School may be back in session but summer is not over yet by any means. Thankfully one thing that is finished is messy snacks! See how we’re making sure to enjoy the warm weather with a mess free on-the-go adventure kit as part of this sponsored post for Socialstars with Jif™Bars. #TeamJif
I’ll be honest, I’m trying to stuff as much last minute summer fun into our lives as possible because although school started back last week, I know that while the weather is warm and the sun is shining there is still tons of fun to be had. Since I know that where I live winter comes in with a bang, I’m ensuring that we’re always prepared to turn any average day into a summer memory we’ll be sure to savor. In fact, I’ve made it my mission to always be ready for whatever fun happens to come our way with a mess free on-the-go adventure kit.
So how did I come up with this idea to help prepare us to make the most of every summer moment? Well, most of you know that we’ve recently moved and we’re having tons of fun exploring our new location. From streams to mountains to amazing open fields, our home has it all within walking distance. And as we’re learning our way around our amazing new surroundings, I’ve discovered that a simple walk or a trip to the store can suddenly turn into that perfect afternoon that is never forgotten.
At first the memory making moments caught me off guard. After all I was in such a routine of going and doing and simply following the steps that brought our days together that I had almost forgotten how to stop in my tracks and create moments that my children will always remember. But as we adjust to our new slower life outside the city limits I decided it was time to up my memory making preparation while ensuring that I’m always ready for those moments where time slows down and magic happens.
I started thinking about the things that make a moment special. I had visions of those times when we’re driving down the road and see a perfect place for an afternoon picnic. And then I decided to never miss those opportunities again. I started my preparation by grabbing a bag, some bottles of water and of course the boy’s new favorite mess free snack, Jif™ Bars.
Made with creamy Jif peanut butter that we all love, these Jif bars combine the classic childhood taste of peanut butter with a chewy granola bar for a snack that is sure to satisfy while at the same time fueling our impromptu fun!
With my Jif Bars in Creamy Peanut Butter Flavor and water added to our on-the-go adventure bag, I quickly grabbed some old clothes that the kids can change into from their school uniforms so that dirt doesn’t slow us down.
A few balls for throwing and a picnic blanket and my on-the-go adventure kit was complete. It had everything we needed to switch gears when a regular afternoon turns into something truly memorable.
Then all that was left to do was sit my on-the-go adventure bag by my front door. Anytime I head out, whether it’s to pick up the kids or simply for us all to make a trip to the store, I grab this trusted bag that has everything we need to have an adventure and an amazing snack on the go!
Naturally it didn’t take long for my idea to pay off. Because instead of writing down places we wanted to be sure to come back to when time allowed, we started seizing the moment and creating memories. We started stopping the car on the side of the road to check out a pond.
We began to look for a way to make everyday moments so much more. And with our on-the-go adventure kit we made sure that when those moments happen, we’re ready to make the most of them with a snack that takes an average afternoon and helps to turn it into something extraordinary!
As summer winds down and we settle into our new normal, I’m loving the ability to create special memories. To turn regular moments into unforgettable adventures. And to provide a snack that my kids can enjoy on the go without me having to worry about cleaning up messes and stopping the fun.
Because with Jif Bars as an essential part of my on-the-go adventure kit, I can always be sure that when adventure arise, hunger and messes don’t slow us down. Instead I simply reach into my bag, pull out a snack that enhances our adventures and makes our special moments just a little bit tastier!
And when the fun is done and it’s time to get back to our new and amazing reality, I can simply toss the mess free Jif Bar wrappers in the trash and know that while adventures with boys can often be messy, fueling their fun with a creamy, delicious, peanut buttery snack doesn’t have to be.
While the days are admittedly starting to get shorter, I’m ensuring we’re making the most of every warm, amazing moment. I start each day by always having my on-the-go adventure kit filled with Jif Bars ready to go. And then I simply sit back and let the extraordinary moments of life happen.
And as they do, I know that while life can still be busy and stresses will happen, for these last few summer days living will be about simply stopping in our tracks to make every moment sweet.
Where ever your end of summer adventures take you, be sure you’re prepared to turn ordinary moments into amazing memories. Start by creating your own mess free on-the-go summer adventure kit with Jif Bars and then slow down. Look around. And let life show you how ordinary moments can become truly unforgettable!
