Summer with 3 teenagers is definitely an adventure. Mornings are quiet while they sleep, evenings are loud and late while they rally, and friends are always over! It can be exhausting, but I also love it. The kids are all so fun at this age and I love their friends. I know I’m really going to miss this stage when they are adults!
Most things anyway. ;)
I’m sharing a quick and easy snack I make often for the kids and their friends in the summer. I try to keep healthy snacks prepped in the fridge and not so healthy snacks in the pantry to feed them. Balance in all things, right? Ha.
I can get snacks here quickly with Walmart.com. When I order groceries on-line from the app I love their substitutions feature. You can choose what product substitutions you do or don’t want (so you never get anything strange that you didn’t order!), place the order and then pick it up or have it delivered.
Great Value has so many cookie options for a great price so they are a go-to for me.
I always keep graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows on hand for the fire pit. Summer staple!
I’ve had these marble print trays and bowls for years and love using them with the kids because they are melamine! They look beautiful but are light weight and they don’t break. Perfect for summer snacks.
In just 5 minutes I can have this s’more and cookie tray ready to go! Just line everything up and DONE. Sometimes I add a bowl of fruit with it. I know this isn’t anything all that fancy or special, but let me tell you why this is perfect for teens. They don’t care about it being fancy or special.. they just want to eat. :) I’ve made this before using a long wooden board which looks good, but it’s hard for the kids to carry around outside without dropping things. I’ve learned a handled tray is the way to go!
You know I’m really going above and beyond when I match the kitchen rug again. ;)
Easy to carry outside by the fire pit!
I made one for the teens on Saturday night and had enough snacks leftover to make another tray for the family Sunday. You can’t go wrong with s’mores and cookies! Always a hit.
If you need a quick and easy dessert idea for the 4th this Golden Oreo Layered Pudding is one of our favorites! Also easy to throw together and so festive with strawberries and blueberries on top.
I share this fruit dip every summer too because it’s another go-to for me! You just whip together 8 oz cream cheese (softened), a 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme and 2 teaspoons of Maraschino cherry juice. Delicious!
There’s some fruit for you to balance out all of the cookies. ;)
