Homemade Slushies and Slurpees are a great way to cool off on a hot day or just enjoy a cool treat. They really aren't hard to make and kids will love experimenting with different combinations.
Smoothies don't have to be loaded with lots of ingredients and be difficult to make. A good go to recipe for making smoothies can include one of each of these three ingredients: 1 Liquid: milk, juice, almond milk, water 1 Fruit: whatever you like chopped- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mango, peaches, pineapple are all good choices 1 Extra: extra fruit, yogurt, vegetables, whey protein, ice cubes, oats, chia seeds

Hobo dinners are simply dinners wrapped in tin foil and cooked in the oven or a campfire. You might hear them called hobo dinners, foil packets, or tin foil dinners.
I love that it is an easy clean up meal and each member of the family can create their own individually just how they like it. We use them often even when we aren't camping.

One of the joys of kids summer cooking is planning the perfect picnic lunch. You need to get your child to think about recipes that can be stored easily and don’t require people to be sitting at a table with a knife and fork to eat. You also need to get them thinking about foods that will work well cold, unless you plan on taking a portable stove with you.
If they’re not sure about what to pack, suggest trying:
• Salads - Be sure to help your child chop the pieces big enough so that people can pick at the salad with their fingers. For an extra challenge, you can introduce your child to salad dressings, and spend time with the blender trying to make the perfect mix.
• Sandwiches - Lay out lots of different ingredients, and ask your child to put together sandwiches for all the picnic guests. This will help develop their sense of empathy. In addition, they will get a good feeling when people congratulate them on their choice.
Kids Trail Mix Recipes
Keep these few steps in mind when making trail mix, and you can create different versions over and over.
Better yet the kids can create their own variety and pack them for snacks and lunches!

Years ago, grandparents passed their recipes down to their children and grandchildren. Over time family recipes were established. Life has gotten a little busier and many cherished recipes are being forgotten. Does this sound familiar?
Did you love Grandma's Zeppoli fried dough but no one else knows how to duplicate the recipe?
Don't let the years pass you by without taking the opportunity to share, cook and write down your family's favorite recipes. Start by making your own family cookbook. Get your kids involved in cooking by showing them how each recipe is prepared. Sometimes a lot is left out in family recipes and many recipes have different ways of being prepared.
Don't just give your kids the recipe prepare it with them. This will help pass down short cuts and discover different ways of making the tried and true recipes your family loves.
Cooking is a great way to teach your kids about family history.
If you have passed down recipes teach them about their grandma…
