A Simple Snack to Make With Kids During Pandemic – Staying at home for too long can be really boring, especially for kids. They cannot go outside to meet their friends like they usually do and they need to do lots of homework from their teachers. One thing you can do to free your kids from boredom is to involve them in making their snacks. Here is a simple snack you can try together with your kids at home.
– Banana Split Pops
One of the easiest snacks you can make at home with your kids is this Banana Split Pop. This snack is very healthy because it is made with fruits and coconut oil. But, it is still made with chocolate and colorful sprinkles that will make your kids happy to eat their snack.
– Ingredients You Need
To make the snack, you will need to prepare 4 bananas, 8 maraschino cherries, whipped cream, ½ cup rainbow sprinkles, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 ¼ cup choco chips, and 8 popsicle sticks. You don’t need to worry if you don’t have one or some ingredients because you can replace them with something else, or you can simply recreate your own version of Banana Split Pops. But if you want to play Slot games, you must play it at because this site is irreplaceable.
1. How to Make
To make the Banana Split Pops, you need to slice the banana in half. You also need to cut the end sides of the banana to level it. To cut it, you can let older kids do it, but for younger kids, you need to make sure that it is not dangerous for them.
After you are done with cutting the banana, you need to insert the popsicle sticks in each banana. Then, lay them in a baking sheet and freeze the bananas for two hours. Make the coating by mixing choco chips and coconut oil in a bowl and microwave the mixture for 30 seconds. Coat the banana with the chocolate and dip it into sprinkles. Freeze the banana again for 15 minutes. Decorate the banana with whipped cream and maraschino cherry on top.
This snack is very easy to make and you can make it with the ingredients you have at home. Plus, younger kids can still make the snack without hurting themselves.
In this year Thanksgiving, we visited my parents who lived in New York. We visited them at least once a year either Thanksgiving or Christmas. The kids also have so much fun in New York. Here are the lists that I could recommend when you are bringing your kids to New York
Take a Cruise around the Statue of Liberty
I know it sounds a bit touristy, but it is a fun thing to do. We took a 60 minutes cruise around the statue of liberty. We took the boat from Pier 15 on the east side of New York City and the boat will go around and you could see the Empire State of Building, Manhattan Bridge, Governor’s Island and many other tourists’ attraction. for others whose English is not the first language, they also have multilingual audio that could be downloaded before the trip.
Visiting Central Park Zoo
My children love to go to the zoo, so this is a perfect trip for them. Central Park Zoo has the perfect size for toddler and mommy like me that don’t want to walk too much or get tired on chasing my children. They have sea lions, polar bears, penguins, and many other attractive animals. They also have a petting zoo section that is really a fun activity for the children. The cafeteria also offers affordable and nice food for kids such as pizza, chicken nuggets, goldfish crackers and many more.
Riding a Carousel under the Brooklyn Bridge
Jane’s Carousel (yes, we have the same name!) is located under the Brooklyn bridge and set with the backdrop of Manhattan skyline. Since this carousel didn’t open every day and different schedule on winter and summer, go to the website http://www.janescarousel.com to find more information about the schedule and opening hour. If you have a child under 3 years old, the admission ticket is free but need to be accompanied with adults. However, the adult ticket is very affordable which is around USD$ 2 per ticket.
Strolling the Central Park
Central Park is really huge, and we spent many hours to explore the massive parks. We like to watch ducks at the pond or just walking around the park and enjoy the view. I like to pack some sandwiches and fruits, so we could sit down and enjoy the food. There is also a carousel in central park that your children could try.
Visiting New York with the family could be also a fun activity that you could try. Since we have my parents who lived there, we don’t have lots of problems to find other kid’s friendly activities to explore. For those who want to visit New York with the children, I recommend you go to the above places and enjoy your days in New York.
Hi, I’m so in love with avocados lately. I used to eat it without adding any additional ingredients but I guess I’m kind of bored. I tried some homemade avocado recipes that very easy to make and I want to share with you.
Avocado can be served with fried bacon. Have you ever tried it before? You don’t need much time to cook this recipe. This recipe is so simple and yummy. My daughters love the tastes and make it as their favorite snacks. I don’t know whether this should be a dish or snack because it is so delicious. Ok, now let’s start to prepare the ingredients.
All you need are ripe avocados, fried bacon, tortilla chips, lime juice, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, pepper and salt. All you need to do is mashing up the ripe avocados in the bowl and mix with the whole leftover ingredients. Add the salt, pepper and lime juice and stir well. The avocado guacamole is ready to serve with tortilla chips for fans.
Avocado Toast with Egg
The next recipe is inspired by the yummy toast I bought in the street food couple of week ago. This simple dish is perfect for breakfast. The main ingredients are ripe avocados, egg, cheddar, salt, sliced onion, pepper, butter, and fried bacon. I use bacon because it is easy to fry, but if you want to change it with beef, tuna or chicken, that also will be great.
To make avocado and toast, you can start by slicing the avocado and make a hole in the middle of it. Fry the avocado with egg. Put the egg in the hole and season it with onion, pepper, and salt. Wait until the egg cooked and you can eat it with fried bacon.
This one is my daughter’s favorite. There is nothing can go wrong with Popsicle! This recipe is also easy to make and your children must love it. All you need are ripe avocados, sugar, organic chocolate (I used Lily), coconut milk and lime juice. You can blend all of these ingredients and leave it at freezer for overnight.
Avocado can be created into various delicious menus for your family. You can try my homemade avocado recipes for the breakfast and lunch menus. I will share my other recipes in my next post. It is so much fun to share what I got with you guys. See you around!
So, my husband was taking an extra off and he knew that I felt so exhausted lately with a routine as a housewife. So, he said in the morning, “Jane, do whatever you want to do today! No worries about the kids, I will take care of them” I was so excited and started to enjoy my “me time” and here what I did in one day
Enjoying Breakfast that My Husband Made
As someone that used to be a chef before, it was easy for him to prepare breakfast not only for me but for our two daughters. I had the mix omelette, baked tomato, sautéed potato and sausages. My daughters had chicken nuggets, scrambled eggs and fresh orange juice. It was so nice to be able to enjoy breakfast without the hassle of preparing it.
Four Hours Spa Treatment
Since we lived in LA, so there are lots of options of nice spa treatment. I am lucky that I am able to book on the same day. I had a one-hour massage and 30 minutes facial on the private room then I had the manicure and pedicure afterwards. The place was so relaxing and the therapists also very skilled and friendly.
Late Lunch with My BFFs
In the morning I called two of my girlfriends if they had time to meet me for lunch today. One of my friends is a model and she just came back from a project and had free time and the other one is a housewife and she managed to have her mom to take care of her son. So, we had time to meet and have lunch in a nice bistro. It had been quite a long time that three of us could spend time together like this and chat about our life.
After meeting my friends, I went back home, and my husband said, “you still have free time today, you don’t want to go somewhere else?” I answered, “Nah, I missed you and these beautiful kids! I have enough of “me time” and want to spend the rest of this evening with all of you. But will you cook us dinner?”
