With the kids getting out of school for winter break this week, I know parents everywhere are faced with two questions: What to feed them? And how to keep them entertianed? Lucky for you, I have the answer to both of these questions!
What to feed them:
Stonyfield 0% fat Greek Yogurt is is not only delicious (and it comes in yummy flavors like chocolate, caramel and peach mango. yum!) but it has good-for-you protein and, of course, is made without the use of GMOs or questionable ingredients. When they are done with their snack, be sure to rinse out and save the containers for craft time later!
How to keep them entertained:
Once you have three clean single serve Greek yogurt cups, you’re ready to get started making your Christmas tree!
3 clean single serve Stonyfield Greek containers
Green craft paint
Quick grab glue
Step 1: Use the scissors to cut the label away from the yogurt containers.
Step 2: Paint the outside of the yogurt containers with the green paint. I needed two coats to get good coverage.
Step 3: Once dry, use the scissors, an awl, or other sharp object to punch a tiny hole in the middle of each container. Tie a knot in the end of your pipe cleaner and thread it through the hole of one continer. The container should rest on the knot. Tie another knot a couple inches up and thread it through the next container. Repeat this process with the last container. Finish by tying a loop at the end for hanging if desired.
Step 4: Use the garland, pom poms and rhinestones to decorate the “tree” as desired! Once dry, stand the tree up or hang from the loop to display.
