With Halloween around the corner, the Organic Jammy Sammy in Strawberry, Blueberry, or Apple is a nice alternative to giving candy! Other options are the Sun-Maid Raisin boxes & the Cascadian Farm Organic Chocolate Almond Granola Bars. These little snacks are also handy to keep in a pantry “Kid Snack Station” — mine is simply a basket of healthy snacks that my kids access themselves. They learn to become responsible for thinking ahead & packing their own snack for afterschool activies, sports, or lessons. I also stock a refrigerated “Kid Snack Station” with options like string cheese, fruit, and yogurt cups all ready to grab ‘n go.
If you’re making a DIY costume or other decor, the Velcro (in various sizes & types) is a timesaver! Look for it in the Halloween Aisle. Also, if you’re doing a party, the Pillsbury Halloween Cookies are so cute — there’s a recipe on the back to make Cookie Pops, as well as a $4 Rebate. The Rebate info is HERE, and requires a purchase of this cookie dough & ET movie on Blue Ray or DVD. I plan on using my Temp Tee Whipped Cream Cheese and Simply Eggo Waffles together for a special treat. In a nod to the fall season, I’ll mix a little pumpkin puree into the cream cheese … add pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon … and spread on toasted waffles! Yum! We’re on “pumpkin watch” right now! If you spot any Halloween pumpkins at your store, please share! I spotted some pumpkins at the Concord Park & Shop store last week!
