Fall is always a busy time for our family. With three young kids – we’re always going from activity to activity. While we try not to overschedule our kids individually, the reality is that we are often always on the go. It can make for a long afternoon, after-school, or weekend for my kids and other kids on their teams. I kept this in mind when I was planning out some snacks this fall for the teams. I wanted to put together snack bags that they could grab-and-go with after the game.
These easy to create bags are made from stuff you probably have around your house – or can pick up on the cheap at the craft store.
What You Need:
Regular Lunch Bags
Scrapbook paper (any design or theme)
Twine – if you want to punch holes to tie bag shut
Snack of Choice
That last one can be the most challenging with kids! You have to be mindful of keeping choices healthy, allergies and the convenience of eating it. I like to stock up on the snacks to create for the season – and so heading to Acme for their Stock Up Sale (going on now!!) was a great decision.
With so many things on sale, I headed right for some of my favorite General Mills products to create the best snack bags. I picked up Honey Nut Cheerios (12 oz) for $1.88 and Nature’s Valley Granola Bars for $2.48 – making it affordable to stock up for the whole season. I knew I could include a Nature’s Valley Granola Bar (the kids love these!) in the bag as is, but wanted to create a snack mix with the Honey Nut Cheerios. I chose to combine the Honey Nut Cheerios with some dried cranberries, pretzels, and lightly sweetened almonds.
Our team likes to keep things simple, so I stopped there – but you could add yogurt covered raisins, small chocolate chips, or perhaps another cereal.
Simply mix it all together…
….and bag it up.
Assemble your bags by adding a sticker to the front, filling with a piece of fruit, the Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Mix and a Nature’s Valley Oats n Honey Granola Bar.
Everyone gets to take one post-game! Whether they have to jet off to another game or activity – or they can stay to chat with friends, this is the perfect fall sports snack!
