We’re in full-swing summer vacation here, full of swimming, dance camps, family visits, parks and a dozen other things. I was hoping for a more laid-back summer, but I feel as if we’re running around as busy as during the school year! One thing that’s been super nice, though, is I made a neat little system so I don’t have to worry about the kids during snack time, especially when we’re on the go for longer than expected! Today I’m sharing some fun with you for Easy Summer Snacking & Printable Snack Jokes – because laughing kids are much better than grumpy, hungry kids.
Did you see those fantastic Disney guys there? That’s because GLAD sandwich and snack bags now feature your favorite characters – what kid wouldn’t LOVE snacking with their heroes (or villains)? Each box comes with 4 different characters/designs.
For my ‘super secret and amazing‘ system I put into place this summer for easy summer snacking, you’ll need to make a quick stop into your nearest Kroger store. Stock up on these fantastic baggies, choosing whichever ones are your kid’s favorite movies or characters, as well as your family’s top snack choices, like Hidden Valley Ranch products – I use the to-go cups all the time.
At the start of each week, get out enough baggies to cover snack for each kid for the coming 5-7 days. i.e. If you do snack 1x per day, and have 2 kids, you’d get out 10 baggies for the 5 weekdays. Pull out your snacks, and don’t forget to CLICK HERE and HERE to print our Summer Snack Jokes.
There’s two sheets, with 6 different joke cards on each one. I did a bunch of bright colors since – hey- it’s summer! I tried to stick to summer-related jokes, making it more fun. Your kids can enjoy reading them to each other (or having you help read, depending on their age) for a little attitude ‘pick me up’ during the day.
Divide your snacks into the Disney branded Glad bags, staple (or tape) a joke to each bag, then store them as needed – in the fridge or pantry, depending on the snack contents.
If you’re on the run for snack time that day, just grab the bags you need and head out – it’s that easy! No more rushing to get everyone ready and forgetting a snack – and hungry kids (or moms) don’t make for a happy errand. These baggies are perfect because they make it easy and quick, plus the kids LOVE snacking on foods that their favorite characters approve of (why else would they be on the bags, right?).
Even though it’s not Back to School time – yet – it’ll be here before we know it! I’m so excited to use this system during THAT busy time as well, to make the morning rush to school that much easier. I’m all about doing a tiny bit of work at the start of the week, then not worrying about it for days. Not only for snacks, but these bags will make their lunches extra special – now they can take their favorite characters to school with them! Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share more fun printable jokes when school time rolls around 🙂
Which Glad sandwich and snack bags will YOUR kids be most excited about?
