It can be tough to get my twins to eat healthy snacks. I often find them asking for sweets – cookies, cupcakes, candy, and other not-so-good-for-you foods. I did find that there is a secret weapon – Tree Top Applesauce Pouches. Tree Top asked me to share with my readers the benefits of having Tree Top Pouches in your family’s pantry – and how Tree Top is helping our newest generation take care of our environment with the Raising Good Apples campaign.
Because the applesauce is in a squeezable pouch I don’t have to worry about a spoon. Or messes! I can grab a couple of pouches as we are heading out the door for school or play dates and not get any complaints from my two finicky children.
Not only at Tree Top Applesauce Pouches easy, nutritious, and delicious – Tree Top is also committed to raising top quality fruits to create the best products for families to enjoy together. Tree Top is teaming up with KidsGardening.org to help change the world by getting kids involved in gardening and sustainability through our community and schools. For every purchase of Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches, Tree Top will donate a dollar to KidsGardening.org to help fund community garden projects and raise good apples across the country.
Because we were inspired by Tree Top’s commitment to gardening and getting outdoors, my kids and I decided to make a bird feeder using reclaimed goods! To make one yourself you will need:
- A milk carton (or any beverage carton)
- craft or popsicle sticks or wooden dowels
- pipe cleaners or twine
- bird seed
- a craft knife or sharp knife
Clean the carton throughly with hot water and let dry. Then simply cut triangles out of each corner of the carton about 4 inches up. Cut a slit large enough to slide the craft stick through to create a perch for the birds to sit on. Use the pipe cleaners twine, or yarn for a hanger and fill with birdseed, then hang outside for the wild birds in your neighborhood to enjoy! We get lots of finches here and the kids love watching them fly around, so bringing them closer to our porch is a great way to learn about how birds beautify our back yards.
You can find Tree Top Applesauce Pouches on the shelves of every major store! Also be sure to check out KidsGardening.org and show your creativity with a fun project!
