Making Lunches Easy & Healthy this Summer

 

 “I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Revolution Foods. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”


There’s something about lunch and summertime that just doesn’t seem to jive in our house. 

During the school year, my husband takes on the lunch duties with some help from the kids (they pack their own fruit & snack each day).  So sandwiches are always prepared the night before (I have a great hubby!).

Then summer hits and the idea of doing something in advance goes out the window for me 🙂

Do You Know What Your Kids are REALLY Doing Online?

With a teen and tween at our house, this is a topic that’s constantly discussed in our home.

I consider myself a pretty involved parent but I want to balance how much I monitor my kids’ tech behavior with being able to teach them good online skills so they can ‘police’ themselves.  So I was really happy when I was asked to tour and read the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Cyber Safe Futures website!

DIY Kids Chalkboard Backpack

 

Don’t you just love when you can reuse or upcycle something for the kids! 

We needed a back-up backpack for the year {you know, for the days that the regular one gets left at school or to use as a bag for afterschool activities}.

I really didn’t want to purchase another one since we have so many old ones from previous years.  But the issue is many of the older ones have ‘little kids’ pictures on the front or are pretty worn out.
