They are just screaming banana muffins! LOL
So the girls put the cupcake liners in the pans.....
I mashed up the bananas.....
Added the ingredients and the girls used our melon scooper to make the perfect sized muffins!
After they were baked and cooled, Kathleen and I enjoyed one! Hayley likes to bake but claims she doesn't like banana.....we say her loss....these were so moist and warm!!!
I've always talked to the girls about recycling and ways to help our environment. So I wanted to find ways to reduce school lunch trash each day. I enjoy packing Hayley a healthy lunch as well as Jerry. :-)
Kathleen will only have snack this year since she's in Kindergarten so I got a few of these to hold her snacks also. We've always used our own drink containers but this year we found these...
They are by thermos and they fit great inside their lunch bags. Straw is BPA free!
I also always use our own silverware and this year decided to get this set from Pottery Barn Kids that has a nice case to keep them in. The colors are more fun for them too. :-)
You may have heard of lunchskins? If not, these are great! You can label them and resuse for sandwiches, snacks etc. Hand wash or throw them in the top rack on your dishwasher! Saves a ton of waste and fun for the kids! The crab one is for Jerry and oh the girl's picked a lizard for him too! LOL
They close up with strong velcro.
I also found these wraps that open up into a placemat that is also reusable.
Helps cut down on all those germs on the lunch room tables!
I found my products on reuseit.com. I received no compensation just a product I found and wanted to share!
I decided to store them all nicely and conveniently in this basket on my counter.
Be a cinch when packing lunches :-)
I also got Hayley this thermos with her name on it from Pottery Barn Kids....
Great for sending in warm and healthy meals!
I also ordered them cloth napkins with designs on them to put in their lunches each day... but I threw them in the wash before taking pictures, lol. I found them over at fabskins.com. :-)
I can't believe Hayley will be entering 5th grade and Kathleen will start Kindergarten!! Sigh...
Notice how Hayley has her ball cap flipped up? She said just like Justin Beiber Mom.....:-)
These are two of the outfits we found them on clearance at Kohl's. Plus they had Kohl's cash back. Got some great deals and will be heading back to use the Kohl's cash this week.
