Kid’s Summer Snacks

Hello!  Is everyone out of school for the summer?  I hope so!

This weeks round up is about summer snacks.  Sometimes snacks can be boring if they are eaten too many times in a row.  So here are some snacks that may brighten up the lazy days!  So I hope that you enjoy and have some fun making some of these delicious snacks.

Cute Flower Pots

Hello!  It is finally Friday!  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  Because I know that I am.

So if you remember a couple weeks ago I posted a round up about gardens because I am obsessed with gardens right now.  I unfortunately don’t have a large garden, but I am working on my succulents and my new cacti on the front porch so I’m making some progress.  But because I don’t have an actual garden, I have to use lots of pots.  And of course some of my pots are pretty boring.  So I have been searching the internet for cute ideas for how to decorate flower pots and I decided to share my favorites with you!

If you want to read the gardening round up, click here.  I also have another round up regarding succulents, so if you want to read that one click here.  Enjoy!
