My kids are like wild hungry animals when they get home from school. They can barely make the 10 minute drive home without clawing each others eyes out. I wanted to be supremely prepared for our first week of school.
I created this personalized after school snack station to save anyone tears, yelling, or actually dying of hunger. Each kiddo has a box chocked full of healthy and delicious snacks. My son is gluten free and my daughter eats glutes at times. I wanted them to know anything they grab out of these baskets is 100% safe and already has the green light from mom.
I don't like hearning,
"What do you want to eat?"
"I don't know!!!!!"
"How about pop corn, peanuts, applesauce, cheese and crackers, trail mix, apples and peanut butter...."
These nifty little baskets are filled with a big variety of healthy snacks that I know my kids enjoy. They can walk right in the house and grab what they want. No whining, no yelling, and no one dead from a hunger induced rampage.
I found these chip board letters and little wooden utensils at my craft store. A little paint and some twine was all it took to transform these plain storage baskets. I keep them on top of the fridge so we see them all the time. I wanted them to look good, but still be functional and I think this fits the bill.
