The word “summer” invites a flood of visual images: kids splashing in a pool, lazy days at the beach, picnics at the park, fireworks and the 4th of July. For moms of young kids, its fighting off the “I’m bored” syndrome. Now that my youngest two are almost all grown, I no longer have to deal with that – Mike and Tom both have a driver’s license and have wheels to get them off to adventures of their own making. But just because I don’t have little ones – and my boys at home are anything but little – doesn’t mean that I am not always searching for wholesome treats for my big kids…and if we’re quick, there might be some leftover for the girls in the house!
Using the awesome little push pop containers, I filled them with different kinds of yogurt and fresh fruit. I really love the Greek vanilla yogurt, but I enjoyed the color of the flavored yogurts…yes, color is always important! The fresh fruit plays a big part of the mix and you can include whatever fruits your kids like best. The best thing about these? Portion control!
So I think that a summer giveaway is in order, especially since it will be over before we know it! Here’s what is in the package: I have three (3) bags of push-pop containers, with the pieces for twelve (12) complete push pop containers in each bag…that’s 48 pieces. All you have to do it leave me a comment as to what YOU would like to do with them…I love ideas! You will have until midnight Friday, August 19th, 2011 to post your comment. Saturday morning, when I wake up, I will draw three random names and I will include the names of the winners on that morning’s post.
After they arrive at your abode, I would really love it if you would share the ideas you come up with, with pictures if you have them! Now that I’ve taken pictures mine, they’re ready to eat! Frozen yogurt anyone?
