Kids Smoothie Bowl Recipe + End of School Year Traditions
The end of the school year is a time to celebrate. Time to applaud the kids’ efforts all year long. We’ve partnered with our friends at Horizon Organic today to share some of our favorite end of school year traditions. But first, our tradition this year involves a new twist on breakfast. When the kids wake up on their last day of school, why not make the day extra special with something fun?
We’ve created a kids smoothie bowl that the kiddos get to help make themselves. Blend up some fresh and frozen fruit, some Horizon milk and put the toppings in little bowls/board on the table.
Encourage the kids to create their own designs on the top of their smoothie bowl. This is such a fun and interactive way to get the kids excited about making good choices for breakfast and celebrate a big day in their lives.
Smoothie Bowl Recipe
I like to use fresh and frozen fruit, add milk for protein and ice if needed.
Makes 2 smoothie bowls (kid size):
- 5 frozen strawberries
- one banana
- 15 frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup milk
- splash of OJ
- ice cubes if needed
- Add some coconut water if too thick
- I like to throw in a bit of spinach too
Blend together and pour into bowl. Let the kids add topping to the smoothie bowl. We made a board with dried mangos, granola, berries and pieces of fresh peach. You could add coconut, chia seeds and more!
While we like to celebrate the big day with a special breakfast, we also like to do a little something special to recognize the accomplishments of the school year. Below, we are sharing some ideas that we have gathered from some friends on how they celebrate the last day of school.
End of School Year Traditions
Chalkboard Countdown – Use a chalkboard to create a End of School Year Countdown. Let the kids take turns marking off the final 20 days of school.
Run Through Banner – Our friend Heather and her neighbors make a banner for the kids to run through as they get off the bus on the last day of school. And it gets better, the parents toss water balloons at the kids too and spray silly string.
Popsicle Party – Throw a party at the playground for the kids and bring homemade or store-bought popsicles. It’s a simple way to celebrate.
Book Signing – Each year, bring the same book to your child’s teacher to sign and write a note to the child.
Kick off Summer with a Book – Another friend celebrates the end of the school year by picking out a new, special book for each of her kids.
