Here’s a fun way to make a simple baggie full of crackers or cereal into a cute little butterfly.  Make up a bunch for after soccer practice, or part of a picnic or lunch bag.

 

What you'll need:

  • Sandwich size baggie

  • Clothespin

  • Butterfly face printout

  • Scissors

  • Laminator

  • Hot glue

  • Colored pencils

  •  

How to make it:

  1. Fill a sandwich bag about halfway full of your favorite snack. 

  2. Fold the zip section down and divide the snack within the baggie in half within the baggie.  Gather the middle section together and cinch with a clothespin. 

  3. Print out the butterfly faces and trim them out.  You can trim the faces out with or without the antennae and laminate.  If you trim without the antennae, you can add an antenna to your clothespin by attaching a 6” piece of pipe cleaner to the clothespin through the clothespin center and twisting in the center.  Curl the edges slightly to finish the antennae.   Attach a butterfly face to the front of the clothespin with hot glue.

 

 

That’s it!  Easy Peasy.  Here are some examples of types of baggie snack fillers:

  • Teddy Grahams

  • Fish Crackers

  • Checks mix

  • Grapes

  • Pretzels and raisins

  • Cereal

  • Pita chips

  • Carrot or celery sticks and ranch dip package

  • Fruit snacks

  • Pita chips and a package of hummus

  • Celery sticks and peanut butter package

  • Apple slices

  • Vanilla wafers

  • Cubed cheese and grapes
