Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣
⁣
Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣

Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣
⁣
And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Easter Baskets on a Budget

Easter is one of those holidays where I have been known to go all out. In the past, I’ve spent way too much money creating the perfect Easter baskets for each of my kids. I would find one thing that they really loved that year (ex: Unicorns, slime, mermaids, etc.) and build a full Easter basket around that theme. While my daughters LOVED every single item, I realized that just days after Easter, they lost interest in just about everything I put in the basket. It’s time to stop wasting money and start shopping smarter! Are you with me? This year, I gave myself a $20 budget for each Easter basket and was able to find some great options at both Dollar Tree and the Target dollar spot!

Here are my Easter baskets on a budget.

Target Dollar Spot Easter Basket Ideas

Target dollar spot is the first place we always visit when we go to Target. You can find just about anything there and with prices from $1 – $5, it’s easy to fill up the cart before you even get into the actual aisles to buy what you were there for in the first place.  Our local Target has already started filling up their dollar spot section with lots of Easter goodies. And if you are looking for even more, try to pry yourself away from the dollar spot and you’ll find lots of treasures throughout the store. Make sure to check out the clearance in each department. It’s an overlooked section that can have some great things at an even better price.

Here are some of the things I chose:

  • Glitter Egg Shaped Bouncy Balls – $3
  • Easter Adhesive Bandages (if you have a young child, you understand why these are a must) – $1
  • Decorating Kit (includes 12 eggs and 5 markers) – $3
  • Water Fizzer Bunny (drop in water and a surprise is revealed) – $1
  • Easter Pencils – $1
  • Light Up Bounce Baton – $1
  • Bunny Hat – $5
  • Paint Your Own Wood Ornament – $1
  • Various Candy – $1

I was able to fill up a basket with 10 items for only $17.10 (don’t forget all of the ways to save money at Target). They had so many more options (and even more this week when we went back), including a variety of basket options from $3.

You don't have to spend a fortune on Easter baskets, especially with places Target. Here are my Easter Baskets on a Budget ideas.

Easter pencils, band-aids, chocolate bunnies and egg shaped chalk are just a few cheap Easter basket stuffers

Dollar Tree Easter Basket Ideas

Who doesn’t love Dollar Tree? Everything is $1. We can do some serious damage in that store!  Our local Dollar Tree has filled the front of their store with Easter goodies, including an entire aisle dedicated to Easter candy alone.  The best part about Dollar Tree, is that you can often find additional Easter Basket fillers throughout their aisles, so the possibilities are endless.

Here are some of the things I chose:

  • Coloring Book
  • Crayons
  • Various Easter Games
  • Egg Decorating Stickers
  • Egg-Shaped Sidewalk Chalk
  • Glitter Bunny Glasses
  • Bunny Ear Headband
  • Pencils
  • 5 Various Candies

I was able to fill up our basket with 14 items for only $14. I also purchased the reusable totes for $1 each. They came in a variety of colors.

You don't have to spend a fortune on Easter baskets, especially with places Dollar Tree. Here are my Easter Baskets on a Budget ideas.

Are You Curious Which Basket My Kids Preferred?

Falynn, age 6: Falynn preferred the Dollar Tree basket, specifically the candy (of course), the egg decorating stickers and the pinball game. Though she did make it a point to snatch the bandages from the Target basket.

Iyla, age 9: Iyla preferred the Target basket, specifically ALL of the arts and crafts items and the glitter bouncing balls.

Lucia, age 13: Lucia preferred the accessories and candy from both baskets. Luckily, Dollar Tree has a wide variety of makeup and nail polish (that’s what she really wants).

What types of things do you put in your Easter baskets? Are you a no-candy parent or a lots of candy parent, when it comes to Easter basket goodies?

    We always did simple Easter baskets when our kids were growing up. Doesn’t have to cost a fortune. All about the real reason for the season after all.
