Quality Time Activities

Most of us would like to spend more time with our kids; but with all the demands on our time- school, work, friends, after-school activities- it may seem like we're constantly driving from activity to activity with no real time to connect with our loved ones.

Each month, the Family Focus section will feature a new activity that you can try out with your kids. These activities are designed to encourage you to spend quality time with your kids and to open up the lines of communication. The activities will also help to reinforce those important character traits and build your child's self-esteem.

July Activity - Fresh Fruit Popsicles

Ingredients:

  • Fruits of choice:
  • Strawberries, Kiwis, Blueberries, Raspberries, Peaches, etc.
  • Popsicle Molds
  • Juice of Choice: Apple, Orange, etc. 

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your fruit. Peel and slice into bite size pieces. 
  2. Layer fruits in popsicle mold order of size. Strawberries, peaches, and kiwis should be placed first then allow smaller fruits like blueberries and raspberries to fill in the gaps.
  3. Add as much fruit as possible in the mold and then fill the rest with juice. It is important to leave a bit of space at the top for the juice to expand once frozen.
  4. Freeze the popsicles overnight.
  5. When ready to enjoy, run molds under hot water to help the popsicles release. Enjoy!
