Easy OREO Football Party Favors

Planning a football party? Me too. My youngest chose football as his birthday party theme for this year. I still have weeks to plan, but we needed an easy party favor to celebrate with his classmates on the last day of school since he has a summer birthday.

These simple football party treats only take a few minutes. You’ll need:

And here are the super easy steps:

  1. Insert two OREOs into the cello. The best part, they fit right in perfectly.
  2. Cut about 2″ off the top of the bag.
  3. Seal with a piece of washi tape.
  4. Draw football threads with a Painters pen.

I packaged the football bags in a small basket with a personalized pennant. He was happy, his friends all loved them and it only took me 10 minutes to pull together. {grin}

If you’d like a personalized pennant with your child’s name, you can find them in the shoppe with my Monster Birthday Party Supplies. We can even change the color combination if you’d like. Just send a “convo” in Etsy and let me know what you need for your child’s party.

fun food ideas for healthy lunches

Hey everyone, it’s Bridget today! 

I’ve got healthy lunches on the brain since my Kindergartener just had her first lunch at school today, normally she’s just half-day. {sniff}

Daily packing with healthy lunch recipes can be a challenge with three kids; and this time of year I feel almost out of ideas and I’m looking for some fresh inspiration for what to pack for lunch.

Kids eat better when they think it’s fun (even if it’s a green veggie!). And what kid doesn’t love to play with their food?! So I rounded up nine fabulous lunch box finds to share:

  • Tasty Bugs via Nestle Kitchens are sure to have your kiddo bugging out when he opens his lunch box {smirk}
  • String Cheese Pencils via Moneywise Moms are just “write” for any lunch box! I know, but I’m on a roll!
  • Sick of sandwiches? Tortellini Salad via Parents is just one a long list of alternate lunch box ideas
  • Last Day of School lunch via Bento-logy is a charming way to make an impression
  • Owl Cookie Cutter sandwich via Cookie Cutter lunches will make any lunch a hoot! OK! I promise I’ll stop now

Sometimes a lunch box just needs a key snack or treat to make it exciting:

simple Rudolph cookies

I love to bake with my boys, especially at the holidays. After seeing these fun and super simple Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer cookies on pinterest via Meet The Dubiens, I knew the boys would love being able to make cute cookies without a ton of icing work. See, they love the flour, the rolling, the cutting and eating the icing… but not necessarily piping the icing. {wink}

We prepped our area (I typically just flour our granite countertop) and pulled out a ton of cookie cutters.

Then my little one remembered to grab his apron… or maybe I reminded him as his cute stripe pjs from Target were getting slightly floured. I have pics of flour all over his cheeks too. He was trying to get low enough to see the thickness of his dough (so his cookies would bake evenly) and he put his face on his rolling pin!

Next we cut out all the shapes.

Then I reminded the boys that we had to chill the dough or our pretty shapes would come out of the oven as blobs. They understood and waited patiently… okay… they tried. Let’s face it, it’s not easy with the smell of gingerbread in the air.{grin} 

For the reindeer cookies we used chocolate (melted in 8 second intervals in a resealable bag and the tip snipped off) and Red Hots. A few lines and a few dots and we had adorable Christmas cookies!
