Some cool treats: Ice cream and ice pops

Icepop2It is summer and ice cream season is here, we have fun making it with our Play and Freeze ice cream maker. Making popsicles is a childhood favorite for many, but in the past our family has only used fruit juice for our popsicles, but finally the ice pop trend has hit our household and we have started to make ice pops out of the fruit and not just the juice. It tastes so good and it is fun and easy for kids to make.

Go Play Outside Fortune teller

8 Backyard fun ideas

fortuneteller

In today's post I'm introducing an old favorite childhood toy; the fortuneteller with a twist. Last year I really enjoyed my friend Jen's Kitchen Chronicle's idea I'm bored jar". She suggested a jar with different activities and suggestions in it to get kids up and doing something. With the end of the school year approaching us, I think it would be great to have a tool when that boredom moment hits our kids go give them a little help to get them outside to play. We have tested it this weekend and I can tell you it was a big hit in our house. Making an outdoor fortuneteller is a great activity for kids (Age 7 an up).

Monday we went strawberry picking with friends, as we do every year. When the season hits we schedule a trip.  So if you do want to pick your local strawberries you have to make sure you seize the season.

Playground Police

BY LAURA KELLY

“Every one minute, you come back and check in with me. If you go to either of the other climbers, come and let me know.”

That’s what I overheard at the playground today. A mom told this to her eight-year-old daughter. She repeated it, too, holding up her index finger to emphasize: one minute.

Let’s go strawberry picking


By Kari Svenneby

Sure you can get fresh strawberries all year around, but nothing beats the taste of local strawberries in season. It is a sure sign that summer and sunshine is here to stay.

I hope you go to your local Farmer’s Market and find strawberries grown in your area, but why not go to one of the local farms and check out what fresh really means.
