It has been hard getting back into the school routine for the kids after the holiday break. I feel for them. It has been hard for me too. We had amazing family time during the holidays, and I guess we are all clinging to it. But we are a week into school and we need to shift gears and focus on school positively. So I am determined to using these Tips To Beat Winter Break Blues.
Tips To Beat Winter Break Blues: Edible and Decorative DIY Owl Pudding Cups
Play with and craft up your snacks!: easy adorable owls will surely get the kids excited to talk about the benefits of going to school and keeping smart as an owl. All you need is back stick foam cut into 4 circles for the eyes, an isosceles triangle for the nose and 4 different sized ovals for the wings. As an added detail make scalene triangles for the eyebrows…yes we were brushing up geometry as we did this 🙂
Create edible pudding cup characters: pretty much everything goes great with Snack Pack® pudding cups. The mix-in choices for the day to create the edible owls pudding cups were bananas, raisins, and strawberries.
Celebrate back to school: surprise kids with a relaxing mix-ins picnic. It is a great reason to take the owls out to the park! The picnic gave us great laughs and gave us a chance to resolve any reservations the kids had about back to school.
Bring back the magic: the magic of Christmas, that is. Our trusty elves sent encouraging notes highlighting good things that have happened the first week at school.
Make easy DIY board games: I love this because this has helped the kids focus on getting homework done quickly and correctly. We set out to create the easiest DIY ever: get some paint chip samples and tape them together alternating colors. We did a board to play checkers and another one for to-tac-toe. We have no chips to play with so we used vanilla and chocolate Snack Pack® pudding cups to replace the chips.
As you can imagine, before we knew it, the winner was digging into her winnings!
