Birthday Party Treat Ideas, Ice Cream Pops with Nerds quick and easy and sure to make the kids smile

 PIN IT here

Birthday parties stress me out… my kids think they are the most magical day.  I don’t want to let them down but at the same time I am only 1 persons and I am NOT Martha Stewart.  But I have found if I just do a few little things they make a BIG impression on the kids.  For example I made Rainbow Ice Cream Pops for the kids.  You would think I was handing them a season pass to Disney Land, their eyes lite up and their smile was from ear to ear.

Little did they know that these Rainbow Ice Cream Pops are really just an ice cream sandwich with Nerds on them, with a stick in the ends.  SHHHH don’t tell the kids :)

Place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and put them back in the freezer.  This will give them a chance to harden back up, take them out right before you serve them to your guests.

You could also do this with colored sprinkles, but some how the Nerds are just more fun (or at least that is what my kids tell me ).  Simple project that will make a BIG impact at your next party.  Good luck

Kid Friendly Ziploc Omelettes~ Money Saving Recipe by Tiffany

I’ve used this method many, many times when making multiple omelettes and when you have a big family or house guests, making them this way comes in handy.  I love that no one has to wait for their special omelette, everyone gets to eat together and that’s a plus at my house. This is a great was to get the kidlets involved in the kitchen too! Picture this idea for a morning breakfast after a slumber party with a bunch of tweens. I can see it now! :)

Ingredients

  • black permanent sharpie marker
  • Ziploc quart sized freezer bags
  • large or jumbo eggs ( TWO per omelette, we used jumbo sized eggs.)
  • Variety Of Ingredients
  • cheese, shredded
  • green peppers, chopped
  • breakfast potatoes or hash browns (your cold, cooked leftovers or frozen. If using frozen, follow directions on package for cooking method.)
  • salsa
  • onion, diced
  • tomatoes, diced
  • mushrooms, diced
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • ETC.

Directions

  1. Set up your variety of ingredients before hand by chopping, dicing, shredding, etc. Place into little ramekins or desired dishes.
  2. In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil.
  3. Have each family member or guest write their name with a permanent sharpie marker on the front of the Ziploc. Have each family member/guest crack two eggs into their bag, tell them to squish it with their hands from the outside of the bag. Next, have them add desired ingredients to their bag, squish again. Get as much air out of the bag as possible by holding it up and gently folding it over, zip up the bag. Place zipped up bags into boiling water for 12 minutes, no longer. Open bags and roll out onto desired serving plates. Serve with fresh fruit, toast, or whatever else you’d like. :)

Orange Vanilla Yogurt Pops by Tiffany

It’s been hot! I thought it was time to bring y’all a cool treat. The kids and I love yogurt pops. You know what I love the most about them?! It gets us all in the kitchen developing different flavors – together! Sure – we could just buy the yogurt tubes – stick them in the freezer and call it a day – but I try really hard to involve the kiddos and let them use their imagination in the kitchen. Plus - we get to spend valuable time together while they are learning life skills. They get so excited knowing that they actually created something that was worthy of eating.  Pucker up! This recipe will be for my tarty lovin’ friends! ;)

Yields approx. 12 pops

Ingredients

  • 1 container 32 oz. vanilla non-fat yogurt (we used Nancy’s brand)
  • 1 cup 100% frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon pure orange extract

Directions

In your standing mixer, mix yogurt, orange juice and extract together. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.
