PB & J cupcake recipe at bottom of post!
Back to school time (as a lot of you know) is one of my favorite times! I'm all about the organization, order, and fresh n clean little people! Recently I contributed a couple of blog posts on Rook No. 17's blog.
So if you haven't already seen them,
click on over to read up on after school power snacks:
and sweetly sharpened pencil cookies!
In my last post, I promised to share more about the adorable etsy store:
Her products are extra fun, and simply adorable!
I gave my boys these re usable lunch bags at the end of summer.
Each design is unique and every stitch handmade.
The inside liner can easily be wiped clean.
Something else valuable to me is having little things that look PRETTY. If it doesn't look amazing or it's not useful, I don't need it. ;)
Finding small treasures like these bags make me feel happy because it just makes life THAT much more pretty.
These bags give our beautiful earth a big hug because we are saving on waste each time we use them. They are ideal to pack your child's sandwich in when you send them off to their school day.
Visit Nate's Mommy Made It etsy store to see her entire selection.
I picked the blue whale for Cameron,
the mod elephant for Kotah,
and the playful dino for Titus.
Sigg water bottles are also a staple in our home. We've been using these for years. They keep liquids cool, fresh, and clean. Does anyone else use and love their Sigg bottles?
Couple the bottles with the eco friendly bags, and you've gone all crazy green with your sack lunches!
When little footsteps arrive home from school with heavy backpacks falling to their toes, and an armful of books up to their chins, you can greet them with a household classic:
An all time classic
transformed into a trendy treat:
PB & J cupcakes
A small tip: You can make jelly-filled cupcakes by filling a pastry bag with jam and piercing the tip into the bottom of the cupcake. Squeeze gently to fill the inside of the cupcake.
A smear of jam and a spread of peanut butter frosting...
Salty peanuts, sweet jam...
They are fun choices to bring to school events and parties too...
I found this recipe on the website of the always incredible Martha Stewart.
School days are a
"peanut butter & Jelly kind of life"
and simple goodness.
