Chocolate Dipped Halloween Pretzels

Wow! I can’t believe we are less than a week away from Halloween already! Bunbun has decided to be Frankenstein this year. I’m not quite sure where this idea came from, but I find it cute. Her class did an activity for Halloween called, “Guess Who I am?”. The kids drew a self portrait of themselves and described what their favorite things are from Halloween. Such as favorite activity, candy and/or treat. Then they write what they will be for Halloween and the others guess who is who. Bunbun’s was a dead giveaway for me when I noticed it on the bulletin board. Her self portrait was a girl with pigtails, colored green, with stitches on her face. I knew it was Frankenstein!!! Or as she labeled it; “Franken Girl”.

Savings at Publix: Back to School Superhero Snack Station

Back to School Superhero Snack Station with Free Superhero Girls Printable

Week two of first grade brought homework. And lot’s of it! Bunbun has 10 spelling words, reading homework and a cute little about me poster project to complete. Last week, I purchased a new desk for myself and gave her my old one. I set her up with a little writing/art station using a bin I had purchased a while back. I took advantage of the back to school Savings at Publix and stocked up on some crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks and scissors as well. I added scrap paper to another compartment and voila! Bunbun loves her new little set-up and it allows her to be creative with no restrictions on art mediums.

S’mores Popcorn

As if you’re not already salivating from my previous Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores post, I am back with more! I couldn’t stop at just one and I got totally into the s’mores last night. Literally!

Did you know that the first s’more recipe was published in the Girl Scouts Handbook in 1927? This now popular snack was called “some mores” way back when. And clearly, it’s fitting because you always want more!

I’ve decided to put a twist on popcorn for this years National S’mores Day. Sure, everyone loves popcorn with their movie, but what can be better than s’more popcorn?

This snack is everything s’mores and all you need is a good movie
…and some napkins!
