At the end of summer, it’s important to get kids excited about going back to school. We took the kids on a few end-of-summer outings and had fun talking to them about how great the new school year will be.
The kids have enjoyed helping us do all of the back-to-school shopping, including shopping for groceries. They picked out a lot of grocery items for school snacks and lunches and I added a few that I thought would be extra fun.
To get them even more excited about the beginning of school, I decided to share one of those fun lunch treats with them. I packed up our picnic basket and let them know that we were going for a hike to the stream where we would enjoy lunch.
There’s a small beach along the side of the stream and the kids love to play there while we eat our picnics. In the past, I’ve usually just packed regular lunches because the hike and picnic itself were the “fun”.
But this time, I had an awesome surprise for the kids. Along with the Snack Pack® cups that they love, I also packed away lots of fun toppings for them to mix into their puddings.
Fun Snack Pack DIY Sundaes!
I brought everything from honey oat granola and walnuts to rainbow sprinkles and chocolate chips.
And of course, because I wanted to be sure that the kids would enjoy their treats, I made one for myself to “test” ahead of time. Mine was a Vanilla Snack Pack® with granola and chocolate cookie bits.
We hiked out to the stream with the kids having no idea what I’d packed away in the picnic basket. When we arrived, I passed out the sandwiches, peaches and milk and we enjoyed our lunch together on the beach.
Then while the kids played, I set out the surprise.
More toppings than they could have even imagined!
The kids were so excited and couldn’t wait to get started creating their treats. Once they realized that they needed more room for their toppings, they even ate part of the snack packs to make more room.
The Snack Pack DIY Sundaes were a hit!
