Travel Snack Packs

Feeding and entertaining kids while travelling can be a challenge. I like packing lunches and snacks to take with us because it is much more economical and convenient than grabbing food "on the go". For our upcoming family trip to Florida, I packed some fun travel snack packs for my boys to take in their backpacks.

I started with a storage box from the dollar store, and I packed each section with some things that I had in my cupboard and some special "vacation treat" purchases.

I included things like: cereal, pretzels, crackers, gum, and sweet treats.

I finished by labelling my boys' travel snack boxes with their names.

Cute, right? I think this is a really fun way to pack snacks for a special trip. Do you think your kids would enjoy these travel snack boxes?

  1. How did these work out? I picture snacks all over the floor of the plane/car etc. as my boys open them! They look quite handy. :)

    1. I thought that might happen, but there was no spillage. It might be an issue for younger kids, but my boys (6, 8, and 10) did great!
