Five years ago this month, I started blogging. It is hard to believe that it has been that long!
Five years ago, I was at home almost every day taking care of my youngest kids and babysitting. I spent hours learning how to blog, and I did many things wrong. However, many of those early crafts and posts are what still bring the most traffic to Creative K Kids! Now I’m in a totally different stage of my life. We have moved from Illinois to Florida, my husband is a head pastor, and I teach part-time plus do many ministries at our church.
I no longer have hours to put into Creative K Kids, but I can’t let it go either. I have put on this blog some of our family’s favorite recipes that I want my kids to be able to find easily one day. I have put memories of our family’s favorite activities on our Scattered Saturdays. I want my kids to be always able to go back and look at those memories. Just last week, my kids were looking at many of those posts.
But I don’t have the time to put into it like I used to do, so what can I do? Well, my second daughter discovered she likes to play around putting movies together from pictures. She also likes to bake and cook. So I told her for every recipe she prepares and then makes a video of it for Creative K Kids, that I will pay her $5. That’s a great deal for me! She was fine with it though as she gets to make a little money plus do a couple of things she likes to do too!
Here’s a fun picture of 3 of my kids from one of my first blog posts.
The one eating the popsicle in the video below is the baby in the picture. And the one that made the popsicles and put together the video is my daughter on the right — before phase 1 & 2 of braces! She’s in some pictures in the video too.
Here’s the first recipe that she made a video for:
Healthy Homemade Popsicles
- 2 cups Greek unflavored yogurt or vanilla yogurt
- 2 cups fruit I used about 1 1/2 cups of strawberries and 1/2 cup of bananas.
- 2 -4 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla
Put yogurt in the blender followed by rinsed fruit (hull strawberries/slice big fruit up). Add 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of honey.
Add more honey and vanilla to desired taste. If you use plain yogurt, you may need more honey.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for 5 hours before eating.
