Your kids can only eat so many pretzels. :). Here are 5 snacks, easy enough for kids to make, that will give them energy to finish their homework and won't leave them bouncing off the wall once it's done.
Brown Paper Popcorn
Microwave 1/3 cup popcorn in a brown paper bag (folding down the corners of the bag so it doesn't open) for about 2.5 minutes. When popping slows down, remove. Be sure to monitor so nothing burns.
Semi-Homemade Pop Tarts
Unroll a can of crescent rolls, keeping them as rectangles. Pinch the seems closed. Spoon about 1 tablespoon jam in the center of rectangle, leaving about 1/4 inch empty along the edges. Place another rectangle on top and crimp edges with a fork. Bake at 425 for about 8-10 minutes.
