Summer vacation is a great time for building memories. And there is no better way to make memories than going on a road trip. But regardless of the destination, it is often hard to keep kids active and happy for several hours. Sitting in a closed space for long periods and taking short breaks every now and then is sometimes tough even on adults.
So, just imagine the plight of little ones in the same situation! But don’t you worry, this can be easily dealt with “SNACKATION”. What is Snackation, you ask? Allow me to explain.
Think about it, kids are mostly impatient. They can’t imagine being immobile for hours. This is not their usual self. But if their tummies are happy, chances are they can be easily distracted with books and toys and such, few hours at a time. Agree with me on that one?
So, Snackation is my plan of attack and it is what I adopted during our recent road trip to Montreal. Kids were all excited and counting days and minutes until the day of the adventure.
So, where do I go to replenish my arsenal to prepare for the big trip? Walmart of course! I know I would find everything I need to snack our way to Montreal. It was perfect timing too as I recently got an opportunity to partner with J.M Smuckers company. I knew exactly what to buy to make the ultimate snack for the adventure. Off I went to the aisle where I know all the Smuckers products are lined up.
I picked up the winners shortly- Smuckers Strawberry jam, Concord Grape Jelly and Peanut Butter. My plan was to make Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Sandwich. I will share the full recipe in another post on how my sandwiches turned out, but here is a sneak peak of recipe image in process to appease you until then 🙂
By the way, here are the ingredients I ended up buying for our Snackation adventure!
Once I decided on the main snack of the trip, rest was easy. I love Walmart for the fact that I can get everything I need under one roof. No more hunting for products in several different stores when you are pressing for time.
Plus the price tag!?No one can beat Walmart. You may nod your head with me on that one 😉 Make your summer enjoyable without worrying too much about the details.
Stop by at Walmart today, your “SNACKATION” destination, to stock up on go-to summer snack solutions.
