Butterfly Snack Bags
These Butterfly Snack Bags only take about 10 minutes to prepare, and can be customized with the snacks your kids prefer to enjoy.
The Butterfly Snack Bags Ingredients I used in this example are String Cheese Sticks, Chopped strawberries and blueberries shown, but any fruit of your choice would work – grapes, apples and/or oranges sliced small, etc., Veggie Straws (can use chips of your choice, or fresh veggies – baby carrots, celery slices), and Mini cheese or peanut butter cracker sandwiches.
The additional materials needed to put the Butterfly Snack Bags together are: Sandwich bags, Pipe Cleaners, Small jewels for eyes, Black sharpie marker, Glue, and Tape.
Use a pipe cleaner to evenly divide the sandwich bag into two sections. Wrap it a few times around the center, leaving the two ends facing up. Slightly curl the ends.
Open the sandwich bag and place fruit into one side of the bag. Place veggies, crackers, chips or another snack of your choice in the other side. Close the bag.
Take the top flap of the string cheese and fold it back. Tape to secure it in place. This will give the butterfly a rounded top. Glue two jewels on for eyes. Draw a smile on with the sharpie. Attach the “body” of the butterfly to the “wings” by placing the string cheese right over the center of the bag of snacks, and use a long piece of tape to secure the cheese in place.
