It’s hard to believe the school year is coming to an end once again. This time of year is always a special time. I love having my kiddies home and taking a break from the stressful routine that comes with the school year. I cannot wait to make more memories with them this summer.
I recall LOVING summer break as a kid. The excitement leading up to the last day of school was almost too much for me to handle! I lived in Brooklyn and basically each house on my block had kids. We were always outside playing, living it up… no homework, no tests, no studying. The only schedule we kept was when the ice-cream man was coming!
Now as a mom, I get to share my excitement with my two little peeps. We cannot wait to chase fireflies, live in bathing suits, paint seashells, swim, stay up late and SLEEP LATE!!!
As the end of the year festivities ensue, I try to contribute healthy snacks. These “blast-off fruit skewers” will be a hit! They're super easy to make and great for involving the kids - Chloe and Max made the “fire” out of cut construction paper.
Whatever your plans are this summer, enjoy… and have a blast!
Blast-Off Fruit Skewers

Cut tops off strawberries
Slide grapes and blueberries on skewer (as many as you prefer)
Slide strawberry on last for top
Cut slits in the construction paper.
Wrap the paper around the exposed part of the paper and tape to secure.
