Snacking on KIND Healthy Grains Bars


It likely goes without saying that our household of 7 is constantly on the go.  During the summer it's vacations, weekend outings, skill camps, gym time, and playdates and during the school year it's school functions, sporting events, dance class, and the likes.  And with our busy schedules, it always feels like a major victory when I find a healthy portable snack everyone likes.

Using Netflix to Promote Kid's Summer Learning #StreamTeam #netflixkids

In my experience as a mom the key to summer learning is to never mention it is happening.  Words like "educational" and "historical" are strictly off limits.  One needs to simply roll with the fun and slide in a few scholastic tidbits without the kids even realizing it.  My main strategy is to work with the themes our summer dictates.  A visit to the zoo, a road trip to the Rocky Mountains out west, and a weekend excursion to Wisconsin all can become a springboard for summertime brain activities without the kids even realizing it.
