My kids need to bring a snack every day to school, and like every good mother, I make my kids responsible for getting their own snack.
To make it easier, we have a snack bin. I throw away most of the containers that snacks come in. I dump the granola bars straight in the bin, I put the applesauce cups in the bin.
What isn't already individually wrapped, I wrap for them. I buy a lot at Costco. When I get home, I separate them into snack size bags and throw those in the bin.
When it is time to go out the door, my kids just reach in the bin and grab a snack! Plus, if you knew my G., you would know that he is a walking mess. I'd rather put the pretzels in the bag, then have G. I guarantee that half would be on the floor!
Just a little tip that makes getting out the door so much easier!
