Are you looking for new traditions to start with your family? Part of being a mom is keeping old traditions alive, but also to start some of your own! Today, I am going to share five new traditions we enjoy as a family, and maybe you’ll consider adding some to your family traditions. Plus, a great dairy-free treat ball your kids will enjoy making.
5 New Traditions to Start with your Family This Year!
Weekly Game Night
We love to play games as a family! I have fond memories of play cards with not only my parents but also my grandparents. It is an excellent way to spend some time together and start new traditions.
Another fun game you can play with your kids is to have them guess which character they are the most like in the new SING© movie that comes out this fall! Just head here to start your fun game with them!
Volunteer at a Pet Rescue Center
We adopted a husky last year, and she was an amazing dog! Even though she didn’t work out for our family, it was a great learning experience for the kids. I know all the pet shelters would love extra hands or even regular donations of pet food or supplies. It is never too early to teach your children generosity!
Let Your Kids Pick Out Their Groceries
I love to let my kids pick out a few individual items at the grocery! It is so fun to see their tastes change and allow them a little independence. Plus, they are more willing to try new things!
Just like the other day when Noah decided to try a new cereal! Look at that happy face as he picked up some Golden Crisp® cereal. He knew I had a special treat planned, and you can find the recipe is below.
Just head over to Coupons.com for a great coupon to use on your next box of Golden Crisp® cereal (so you can make my fabulous recipe).
Family Fact: You probably didn’t know, but Noah has food allergies, and he has anaphylaxis reactions to Dairy Products and Tree Nuts. So I am always looking for great recipes I can tweak for him and will be sharing the recipe for Dairy-Free Cereal Treat Balls for Kids.
Family Movie Night
We LOVE to watch movies together as a family! The kids are now getting old enough to enjoy them without getting scared or needing to go to the bathroom a hundred times. We are looking forward to seeing SING© starting December 21st, 2016. My kids laugh their little heads off each time the trailer for SING© comes on!
Your child will learn so much from the cooking lesson you have! Kid’s don’t need to time-consuming or overly complicated recipes when you are teaching them. I prefer to pick simple fun items to help encourage their love of cooking. Go here for more tips teaching kids to cook.

Recipe: Dairy-Free Cereal Treat Balls for Kids
My Dairy-Free Cereal Treat Balls for Kids are so easy to make! Plus the kids can practice stirring food and even forming the treat balls.

3 Cups Miniature Marshmallows

Non-Stick Spray or Oil
Step 1: Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows, and continue to stir till they are completely melted. Remove from heat.
Step 2: Add Golden Crisp® Cereal and mix well.
Step 3: Shape into 1/2 cupfuls of cereal into 12 treat balls. Important: You will need to grease your hands with non-stick spray or oil before shaping or else they will stick to your hands! (Very Messy) The cereal mixture can be a little warm so watch out for younger kids!
Step 4: Place on wax paper lined tray or cookie rack to allow them to cool and set up. You can also decorate them!
