I wanted to share a cute little way to present snack to your little..the snack butterfly. I searched “cute snack ideas for kids” (literally) in doing reconnaissance for my eldest’s school snack; he was kid of the day today. More on that later. Anyway, I googled that and saw these cute butterfly snacks with a clip like this:
So, as the snack should include a dairy, starch and fruit/veg per the school, I decided to change the clip to string cheese (and I had a new package in my fridge already- score!). In said modification, I had to sort of improvise…and decided I only wanted to get the supplies at the cvs where I could walk to. I grabbed super glue, rubber bands and store brand zip locks with no actually “zipper” just the regular closure. I made these:
Then you just fill by pulling apart the zip and then re-zipping. I know. Complicated 😉
So I superglued the string cheese to the rubber band
And they look cute-ish. I do feel the antennae should be pipe cleaners but CVS did not have. 🙂 Really. Anyway, my big guy and his friends enjoyed this little snack, so I wanted to share.
PS: I think maybe they look more like dragonflies?
