3 Easy Do-able Kids Snacks

School holidays have arrived.  Again.  So I thought I would get my thinking cap on about how to feed my brood during the day, when all they seem to do these days at home is snack!  

Here are three easy, healthy ideas that are achievable for week one of the school holidays at least...

FRESH FRUIT POPS

So easy, you could probably start making them right now.  All you need is:

Ingredients:
2-3 Kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 pkg Fresh Strawberries, sliced
2-3 Tangerine Oranges, peeled and sliced
1 pkg Fresh Blueberries
Coconut Water
Popsicle Mold

PALEO APPLE COOKIES

I love that this little snack is so healthy that the little ones won't even know it!  Don't forget to dip your apples in lemon juice to prevent them from browing if you are preparing ahead of time.

FROZEN YOGURT BUTTONS

Greek yogurt (different flavored greek yogurt works a treat) and a zip lock bag is all you need for this one.  See..... easy!

Easter Egg Hunt for Toddlers

If you have little ones that would love to be included in an Easter Egg hunt, then this idea is perfect for them.  

Simply tie Easter Eggs (chocolate or even plastic eggs filled with treats) at the end of a balloon string and scatter them around.  

Little eyes and hands won't miss the  balloons, so they get an opportunity to 'hunt' for eggs too.  No missing out on any excitement!  

If you have older children participating, don't forge to let them know the balloon landmarks are for the little ones, whilst they look for eggs without balloons attached.

See the full tutorial at Celebrations At Home blog.

Half painted walls

Our Pinterest and Instagram feed has been seeing beautiful images of half painted walls lately, and we are digging it.

We love the look of a half painted wall.  

They bring liveliness and a little bit of playfulness to what could be seen as a dull room, which means they are perfect for kids rooms!  Here are a few of our favorites.

We love discovering easy DIY decorations.  Especially when they are THIS easy!

We found these Pom Pom  balloons over at The Land of Nod Blog and we just HAD to share them with you.

All you need to create these are 

  • Helium grade latex balloons

  • Hot glue (and a glue gun!)

Instructions?  It's as easy as putting a small dab of hot glue on a pom-pom and sticking it on the balloon!
