Personalized Snack Containers

Last week we went on vacation.  And it was super.  But getting there took a five-hour car ride.  That was not entirely super.  I knew that snacks were going to be important for the kids and did not relish the thought of lugging eight different snacks in bags just to keep the kids from screaming 'ARE WE THERE YET?' until mommy's eyes bulged out of her head.

I bought some craft organizers for a few bucks...

Added some vinyl to the front because there's nothing worse than hearing "He took my stuff" from children.

And filled them with snacks: granola bars, cereal, fruit snacks, cheese crackers...

And when every compartment was filled, we started our journey.  With full bellies.

Next time though, I'll have to make one for the hubs.  'Cause he ate my chocolate Cheerios.

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Great idea. While I didn't make hubby, mom, dad, and me individual containers, I did share my cheerio mix with them. Dad was surprised that it would soothe his desire for peanuts. hehehe

  2. A fantastic are so cleaver. Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a GREAT idea. It's visual and accessible. I am proud of you for sharing. I am more of a hoarder, I have a hard time parting with my food :)

  5. My kids would have had them empty in about 20 minutes and I would have had to hear them whining for the other 4 hrs and 40 minutes. That is if it didn't spill within the first 5 minutes. Hats off to your boys. :)

    Just picked up those organizers for $2 at Walmart last night if anyone is looking for them.

  6. Great idea and I have twin 5 year olds and we are taking our first real family vacation in August and it's like a 15 hour car going to do this and make doubles.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
