Super cute butterfly snack ideas
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! If you are looking for fun ideas for snack bags, 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 the following materials to make these DIY snack bags for school:
- 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
Instructions for DIY snack bags for kids
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.
Add a pipe cleaner to make the butterfly body and antennas
With the zipper side facing up, split the contents of the bag in half, creating 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. Stretch the pipe cleaner to arrange the antennas the way you want them to look. That’s it!
I hope you love these butterfly-themed snacks!
