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).
