Have you settled into your new routines or are you still struggling to find ways to get things done, but keep it all fun? (Sorry for the rhyme.)
Here are some great products and ideas that your kids will love, will keep you sane, and might even make the Pinterest boards.
Of course we want our kiddos to have a healthy start to their day. These apple spice pancakes are packed with fruit to provide energy all the way through to lunch. But you probably don't have a whole lot of time to whip them up in the morning. If you make a large batch, they can live in the freezer for two weeks. To make them extra fun, we used these apple cookie cutters by Cookie Cutter Kingdom. They have tons of adorable shapes to choose from and come packaged in a sweet pouch.
We've talked about the P-touch by brother label maker, but you have really got to see it to believe it. There's plenty of fonts and little pictures to choose from to make your labels stand out. (I added coffee cups to mine because, well, obviously.) And if you don't know the brand poppin yet, you're welcome. Their office supplies come in any color you can think of so getting organized is a breeze and oh-so-chic. These pencils from BIC are so smooth and come in snazzy new colors. Doling them out in twos or threes monthly will prevent them from getting lost or "misplaced".
Craving easy breakfasts or after school snacks? Get this blender by Oster. It's such a lifesaver. Because it's designed for people on the go, you can turn the blending canister into a to-go cup! Plus, it's BPA free and dishwasher safe. Here's a quick smoothie recipe the whole family will enjoy:
One cup of ice
One cup of chocolate milk
A dash of cinnamon
A half cup of yogurt
We hope these tips, tricks and back to school breakfast ideas help you with your new routines. Happy fall!
