We have officially kicked off the New Year with fun and creativity thanks to Julius Jr. and his favorite chef, Sheree! Julius Jr. is a new animated series on Nick Jr. that is based on the Paul Frank family of characters that have been shrunk down to preschool size. We received our very own Julius Jr. aprons and a few crafts supplies to help us decorate and personalize our aprons before the party moves into the kitchen.
My kids were so excited to color their aprons with the Crayola fabric markers and they really liked using the Julius Jr. stamps all over their aprons! Our friend stopped by to join in on all the fun and decorated her own apron. We will definitely be using our aprons again and again for all of our future crafts projects and baking adventures.
Once our aprons were ready, it was time to get in the kitchen to make a healthy snack! We decided that fresh fruit and yogurt smoothies would be the perfect treat. I prepared strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherry yogurt, apple juice and peach juice for the kids to use in their smoothies. They worked as a team and made sure all of the ingredients made it into the blender.
The smoothies were delicious and the kids really enjoyed making their own after school snack. They even saved a smoothie for Dad! Make sure you watch Julius Jr. and all of his friends every Sunday on Nick Jr. We are looking forward to all the great things to come from Saban Brands in 2014!
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. As a Saban Brand-Bassador, I was provided with a craft kit to decorate our Julius Jr. aprons. These are just my two cents!
