CRAFT: Kids snack organizers

For our trip to Hawaii I wanted the kids to have a cute easy to use snack organizer... that wouldn't cost much and would last for hours on a plane... These worked great!

Super fun and easy! 

All you need is:
 *about 1 fat quarter of fabric(or two halves for coordinating fabrics) depending on the size you make, 
*snack or quart sized zip lock baggies(with zippers-easier for the kids)
*A closure:Velcro like mine, or a button loop closure, or no closure if you prefer.

1) Cut fabric to size. It needs to be at least twice as long as the baggie size you chose, preferably twice as long plus 2 inches to provide for the flap closure.

2) Lay fabric back facing out(like sewing a seam for a skirt)... sew all three sides and leave fourth side open.

3) Turn inside out, sew shut. 

4) Take a handful of Ziploc baggies(I did 5) and lay them with the zippers at the end of the fabric.

5) Sew on Velcro tabs to ends, fold over to make sure they align correctly. Add any embellishments- we did ruffles for the girls.

 6) ADD SNACKS!!! Eat and Enjoy!

Once the bags wear out or are dirty, simply tear them out and sew a few new ones in! So easy! The rest of it can be thrown in the wash too!

**You could also use this for crayons and markers. Think Sunday church activities. Help keep the kids quiet:) That is one of the hardest things to do in our family! We are noisy!
