One of my favorite traditions as a kid was El Dia de los Niños! I religiously observed this holiday. I knew I would get toys and have a fun day with my parents. I tried milking it every year, but sadly when I was a teenager, it just wouldn’t fly. Thankfully, now that I’m older I have a niece and a nephew that I can enjoy this super fun holiday with!
El Dia De Los Niños is more than just celebrating kids being kids, it’s about creating memories out of something small. My niece and nephew are the funnest kids around. They’re funny and sassy and always keep me on my toes.
They’re at the edge where every moment becomes a great memory and even something small like making snacks becomes a fun activity! My love language is quality time, so I am so glad that they also love to spend time together and have laughs. My niece is the type of kid that enjoys coloring and will give with a lot of feeling and my nephew has energy for days. I love the memories we make together because toys will always be forgotten, but the fun moments will never be forgotten.
Here’s a way to have some fun with a delicious Lucky Charm recipe, which you can easily buy at Walmart!
- Lucky Charms Marshmallows
- Pretzels (Stick or Regular)
- Candy Melts
- Pick out the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms and put in separate bowl.
- Mix pretzels, M&Ms, and marshmallows in a new bowl.
- Melt candy melt cups of your choosing.
- Spread out the pretzel mix and lay it flat on a large plate or flat pan.
- Start drizzling melted candy melt all over the pretzels and start adding the Lucky Charm marshmallows and sprinkles.
- Let sit for 15 minutes or until the candy melt has hardened.
- Once hard, break pieces and put in serving bowl and enjoy!
