When school begins, travel gets put on the back burner, but that doesn’t mean learning about destinations around the world ends. In the past, our family has made time for learning about different countries throughout the year. Each child would choose a country to research and we would head off to the library to find books and possibly movies to learn more. We would also search online for recipes and music and plan one meal representing the cuisine of that country. Our children really enjoyed this, but as our lives got busier, we stopped making time for this. When I saw the Try The World subscription box, I realized it was the perfect opportunity to rekindle this tradition.
Whether you are traveling by car or plane, it can be helpful to have snacks nearby when hunger strikes. We’ve asked around for 25 easy to make and pack travel snacks and I think you will love what we found. A nice mix of sweet and savory and a few allergy friendly recipes too. A perfect companion to our most pinned post of all time, 25 Easy to Pack Travel Snacks, and many options here for after school, lunch time, or game day too. Enjoy!
Holiday Lettings, a TripAdvisor.com company, has asked if I would like to collaborate with them and share some guest posts on my blog. My first post for Holiday Lettings is about where to find unique tapas in Spain, written by Felicity Howlett. Since I lived in Spain during college and have returned several times since, I loved reading all of her restaurant recommendations. Here’s what she had to say:
Every year, people head to the state fair to experience the rides, have fun as a family, and sample the deep fried food. When I recently read an article about the best state fairs in the country, Wisconsin’s was on the list. I have vivid memories of visiting the Arizona state fair with my parents when I was younger and I wanted my kids to have this experience. My husband was not a big fan when I proposed a trip to the fair, but he begrudgingly agreed to tag along when we visited last week. I think I won him over when I told him there would be Deep Fried Cookie Dough.
In our family, there is meal time, and there is snack time, and it often feels more importance is given to the latter. We have found that nothing satisfies a child (or adult) on the verge of a meltdown more than a quality snack. Here are some of our favorite choices for snacks on the go. Some of these work best if you have a cooler and don’t have to deal with TSA, others work well with any mode of transportation. Hopefully, even the pickiest of eaters and most food allergy sufferers will find something to satisfy them on this list.
