how to make butterfly snack bags
It’s a pretty easy project that makes a big statement once in the lunchbox and your kids will love filling up the baggie with 2 types of snacks, one snack per side of the “wings.”
Check out more kid snack ideas:
Cut the scrapbook paper around the clothespin. You could also paint them if this is too advanced for toddlers.
Cut the pipe cleaners to 3″ then curl the ends to look like antennas.
Glue dot or hot glue the paper onto the clothespins and then glue the antennas onto the mouth of the clothespin.
I think the googly eyes make this project!
Glue them on as well then let your kids simply fill the baggies then twist and pin!
You’ll see we filled one side of our butterflies with something salty like cheese square or multi grain crackers and something sweet like fruit snacks.
