We’re gearing up for Back to School season and this year is a big one! A is off to the big K and we can hardly contain our excitement for the new school year.
One of my favorite times of day is the after school wind down. I wrap up the last of my work projects and A and I sit down to unwind and talk about our days. Sometimes we just chat and other times we play games that help him tell me about the new things he’s learned at school.
A’s favorite after school snack is Welch’s Fruit Snacks. His love for Welch’s runs deep, y’all, and full disclosure, I love them too! So yummy and fruit is the first ingredient! Welch’s Fruit Snacks are fun to eat and we love making it a part of our after school wind down activities like these free printables here:

Who doesn’t love a good game of tic tac toe? We’re usually fighting over who wins (& who gets the last bite of the fruit snacks, too! LOL) Yep, we’re definitely a competitive family over here. Nothing says snack time like a little friendly game of tic tac toe!
My go to snack for at home and for school lunches is Welch’s Fruit Snacks. Their snacks are made with R E A L fruit and it’s the first ingredient. It’s easy to toss in a bag for his lunch and I always have a few handy in my purse for when I’m out and about with the kids. You can find them at your local grocery store!
A loves to teach me the things he’s learned in school. I can’t wait to hear all about the new bits of knowledge in the coming months. It’s such a joy to see him develop a love for learning!
Recently, we’ve been doing a lot more activities with numbers and math. Utilizing our after school wind down time to do some reviews of school lessons is a great way for us to connect. I love that I can help him feel confident about the things he’s learning. And that we’ve figured out a way to make it fun and enjoyable by incorporating it into our snack time.
It’s definitely something I’ll continue to do as he transitions to elementary school in the fall. I can’t wait to hear the stories all about being a Kindergartner and his new school, teacher(s), and friends.
