This past Saturday I hosted a Miles From Tommorowland Themed party.  As part of the space/astronaut theme, I thought Fruit Rockets would be a fun way for the kiddos to eat their fruit. With Strawberries and Cantaloupe I picked up at BJ’s, I along with the help of my friend Erin, created Fruit Rockets.  Not only were they super easy to make but they were also a hit!

Fruit Rockets

Fruit Rockets


  • Large Strawberries
  • Cantalope pieces
  • Medium Sized Marshmallows

*You’ll also need kabob/skewer sticks, which I cut in half.


  • Slice large strawberries horizontally into three pieces.
  • Trim 2 long sides of each piece cantaloupe to form a rocket tail shape.
  • Thread the skewers as shown in the photo.
  • Serve chilled.

* Depending on the size of the marshmallow, you may need to cut it in half.

Don’t Toss the Tops: Box Tops for Back-to-School

BJ’s Wholesale Clubs will feature General Mills items that include more Box Tops on specific items than other grocery stores. For example, BJ’s two pack Honey Nut Cheerios has a total of 13 Box Tops points. Each box has one Box Top located on the top of the box, plus 3 extra Box Top points, and the ability to get 5 more e-Box Tops by entering the code listed on the box on BJ’s microsite (the 5 points covers both boxes).

From food, basic supplies and clothes to tech and food items, BJ’s has everything you need for back-to-school.
