Easter Snack or School Lunch Food Idea- Carrot Shaped Snack Bag with Printable


I am having so much fun putting fun Easter treats and snacks into my kids' school lunches this week.  And they are loving it too!  I have been putting in their normal foods, just making them Easter themed.  I found these awesome carrot shaped bags at our party store and I knew that I had to do something with them!  You can fill them with really anything because they are already orange but I decided to add Goldfish to them because my kids love them and I usually send a bag of Goldfish anyway.

All I used were the bags, Goldfish, the printable I made and twine.  If you can't find carrot colored bags, you could use clear cone shaped bags and then fill it with Goldfish or other orange colored food.

I filled the bags with Goldfish and then tied it off with twine.

Then I added the printable.  If you don't get the pun of the printable it says I carrot (care a lot) about you.  Just a fun thing to send to your child.

Easy Easter School Lunch Food Idea- Bunny String Cheese with Printable


Last year I made these fun bunny string cheeses and they were a huge hit!  So I thought this year I would make them for my kids' school lunches and then make a fun little printable note to go with them.  They are so fun to make and so easy.  Plus I know that my kids really enjoy getting something special in their school lunches!

All you need is string cheese, some fun pom poms and paper and then the printable that I made.

I cut out the ears with scissors out of the paper and then got some matching pom poms.

Using a glue gun, I glued them onto the string cheese.  Just make sure it's not too hot or it will burn the plastic and cheese.

I drew some faces and then added the printable.  That's it and super easy and cute!  Sure to bring a smile to your kids' face.  Plus, it's healthy!!

Easter School Lunch Foods- Duck Fruit Cups with Printable

I think that it is so much fun to send something fun in my kids' school lunches.  It's just fun to surprise them every once in awhile with a fun note and a fun food.  These duck fruit cups are perfect for spring/Easter, plus they are healthy and I know that my kids will love them!  I made up a fun little printable to go with it them.  
Duck-Fruit-Cup-with-Printable
I took some pineapple fruit cups, googly eyes and some orange vinyl to make the ducks.  You could easily draw them on or use paper.  I then printed out the printable and cut them into little tags.

I put the vinyl on and glued the eyes onto the fruit cups.

And that's it!!  You could glue the tag on or just put it into their lunch boxes (that's what I'm going to do).  Either way, I'm sure it will put a smile on your child's face to see it!

Does anyone else become a monster when they are hungry?  There are days that I get so busy that I forget to eat or I forget to have a little afternoon snack and then I get super grumpy and I get irritated very easily.  Sometimes I just need something tasty to get me back to being "human" again.  I have an amazing apple and SNICKERS® recipe that helps me fight that hunger and that monster inside me!  

Are you guys ready for this AMAZING recipe?  Seriously it's one that is so good that everyone in my family gravitates to it and we all just down it before we even know it!  It's so good and so easy to make, plus it uses SNICKERS® Almond candies in it, so you know that it's going to be great.  
#ad Apple-SNICKERS®-Delight #WhenImHungry (15)
I headed to Walmart to get the ingredients for it. I found the SNICKERS® in the candy aisle. 
#ad #whenimhungry
There are several kinds of SNICKERS® bars.  I ended up grabbing the SNICKERS® Almond, Peanut Butter Squared and SNICKERS® Extreme because they all look super yummy!
#ad Apple-SNICKERS®-Delight #WhenImHungry (12)
This is what you'll need for the recipe:
2-4 apples, sliced
SNICKERS® Almond bars, any size
Hot fudge
Sliced almonds
6 oz. of caramel candies
3/4 cup whip cream
#ad Apple-SNICKERS®-Delight #WhenImHungry (14)
1) First heat the caramel candies and whip cream on the stove on low heat.  Stir constantly until all is melted and smooth.  Put aside.
