting your kids into the kitchen is a great way to provide them with a practical life skill, but it also means that they can actually be a big help to you! Check out these posts from our archives on teaching kids of all ages how to cook.
