The end of school is officially here and this past week we spent time with our family out of town! This meant my kids got to spend tons of play time with their cousins. It also meant that I needed to have lots of healthy snacks to keep them full and plenty of crafts to keep their minds fed! With a little creativity we made use of Juicy Juice Juice and the Juicy Juice boxes for snacks and playtime! We used the Juicy Juice Orange Tangerine Juice for some yummy Tangerine Cream Biscuit Muffins and the Juicy Juice boxes to make our own Circus Puppet show!
I love Juicy Juice since it’s 100% juice! I found the Juicy Juice at Walmart and noticed that there were coupons for Crayola items inside specially marked Juicy Juice Box package labels and on the labels of the Juicy Juice 64 oz. Juice Containers! There were also $1 off Juicy Juice Instant Redeemable Coupons applied to specially marked packages of Crayola Color Wonder and My First Crayola products! I decided to buy Juicy Juice and some fun Crayola art supplies for the kids.
When I got back to my mom’s house the kids’ eyes lit up when they saw what I bought!
We first made the muffins since they were hungry. These muffins were so good! It wasn’t just the kids eating them either!!! Good thing they were super easy to make!
Tangerine Cream Biscuit Muffins
- 2 1/4 cups Biscuit Mix
- 1 cup Juicy Juice Orange Tangerine Juice
- 2 Tbsp . Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil or Coconut Oil
- For Icing:
- 2 Tbsp . Juicy Juice
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Spray muffin tin with cooking spray and preheat oven to 400. Mix ingredients together in a large bowl until mixture is smooth. Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool and pour icing on top.
- For the icing just combine ingredients. Use less or more sugar for a pour-able consistency.
Of course they drank some Juicy Juice with their muffins too! We ended up saving the juice boxes for a craft. We opened them up and cleaned them out. I try to teach my kids that they shouldn’t waste anything that can be used. I love the idea of using Juice Boxes for craft time!
My kids are so creative and they made these Juicy Juice boxes into circus animals and a clown! This was a great way for them to learn about the different animals in a circus. They covered the Juicy Juice boxes with Crayola construction paper and colored them with Crayola markers. They used pipe cleaners to make the faces for the animals and hen they taped them to a paper straw. Next they made their own circus act using the puppets they made!
You can see part of their circus act on Instagram (it’s hilarious)! It was so cute and fun!!! It definitely was a great time spent with their cousin and everyone was fed and happy! 🙂
