The weather is starting to get warmer and we are enjoying the outdoors!  It  has been in the 70s here and it's so wonderful!  When the weather gets warm my kids start begging for yummy Popsicles and cold slushes.  This berry lemonade slush is AMAZING!  Seriously it's so good and you will be surprise how easy it is to make.  It takes a matter of minutes to make up a batch.   The batch will be enough for the whole family or for all the neighbor kids (we had some kids climb our fence so they could have some today!).   The combination of the new Country Time Lemonade Starters and fresh fruit is perfect!

I headed to Walmart to pick up the new Country Time Lemonade Starters.  I found them in the drink aisle along with all the other drink mixes.  
#ad #PourMoreFun
There are three new flavors- Berry Lemonade, Classic Lemonade and Half Lemonade and Half Iced Tea.  They are super easy to use and you can make a single cup of lemonade or you can make a pitcher of it.  Plus they are super affordable because one bottle makes up 24 servings and all you have to do is add water.  
#ad Amazing-Berry-Lemonade-Slush #PourMoreFun (1)
This is what you will need for the slush:
4 1/2 Tbsp Country Time Lemonade Starter in Berry Lemonade
3 cups Water or Lemon Lime Soda
Strawberries, sliced
Raspberries
4-6 cups of ice

Add the ice to a blender and then add fruit. 
#ad Amazing-Berry-Lemonade-Slush #PourMoreFun (4)
Add the water/soda and then the Berry Lemonade.  Blend until smooth.  
#ad Amazing-Berry-Lemonade-Slush #PourMoreFun (5)
And that's it!  You can add some lemon slices into the drink or just have it on the side of the cup.  Either way, it's perfect for a beautiful and warm day! 
#ad Amazing-Berry-Lemonade-Slush #PourMoreFun (7)
My family absolutely loved these!  The flavor is amazing, it may be my favorite drink I've made ever!  We will be making these lots this summer, that's for sure!

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.  

Easter-School-Lunch-Food-Carrot-With-Printable
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!
