Here’s an addicting Chex party mix idea: use pretzel goldfish crackers, ranch dressing mix, lots of cereal (just for the halibut I tried some Kix with the Chex, really got crazy in here ha), and baby goldfish crackers, seasoned with parmesan cheese and ranch. I made a big batch in a 12×19 inch foil pasta/roasting pan, and baked it in the oven. Here’s how it turned out…. And if you have other tasty snack mix recipes like this, let minnow. Get it?!? Oh fish puns.

I love love love anything buffalo. Here’s a non-fat buffalo shrimp dip I made, lightened up with Greek yogurt. It has only 4 ingredients so it’s super quick and easy. You can serve it with crackers, wasa flatbreads, in lettuce wraps, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl ha. The entire bowl is just 5 WW+ points (or 2 “old” WW points).

Skinny Buffalo Shrimp Dip - just 4 ingredients and NO fat. Only 130 cal for the entire bowl. Yay for nonfat Greek yogurt.

jelly fish kid craft art project

The kiddos & I came up with a fun and easy ocean craft, inspired by a jellyfish song by Nancy Tucker that was on a CD we checked out from the library (I think it’s creepy when she whispers “jeeelllly fiissh” but the kids think it’s HEE-larious).

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • paper cupcake liners
  • googly eyes
  • crepe paper
  • glue
  • construction paper
  • crayons or makers

WHAT YOU DO:

Cut or rip the cupcake liners in half. Decorate with crayons/markers (or use liners that are already patterned). Attach strips of crepe paper on the back for tentacles, then glue the “jellies” on the paper and add googly eyes.
