I have found the best way to get my kids to eat healthy snacks is to put it out right in front of them. An easy snack platter just for the kids is a great choice for afterschool snacks. Bonus points for making fun themed ones like these paw print snacks!

Great Wolf Lodge Kansas City – a Weekend Family Getaway

With the weather in the midwest all over the place, any outdoor plans are risky and finding indoor activities to keep the kids entertained for a day can be challenging. It got me thinking about planning another trip to Great Wolf Lodge. Their extensive indoor activity offerings and indoor water park would be perfect right about now.
