Snack Shack Pack {for kids on the go}


Crank up the tunes, break out the snacks, it’s CARPOOL SEASON!

We have transitioned into full swing spring and with 4 kids in sports, that means we are in the car a lot!  That also means we are often out for hours at a time.  Since my boys eat every 5 minutes, they are asking for snacks as soon as we leave the driveway.  For those of you with boys with hollow legs, you know what I’m talking about.  

Snack Shack Packs are my solution.  I take those handy plastic containers and label the lids with my kids’ names.  In goes the snacks for the day:

Ideas for snack contents:

nuts, popcorn, apples, tangerines, orange slices, granola bars, applesauce, yogurts, go-gurts, fruit snacks, celery sticks with peanut butter, raisins, pretzels, dry cereal, protein bars, gatorades, chocolate covered almonds, beef jerky, beef sticks, cheese sticks, etc.

I pack these on practice days when there is little transition time between school and practice, and also on game days when we’ll be out for much of the day.
