After school is out, many kids head straight for the kitchen for an afternoon snack. Cookies and ice cream are always enticing, but what if you could find a way to offer a healthier alternative that’s fun to make?
Local Certified Nutritional Chef Alyssia Webb Birnbaum from Mama’s Gotta Eat says that with a few art supplies and a little creativity, your kids can make a butterfly clothespin (or a whole kaleidoscope of them) to use to create fun and functional snack bags. Really, any creative design will do, so get inspired.
That way next time your kids are tearing through your kitchen looking for an after-school snack, they may look forward to deconstructing their project from the day before.
