Family Time with Goldfish

Our family is notorious for being on the go. We are always off to visit grandparents, practice at the gym, or participate in an activity. This winter though, we've really made staying at home a priority. We're all about hibernation right now. And the best part of hibernating? Snacks. 

Our favorite snack right now is Pepperidge Farm Goldfish. It's a snack that Ella absolutely loves and it's something that I feel good feeding her. Each Goldfish cracker is always baked with real cheese, has no artificial flavors or preservatives, and has 12g of whole grains in each serving! And if we're being honest, I love to eat them too. 

One way we've been spending family time while snacking is by practicing Ella's counting. Our goal for the end of her Pre-K year is to be able to count forwards to 20 and backwards from 10. Goldfish make practicing a lot more fun! I simply have her count out 20 Goldfish, then we practice counting them. Then, we separate the Golfish crackers into two groups of 10 - one group for her & one for me. Finally, we eat our Goldfish as we count backwards from 10! It's such a simple, yet fun way to spend time one on one with Ella. 

Another great way to spend time with your kids on cold winter days? Make a video together! Even the simplest smart phones have the capability to make awesome stop motion videos these days & Goldfish is offering a great incentive for you to get creative. $5000! Yes, you could win $5,000 for creating your very own stop motion video. To get all the details, just click here
