These butterfly snack bags are such a fun way to snack for the day! Life is full of surprises, so I decided to leave one of these butterfly themed snacks for the kids in their school lunches.
Can you believe that the kids are already going back to school?
Yes, it’s that time again to dust off the kids backpacks and start getting creative with school lunches! It has been such a great summer and just because there has been a change in the routine doesn’t mean that we have to miss out on the fun! Packing these butterfly snack bags in your child’s lunch is the perfect way to start off the school year with a smile.
How To Make Butterfly Snack Bags
You will need:
- 1/2 cup Honey Maid Teddy Grahams
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup fresh grapes
- 1 plastic zipper bag
- 1 standard craft pipe cleaner
- Note: For smaller children, use snack sized bags and cut the recipe in half
Ok, so let’s get started on these butterfly shaped snacks! Fill up your plastic zipper bag with the Honey Maid Teddy Grahams, blueberries and grapes. Zip it up, leaving a bit of space inside of the bag to manipulate it. Remove a few pieces if it’s too full, and make sure to let any extra air out of the bag.
Zipper side up, split the contents of the bag in half, creating a space down the middle of the bag. To form the body and antennas, fold pipe cleaner firmly and evenly down the middle of the bag, twist it a couple of times at the top to secure.
To curl the butterfly’s antennae, roll the ends of each of the pipe cleaners around the tip of your finger. That’s it!
I hope you love these butterfly themed snacks!
It’s important that we provide healthful snack options to our kids without skimping on the fun and flavor. I chose to use Honey Maid Teddy Grahams for these butterfly snack bags because they use real ingredients that I don’t mind them eating, adding fresh fruit makes this a great nutritional snack that they approve of!
