Heading back to school this year is unlike anything we've ever experienced! McKinlee is heading into Kindergarten, and I was really looking forward to her going to school, meeting friends, and learning so much! This year, we are starting the year off with distance learning. We got a taste of this last year while she was in pre-K. I tried to do some school-at-home lessons, but most importantly we tried to learn new things as we went about our day. This seemed to have the most lasting effect on both girls instead of trying to follow a strict lesson plan.
Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites
One of our favorite things to do is cook and bake together. I decided to do a fun afternoon activity that involved measuring and counting, while also making a sweet treat! We made these yummy peanut butter no bake energy bites using our favorite SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter we picked up at our local Kroger store! These peanut butter no bake energy bites are honestly SO easy to make, even your little ones can get involved. You can customize them however you'd like by adding in ingredients you love or taking out ones that aren't your favorite.
The girls had so much fun talking about measuring the ingredients, pouring them in the bowl and mixing them. The best part was rolling out the balls. I'd highly recommend adding this type of activity into your school at home routine to mix things up! Have them count up the ingredients, learn about fractions, addition, etc. It's a great real world activity!
We have always loved Kroger and we shop at their Fred Meyer brand store here in Oregon. They always have such great prices. I love shopping with their app and adding coupons to my list before I head into the store. They also offer grocery pick up which is super convenient especially right now.
SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter
The possibilities are endless when it comes to SKIPPY®Creamy Peanut Butter! The girls LOVE their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! They could eat SKIPPY® Peanut Butter for every meal, but they really love it on top of their pancakes, in sandwiches, and they love dipping apple slices in it too. SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is the fun brand that values quality family time over perfection. It allows me to have a little more family time, a little more, fun, and a little more deliciousness in any occasion! I love that it provides us with an easy solution for our busy days, plus we love the taste!
