After School Snacks

As I've mentioned before, my kids are involved in after-school activities, ranging from running, soccer, youth group, and Spanish club (soon to begin), plus my oldest goes to a couple other clubs. They need something to eat between school and activity time, so I pack them little snack kits some of those days.

Even if your kids (or you, or significant other) just come straight home, it's handy to have a snack ready to go.

Here's Bayberry's snack for today.

In a Tupperware sandwich holder, I made a frame out of grapes and a peanut butter tortilla. Strawberry eyes, a grape nose, and orange mouth. Simple, small, and cute.


  1. Love it! I'd love to hear any other ideas that you have. I'm getting better with lunch after reading your blog, but I still stink with the after-school snacks.

  2. I'll post them from time to time -- whenever I think of a new one, for sure. I try to get either peanut butter or cheese in after school snacks for their protein. And I try to keep them small so they don't ruin their appetites for dinner.
