Butterfly Snack Bags: Transform Snack Time Into Fun Time With These DIY Bags!

Make these fun snack bags with your kids or add to lunch bags for a fun surprise!

You'll need:

  • clothespins
  • snack-size plastic zipper bags
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • glue
  • markers, paint, glitter glue, puffy paint (optional)
  • bite-sized snacks or candies

Here’s how to make them:

  1. For each bag, decorate one side of a clothespin as desired. Glue two small googly eyes near the "closed" end of the clothespin and let the glue dry.
  2. Put your snack into a snack-size plastic zipper bag until it’s a little over half full. Seal the bag, cinch the middle with your fingers and clip it with the clothespin.
  3. Fold down and curl the tips of a 6-inch length of pipe cleaner, then bend the entire piece in half. Clip the pipe cleaner in the clothespin.

Love these! Thanks Kimberly Johnson ! I used a variation on this for my summer dance camp last year and turned them into "fairies" for our Fairy Themed Camp. (Instead of a snack in the baggies, we filled with sparkles, tissue paper, etc. and added a magnet on the back for more of a keepsake item).
