The kids want a snack..
You want them to eat nutritiously… 
They need a little fun and excitement
 along with an activity to exert some of their abundance of physical energy. 

Below is a perfect solution!

It takes just a little time, but produces big results.
It is also an activity that can be made independently by older children.
Add a little music for your “shaking” and you have the perfect snack/activity.
So, grab a spoon from the drawer, a box of instant pudding mix, an empty container with a secure lid, a willing child;  add some music and let the fun begin!

(I like to use empty plastic peanut butter jars.  The lids screw on, you can see inside and they are eay to pour from.  However any container with a lid that fits on securely will work.)


Happy “shakin, snackin”!
