A couple weeks ago I received a package of Zipzicles to try out and review. I must say, I was super excited. You can read about how Zipzicles was started here.
This summer my children and I attended VBS at our church. Since our church is a 30 minute drive and VBS ran from 8:30-12:30, I knew that I would need to pack their lunches. I attempted to make my own Zipzicle type packaging but it did not turn out well at all. I didn't take pictures because no-one needs to witness how bad they were.
So, a couple months ago I found Zipzicles and wanted to give them a try. It is such a simple idea and I cannot believe no-one thought of them sooner. One of the things I like most (besides being super convenient) is that the packages are BPA free and recyclable! I also like that I know exactly what my kids are eating because I make it myself.
Okay, so here is what I did. I made smoothies and put them in the Zipzicle packages.
All in all it took my about 30 minutes to make these. It would have taken less time but my 4 children kept coming in and asking if they could have one now! These will be extremely convenient throughout the week for the kids to have as a quick snack. I will definitely be buying more Zipzicle packages to keep on hand for when we have field trips.
I was thinking of other ways to use Zipzicles. Our family is hoping to start camping again next year. I'm thinking these Zipzicles will work perfectly for putting eggs in them. I will be able to use them for omlets, scrambled eggs, quick mixes, the possibilities would be endless and I wont have to worry about breaking eggs in the cooler.
And now, it's time for a giveaway! There will be 3 winners that will each receive one package of Zipzicles to try out at home.
