Healthy Snacks for End of Year School Parties

Is it Summer yet?  Oh yeah, not for three more weeks.  This is the first time since my kids started school 9 years ago that school doesn't end until June and I am trying my hardest not to mentally check out.  (I am starting to rethink how much I loved having that full week off over Thanksgiving though!)

And the hard part is that there is still a lot of IMPORTANT stuff left to do like finals, playoffs, end of year parties, and graduation!  Maybe that is why I am so ready for Summer!

My sister-in-law sent me a text asking for ideas for a healthy snack for the end of the year class party.  I told her to bring a 10 pound bag of apples.  But in case you are looking for something a little cuter (but still on the easy enough to pull off the last day of school side, here are some cute ones that won't break the bank or your will to live.

My first choice would be these cute butterfly bags from Squawk Fox.  You can fill them with anything and if you let your kids decorate the clothes pins they are relatively easy.  (I would even leave off the cute eyes as a last minute sanity saver.  She has a great tutorial on her site on how to put them together.


5 Patriotic Pies [Flag Pies]

Stars and Stripes Pie from Woman's Day

There may be nothing more American than apple pie, but when it comes to the 4th of July, you need a patriotic dessert with a little more color...or at least some stars and stripes!  I also don't like apple pie, so that might be the real reason I love all of these fun 4th of July pies!  If you have some serious pie skills, you can try out this stars and stripes pie from Woman's Day.


Easter Bunny Salad

I have already picked up a package of French Palmiers from Costco to make my favorite Easter salad. You can check out this cute salad and the gorgeous cabbage centerpiece that goes with it over at One Charming Party.
