Before heading out on a recent excursion to the Liberty Science Center, I decided to pack a few goodies for the ride there and back. I knew we couldn't bring food into the venue, but we had the flexibility to eat in our car before we entered and on the drive home.
I packed the basic essentials: water, granola bars, Pirate's Booty, baby carrots, and apple slices. But we needed something more. Something a bit more substantial. I had the perfect thing: Stonyfield Yo-Kids SMOOthies.
I make smoothies on a daily basis for my kids. In fact, one of our favorites is a blueberry banana smoothie, but the homemade ones are difficult to transport. You must drink them immediately or else they'll spoil and separate. But Stonyfield YoKids SMOOthies are perfect for packing up for on-the-go travel.
I grabbed an insulated bag, a 6-pack of SMOOthies, and a container of Stonyfield Blends for myself, and we were on our way!
As part of my participation in the Stonyfield Yo-Getter brand ambassador program, I received coupons for free SMOOthies to faciliate this giveaway. I also received a gift card which covered travel expenses and admission fees for the Liberty Science Center.
We weren't on the road long before someone was hungry! The YoKids SMOOthie was the perfect cross between drink and food to keep her satisfied.
We had an hour's long drive ahead of us. Rather than stick their heads in their iPads, they played a game of cards. Stonyfield sent us a deck of cards, "52 Fun Things to do in the Car". What a fun way to pass the time. It was so much more fun than listening to music...or listening to the girls argue. Yes, it happens.
One of my favorite cards was the "One Word Stories". Someone starts the story by saying one word, such as "A". The next person says the next word, "girl". And the game continues. Pretty soon we had "A girl who had blue eyes and a big dog. She wanted to go to the city, but her brother wanted to go to the beach..."
After a few Stonyfield YoKids SMOOthies and a few other assorted snacks, it was time to go into the Liberty Science Center. We had been here several times before, and it's always a fun visit. The exhibits change every few months, and we were excited to see what was new since our last visit.
Our first stop was the BASF Kids Lab, an interactive chemisty lab where children have the opportunity to learn about cause and effect. The girls loved this exhibit.
Once the goggles were on, it was time to see how porous a piece of chalk is.
The Liberty Science Center also has a fun Curious George exhibit that continues through May 5, 2013. It was a bit young for my girls, but if you have children ages 5 and under, it's worth checking out.
After a long day, and much time logged learning about science, medecine, architecture, and tecnology, it was time to get back on the road. We were hungry, and we were beat. There was no way I was spending $40 for the three of us to eat in the cafe.
We headed to the car and grabbed our Stonyfield yogurt and YoKids SMOOthies. They hit the spot! The kids were happy. I was happy. It was a great end to a fabulous day.
