20 Summertime Snack Recipes To Make Your Kids

Now that we’re in the thick of summer, kids are out of school, playing outside (hopefully) all day, and eating you out of house and home! Although My son is still a toddler, I can definitely remember summertime as a kid and constantly coming in the house for a cool snack, or a boost of energy so we could go back outside and play another hour of street hockey. Man, I wish I had that type of energy today. Why parents can’t have the energy to match their children is a cruel joke.

But I digress.

Anyways, I put together a list of some great snack recipes that you’ll want to make for the kids to keep them cool and full of energy all summer long!
