Three Ways To Survive The Last Month Of Summer
Posted August 13, 2012on:
Summer is supposed to be fun. But after a while, between mealtimes and the constant demands of “I’m thirsty” or “Can I have a snack?” it can start to get to any of us. But with a little creativity, you can make the rest of your summer a little bit easier.
Keep cold drinks handy– Prepare a jug of iced tea, lemonade, or just ice water, and keep it within easy reach of the kids. Put some plastic cups nearby and throw a cotton rug on the floor, and you’ve got an easy self-service drink station.
Same goes for snacks– Kids love to be independent, so keep a collection of healthy snacks where they can reach them. You can even set out good old peanut butter and jelly and let them fix their own sandwiches when they’re hungry.
Make use of that BBQ– Cooking on the grill is not only fun, but many foods are delicious when grilled. Throw on some chicken and a few veggies, and you not only have a healthy and delicious meal, but you’ve saved a mess in the kitchen.
