Back to school time happens for us next week! I may be very excited about sending the four boyz off in the morning, but I am not looking forward to the ravenous appetites they come off of the school bus with in the afternoon. Just like how we are practicing getting back to regular sleeping patterns in preparation for school starting, I decided to try some ideas for after school snacks.
I headed to Price Chopper Supermarket to check out their Back To School Solutions for #CollectiveBias. I love that they always have great sales and promotions happening with my AdvantEdge card. I picked up some of our family’s favorite items that I wanted to make with a few twists, including Capri Sun, Hillshire Farms Lunchmeat and Yoplait Greek yogurt.
I started out with trying the Yoplait Greek yogurt. I wanted to imitate the candy dots I grew up with. I first lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then I put the Yoplait in a baggie and made drops. I used Lemon Meringue, Key Lime Pie, Strawberry and Cherry. These are the colors they come out of the containers with, I thought they were perfect!
It took me a just a few minutes to line the whole tray. I froze them for about an hour and then cut the parchment paper into strips, reminiscent of the candies. I love how they came out!
Next up was making sandwich rollups with Hillshire Farm lunchmeat. Just like making a sandwich, I layered the Smoked Ham, cheese and veggies (always trying to get in some extra veggies!) into a tortilla and rolled it up. Then I placed toothpicks in before cutting them into strips.
I added a bit of washi tape on top to make ruler pennants, and in no time I had great rollup bites ready for the boyz to eat.
What afternoon snack would be complete without a drink? I added a Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters I had picked up from Price Chopper and we had great after school snacks for all of my boyz. From first grade through high school, all of the details for this snack were a hit with the boyz!
