Are you scrambling to get back to school like we are? I feel like I am constantly behind and trying to catch up. Between doctor’s appointments, work assignments, travel engagements, and back to school shopping, this season has already been daunting. I am working on trying to get my home organized while still allowing room for FUN with my kiddo, and he hits the elementary school scene soon.
I am using his afternoons to inspire art and playtime for his weekdays. This after school coloring art station is easy to recreate in your own home, and you can stock up with Mott’s® items for a snack table everyone can enjoy.
I look for sales during the back to school season to get more for my dollar. Not only am I looking for school supplies, but I need shelf stable items like applesauce and apple juice for the year. Luckily Publix has amazing BOGOs that save my shopping budget throughout the year.
The BOGO offer at Publix is: Buy one get one free on Mott’s 100% Juice 64oz, Mott’s 100% Juice Pouch, 8 pk. 6.75oz and Mott’s Applesauce 6-pack cups!

After School Snack Station
Prepare a snack station packed with juice pouches and applesauce cups. They are both easily shareable if you have guests over, but they also make for simple servings for your children. My son can easily access and enjoy these snacks after school since I have a fridge stocked with them.
As for the art station, after a snack it’s easy to find time to get creative. I like to put out spiral notebooks or composition books with watercolors and crayons. It’s not too messy, but it allows for creativity. Sometimes my son wants to unwind in front of a screen after school, so I use the art and snack combination as a way for him to do something more productive!
The new Mott’s 100% Juice Pouch makes it simple to offer a snack time solution that is healthier and easy to take on the go! Mott’s juices taste good and are good for you. Each juice pouch of Mott’s 100% Apple Mango Juice provides 1 1⁄2 servings of fruit. Look for them in the juice aisle at Publix.
They look good in a lunchbox too!
