Does anyone else struggle with getting their kids to eat veggies like I do? When I make eating vegetables fun, the kids can’t get enough. Now with school starting soon, I am plotting ways to spruce up their boring lunch boxes like these butterfly snacks in Ziploc® brand Snack bags with Easy Open Tabs.
I made these for our zoo trip yesterday, and they were a hit. I packed a little bottle of ranch dressing, and they ate all of their veggies. But, you can use this butterfly Ziploc® brand Snack bags with Easy Open Tabs idea for so much more, including storing the kids crafts or mini crayons!
Another mom hack I decided to try was a frozen sponge in a large Ziploc® brand Freezer bag with Easy Open Tabs to keep the food cool. It totally worked, and since I knew the sponge may leak a little bit, I put it in a Ziploc® brand Freezer bag with Easy Open Tabs. It kept my other foods from getting moist. The best part of using a frozen sponge to keep your food cool is that it will absorb most of the water once it starts melting.
All you have to do is soak the sponge, then place it in the freezer. When you are ready to use it, take it out of the freezer and place in a Ziploc® brand bag with Easy Open Tabs. Put it in your lunch box, and it will keep your food cool.
To get ready for our zoo trip, we headed over to our local King Soopers to do a little shopping. King Soopers is an affiliate store with Kroger, in case you have a Kroger near you. I seriously don’t think there is a store with a better view than this one!
I was able to get everything I needed for our day out including, the sponges, grapes, celery, blueberries, carrots, pipe cleaners and new Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs. I picked up the gallon-sized, Ziploc® brand Freezer and Sandwich bags with Easy Open Tabs since we literally can never have enough at our house.
If you’re shopping at King Soopers, they will be running a special sale on Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs from 8/9 – 8/30: $0.50 off regular retail so stock up while you can on the following Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs!
The Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs are normally in the paper towel aisle so look for them there!
For the butterfly snacks I got four different types of food, which was cut up celery, blueberries, grapes and carrots.
I enlisted a few of my favorite helpers to get our snacks together, and they were just as excited to make these as they were to eat them.
I put the snacks in the Ziploc® brand Snack bags with Easy Open Tabs and closed them. Then I got a pipe cleaner, and wrapped it around the middle of the bag.
Then I twisted the pipecleaner around about two times.
Lastly, if you want the “Antennas” to curl just wrap them around your finger.
Cute right??! These are also great for after schools snacks to give your famished kids after a long day of school or even a secret snack stuffed in your purse for church!
