These easy snacks to make at home will be instant hits…easy for mom, yummy for everyone!

The hardest thing about being a parent is having to think of things to feed them every single day.

(Ok, ok, if that’s the hardest thing for you then count yourself lucky!)

Still, it’s a pain to try to think of something for them to eat 3 times a day.

And then, there’s the constant snacking.

Ugh!

Finding easy snack ideas to make at home that take no time to put together is a must.

Luckily, this list is full of super easy snack ideas that our kids love.

The Indoor S’more

Ever since I got my Sam’s Club membership, I can’t seem to come home without a huge tub of animal crackers.

They’re a hit every time.

But what makes them even better…is adding some mini marshmallows, some chocolate chips, and zapping them in the microwave for 10 seconds.

Fastest s’more ever…and sooooo good!

Kiwi Freeze

So my kids…who loooove kiwi so much they fight over it…

…suddenly stopped loving kiwi for no reason whatsoever.

So here I am with a tub of kiwi that no one wanted to eat.

I don’t know.

Anyway, I didn’t want it to go to waste. So I cut them all up and put them in the blender.

Then I poured it into a shallow plastic bowl and put it in the freezer.

Scooping out frozen kiwi is kinda like ice cream.  And who doesn’t like ice cream??

They totally ate it and asked for more!

You could do this with just about any kind of fruit, really.

Salami Rolls

Spread some cream cheese on your salami and voila!

My son actually thinks it’s a lot easier to use this kind of cheese, though.

Donuts

They’re not just for breakfast anymore!

(This one came from an Amish shop and it was the size of my face!!)

Oatmeal Bars

These easy oatmeal bars are about the simplest recipe ever.

Mix everything in one bowl, pour it into a Pyrex, bake for a while, and then devour the whole pan.

Smoothies

We love smoothies because you can use just about any kind of fruit…frozen or fresh.  Use whatever yogurt you have the complements the fruit flavor.  Add some ice if your fruit isn’t frozen, a dash of milk, and everyone’s happy.

Bonus Idea: Freeze smoothies into popsicles for another treat later!

Peanuts and Candy Corn

Ok, so you have to do this one in the fall. But it isn’t fall without it in our house!

(Tastes like a Baby Ruth candy bar…so good!)

Giant Pickles

Sam’s Club also has a huge jar of giant pickles for less than $5.  Perfect for kids…and maybe for their pregnant Mamas, too.

Soft Pretzels

Sometimes I don’t think about having soft pretzels at my house. They seem like a concession stand thing.

But trust me…they’re way cheaper if you grab a box from the store for your freezer.

Or, if you’re feeling squirrely, try this recipe for homemade soft pretzels.  (It’s actually easier than you’d think.)
