Easy Mini Snack Stadium #GameDayGlory #Ad #CollectiveBias

Are you exited for the Big Game? Well I’m, I can’t wait to watch the game with all my family and have some healthy competition in the house. For this occasion I’m sure we are going to have a few friends and I need to be prepared with a fun, easy, and of course great theme for the day.

#GameDayGlory ingredients

Ok, to be super prepare for the game and have a fun snack stadium as a theme, first we need to go to Walmart, to find some of my favorites products and easy snack time favorites like, SNICKERS® FUN SIZE®, Diet Pepsi™, TOSTITOS® Original Party Size and TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa, yummy!


Well you know when it comes to snacking and party, better to be sure and have the right products on hand. Once you have all the products, and I bought a lot, because I know there’s always those “unexpected” friends that come at any time, and as a good host I need to be prepared.

I also love easy, simple and little things, and my impression of a snack stadium has that and more, my daughters help me choosing the materials and I have to be honest It look cute and easy to clean.

Is very simple, I use mini foil loaf pans for the sitting, and a squared foil pan to make the field, as a funny touch my daughter suggested that we use the mini Diet Pepsi™ for the lights.


I want to share with all of you that this was a difficult, super hard thing to build, nah, just kidding, it was very easy. We place the pans in position to make the sitting and the field, at first, I put one mini pan on top of the other but my oldest said that it did not look good, so we make 2 sittings of each side, and 1 on the front and back.


You can place the chips and the candy any where you like, but I think having a salty and sweet side works great. I use some guacamole and add-on the sides the TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa, it was Delicious! if you mix the two together. Have fun and involve the family with projects like this, if you need more ideas just click HERE


If you like my idea or want to share your favorite theme when it come to the big game. just leave me a comment below.

Whole Wheat Bean and Cheese Quesadilla #PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad

Well let me tell you, this back to school for us was crazy! First, the weather which was super hot in the mornings and awfully hot in the afternoons made it so impossible for my girls to keep up with all the new projects they had. Then our afternoons were so busy between homework, ice skating, and chores that we could not keep up.

#PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad 2

Fortunately, I always carry Nestlé® Pure Life® Water in my car, and having this great source in there gives me confidence the I can keep my girls hydrated and healthy all the time.

For us as a family, it is very important to maintain a good schedule on our water consumption. We not only have water in the car, we also carry our water everywhere. I have a bottle in my purse all the time, my husband keeps a stack in his office, and my girls carry at least 2 bottles a day to drink during school hours.

#PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad 3

I love to come home from Walmart where I buy all my Nestlé® Pure Life® and put some in the freezer. We love to drink very cold water, especially on a hot day!

#PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad

Another way I manage to have my girls drink more water is by making them a delicious and nutritious lunch, such as a good sandwich, wrap, or quesadilla with some fruit and water. I make sure it’s super good, delicious, and healthy, too.

Today I want to share with you this delicious and easy Whole Wheat Bean and Cheese Quesadilla. It’s the perfect lunch to make for our kids with some fruit and our favorite drink, Nestlé® Pure Life® Water.


  • 4 whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 cup refried black beans
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 apples cut into slices


Using one tortilla at a time, place 2 tablespoons of beans, 2 tablespoons of cheese and 1 teaspoon of cilantro in half of the tortilla, and place the other half on top.

#PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad 4

Heat up a skillet to medium low heat and spray with some cooking spray. Cook for about 3 minutes on both sides, or until crispy. Cut into any shape your kids love, and make some happy faces on their bottle of water.

#PureLifeRippleEffect #CollectiveBias #Ad 5

Serve with a mini water bottle and four or five apple slices.

This recipe makes 4 quesadillas.

Remember, beans contain fiber and iron which are good for our growing kids. Beans promote healthy digestion and iron is a nutrient for their blood. Cheese made with whole milk is a good source of calcium, and water keep our kids hydrated and helps with  healthy digestion, too.

I recently read a survey* conducted by Nestlé® Pure Life® in which moms and kids revealed many surprising insights about their hydration habits. I thought you’d find them interesting as well!

  • 97% of moms think making one healthy choice leads to making other healthy choices.
  • Kids who drink less than 4 glasses of water a day are more likely to request soda, juice, and sports drinks (76%).
  • Kids who drink 4+ glasses of water per day are more likely to frequently exhibit healthy habits, such as getting their own water when thirsty, eating their fruits and vegetables at mealtimes without reminders, and requesting healthy food and beverage options for school lunches.
  • Drinking water is one of the biggest “healthy habit” struggles moms have with their kids (38%), even more than struggles like “eat your fruit” (29%), “get enough exercise” (23%), and “eat your breakfast” (19%).

Here are some great tips from Robin Plotkin to help encourage your family to drink up more often!

  • Have cups, straws, lids and other drinking “equipment” available to provide to your kids to make drinking water more fun. Empower them to fill their own cups of water and praise them when they do.
  • Drink a cup when you wake up. Create a routine that involves drinking 1 cup of water upon waking. Simply leave a supply of disposable paper cups near the sink. Much like washing the face and brushing teeth, this will quickly become a regular part of the morning for each family member.

So let me walk you in this super easy process, the first step is to go to your nearest Walmart and buy all the materials needed. I personally recommend the MARS® chocolates, and the soda brand 7UP® and Sunkist®, then you can shop around by the decoration for Halloween section, where you will find these products and beautiful bags or boxes for this project.

I found in this section, these cute boxes with bags, which seemed perfect because they where the perfect size for my super cute monster can and some chocolates, of course don’t forget about the Printable “We’ve Been BOO’D”, you can find this fun and easy to follow printable here at BOO CENTER, where you can print your own is super easy just follow the instructions. Save $1.00 on TWO (2) 2L or 6pk 8oz cans of any flavor Sunkist® Soda, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, A&W®, Squirt®, or Sun Drop®

  • Cut out this “We’ve been BOO’d” sign.
  • Fold the “You’ve been BOO’d” greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together.
  • Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles.


For your craft, well I used the pumpkin boxes, and I add one monster can, some candy and the We’ve been Boo’d card and my daughters and I went to my friend’s house Dulce and left the goodies, at this point I don’t think she know who left the “You’ve been BOO’d” card but I’m sure they enjoy all the candy and sodas we place in there from door. I just hope they had fun just like we did.
