If your toddler is anything like mine, you’ve had this same experience.
- Toddler begs for snack.
- Mom hands toddler Nutri-Grain bar, granola bar, Fig Newton, or similar squishy bar-type food that spikes toddler’s blood sugar but is easier to just give him than fight over.
- Toddler insists on “opening” bar.
- Bar is crushed to fruit and grain paste.
- Toddler loses marbles because said bar is broken.
Ok, I can’t help you with that whole scenario. You are on your own. BUT, I can help you with #4 and on! We all know kids FREAK when their snack is broken. It’s like the brain just cannot compute that a broken cookie is the exact. same. thing. as as an intact cookie. And when, while digging in the bottom of your diaper bag, do you actually find a whole, intact, granola bar or cookie? Yeah, never. Enter the Sunglass Snack Container Mom Hack! This ain’t no Pinterest activity involving 24 locally sourced, organic items you totally “had around the house.” I guarantee you have an old hardshell eyeglass container around the house, and while it may contain your emergency back-up glasses with a prescription strength circa 2002, it can definitely be used here! Don’t have one around the house? No problem, try here or here or here. Should we call this a craft? Sure, let’s call it a craft. Here is how to make a Sunglass Case Snack Container.
- Open sunglass/eyeglass hardshell case.
- Place snacks inside case.
- Close case.
The bars fit PERFECTLY inside a sunglass case, and remain paste-free for as long as they sit in the depths of your diaper bag. Pinterest THAT.
