It’s the end of August so you know what that means… Back to School time! I’m having some serious mixed emotions about it this year. My boys are still in a pre-school program that I love and they do to. Last year they went 2 and 3 days but this year they will both be in school 4 days a week. Don’t get me wrong, they need it and I do too, they are starting to get a little stir crazy and we are ready for the routine. But, I have loved this summer and I will never forget the summer baby sister was born and we spent time learning all about our new baby… we are going to miss our crazy boys around the house, it might get too quiet.
I know that one thing will stay the same… the need for an after school snack. My boys always come home so starving! They wear them out at school :) It will be warm here in Texas for a few more months so we love to make homemade popsicles as an after school snack. My secret ingredient? DelMonte fruit squeezers! My kids LOVE them and ask for “squeezers” daily (and because they can’t read yet they don’t know they have hidden vegetables hehe).
These popsicles are so easy that my 3 and 5 year old boys can pretty much make them! Peach happens to be our favorite flavor around here so I picked up the peach mango DelMonte Squeezers from WalMart and a box of the strawberry too. For these Peach Punch Popsicles I used:
a whole peach mango squeezer
about 3/4c 100% real fruit punch
a little fresh squeezed orange juice
And we froze them to perfection :) My oldest son has declared these his new favorite flavor…. they are so, so good!
Fruit squeezers are also an easy and healthy favorite inside their lunches so we stocked up this past weekend! Right now select Walmart Superstores are running a back-to-school photo special. You can bring in or upload any photo and receive a free 5×7 photo. When you pick up your photo you will receive a coupon for $1 off the purchase of (2) Del Monte 4-pack Fruit Cups or (2)Fruit Burst Squeezers. The offer is available from 8/1 to 9/13 while supplies last.
Is anyone else feeling bittersweet about this school year? I know that in no time we will have the hang of it and it will be the new normal but sometimes this growing up thing is hard… especially for moms ;)
