Beach balls aren’t just for the water any more. Case in point? This quick-to-fix summertime snack! While you take care of microwaving, little hands can help pour, mix and, of course, taste-test. It’s an ideal mix to munch on road trips, pool dates and can even pull together a beach-themed party spread when presented in a bucket with a little scoop for serving. Here’s how to make it! 

Start by pouring the cereal, pretzels and crackers into a large, microwave-safe bowl.
