The lazy days of summer are officially over for my kids. It’s back to school which means I’ve got to come up with some great lunch ideas. On some days, I like to send a sweet treat to school like Snack Pack® puddings.
Snack Pack® puddings are some of my kids favorites. It’s perfect for lunches, and it’s perfect for after school snacks, too. I always keep a pack or two in the fridge.
Two of my kids have already started school, so I decided to do something a little fun on the first day of school. When I picked them up from school, we went to the playground and had a little Snack Pack® Picnic.
I got the supplies to make two kinds of treats. We made Sandy Beach Pudding cups to say goodbye to summer, and we made Alphabet Soup pudding cups to say hello to school. Adding mix-ins to pudding is always a fun treat.
For the Alphabet Soup Pudding we used:
- Snack Pack® pudding in butterscotch
- Alphabet cereal
This one was supposed to look like alphabet soup. I was surprised this one was so much fun for them. They started spelling out words with the cereal before they’d mix it in.
For the Sandy Beach Pudding we used:
- Snack Pack® pudding in vanilla.
- sand: 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs + 1/2 cup brown sugar
- gummy rings
- sour people
- rainbow gummy strips
- little party umbrellas.
This was a little sandy beach with an umbrella, beach towel, life preserver, and towel with a little sour man.
This was a lot of fun to make with all the different mix-ins. It’s also not complicated. My 5 yr old had no problem making her own sandy beach.
