Butterfly Snack Bag
Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages toddler

Whether you're packing a snack for a trip to the park or making a treat for your preschooler's entire class, these fluttery friends are sure to charm. The bags can be filled with any snack, though a mix that offers a blend of colors and shapes makes for a more interesting butterfly.

What you'll need

  • Clothespins
  • Glitter glue
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Small crackers, dried fruit, trail mix, or your choice of snack items
  • Snack-size ziplock bags
  • Pipe cleaners

How to make it

  1. For each bag, decorate one side of a clothespin (we used glitter glue). Glue two small googly eyes near the gripping end of the clothespin and let the glue dry.

  2. Put small crackers, dried fruit, trail mix, or whatever else you'd like into a snack-size ziplock bag until it's about half full. Seal the bag, cinch the middle with your fingers, and clip it with the clothespin.

  3. Butterfly Bounty Step 3

    Fold down the tips of a 4-1/2-inch length of pipe cleaner, then bend the entire piece in half. Clip the pipe cleaner in the clothespin.
