Evangeline has developed an obsession for Blue’s Clues. Her and Miracle sing the songs and do the actions together (even though Evangeline can’t talk, she can sing the songs). She can also start the next episode on Netflix. It is safe to say that she is a Blue’s Clues addict.
The kids have been begging to make some ice pops that Steve and Blue make so I finally remembered to pick up bananas, and we tried them out. Turns out, they are super yummy, healthy, and easy. What more could you ask for? The kids can even do most of the prep themselves.

After everyone has washed up, give the kiddos a butter knife (assuming they are old enough and with direct supervision of course) and let them start slicing the banana. After it is sliced, have them put a banana slice into each ice cube spot. I found that if you put them in sideways (so that you have to squeeze it in there) it works better because then the banana holds the toothpick straight up. Then let them stick a toothpick into each banana.
Next, have the munchkins stir the orange juice (if you made it from concentrate like me). Pour orange juice into the ice cube tray over the bananas. Cover with plastic wrap, and freeze!
Evangeline ate three. Miracle isn’t a super fan of the banana in the middle, but she likes the frozen OJ and Axel loves them too. I even had one. These are going to be so refreshing in the summer (if it ever comes).
