Family Breakfast #11: Overnight Oats and a Math Game

Posted on: August 20th, 2020 by Bri DeRosa

We hope you’ve been enjoying our family breakfast series! We have posted new ideas for morning-ready food, fun and conversation each week during the summer of 2020. As the new school year starts in some areas of the country — either in person, through distance learning or in a hybrid model — families need plenty of ways to start the day on the right foot.

A morning ritual doesn’t have to be fancy or take a lot of time to be meaningful. If you only have a few minutes to spend together, a quick make-ahead breakfast option and a simple game are the just-right solution for a family meal that gets you going in 10 minutes or less. This week, we’re sharing an overnight breakfast recipe and a fun basic math game to get everyone ready to learn for the day!

This Week’s Family Breakfast: Food

Overnight oats with peanut butter and bananas strike all the right notes in the morning. If you like, you can top them with crushed nuts or even a tiny sprinkling of chocolate chips to make breakfast extra-special in no time.

“Going to Boston” is a simple, classic dice game that reinforces basic math skills, but is fun to play even if you’re more into Algebra than addition.

Have a fun, positive conversation about school and learning with these questions!
