Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur Snack Tray

The Good Dinosaur Snack Tray

Disney Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur released today! It’s an adorable animated movie about the friendship between a boy and an Apatosaurus named Arlo. My kids cannot wait to see it!


It looks like a super cute and fun little movie to go see as a family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Then, after you all watch the movie, come back and make this super healthy snack tray! Playing with your food is totally allowed – especially if you are making leafy greens that Apatosaurus’ like Arlo would love.

Buying Purple Tech from Verizon Can Help Save Lives #HopeLine

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/HopeLineĀ® from Verizon. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I hate that we have to have a month about this.
