I love being able to take snacks (particularly cereal) with me in the diaper bag. This way, if we are out and about and the kids get hungry I can just pull out some snacks — and avoid any meltdowns.
The problem is that I hate being wasteful when it comes to using plastic bags. Not only do I hate putting that plastic into a landfill, but I don’t like the thought of literally spending on something I’m going to throw away. That’s when I decided to make some cute, reusable fabric snack bags.
Creating a Reusable Fabric Snack Bag
You will need:
- Fabric (cotton and nylon)
- Scissors (or rotary cutter)
- Matching thread
- Fabric Fusion
- Honey Bunches of Oats cereal
You will want to pick two coordinating colors of fabric I used cotton for one side and nylon for the other. Cut the two pieces of fabric in about a 12″x7″ piece.
You will then want to put the two pieces of fabric so that the vibrant sides of the fabric are facing each other. Stitch along the edges, but leave a couple of inches along one of the seams.
You will want to push the fabric through the small opening so that it is turned inside out. Then sew the small opening closed.
Fold the fabric in half, but leave a small flap.
Sew a straight stitch straight up each of the sides. You now have a small pouch.
Cut a piece of Velcro the length of the flap. Using the fabric fusion, adhere the Velcro to the flap piece of the pouch. Wait 2 to 4 hours for the fusion to set.
After the fusion has set, stick the opposite piece of Velcro to the one that has adhered. Put the fusion on the back and stick it to the other side of the pouch. Clamp the pieces until both sides are set.
The last thing you have left to do is fill the snack bag with some delicious Honey Bunches of Oats cereal (your children will love it!). Now you have a cute reusable snack bag that you can stick in the diaper bag and pull out whenever you want a snack for the kids. Plus, when it gets dirty you can just toss it in the wash!
Speaking of snacks, one thing that the kids can always agree on when it comes to eating is that they love cereal. Whether it is for breakfast, snacks, or even as a meal, it is one of my go-tos. One of the kinds that we really love are Honey Bunches of Oats. In fact, there are three varieties of Honey Bunches of Oats that are sure to make anyone in the family happy: Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted, and Honey Bunches of Oats Gluten Free Chocolate.
With any of these you can be sure that you are not only providing your kids with a tasty snack, but it is also something that is good for them! The new Honey Bunches of Oats Gluten Free Chocolate (as well as Post’s new Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch cereal) are both new to the market and delicious choices.
You can pick up all three delicious varieties if Honey Bunches of Oats in the breakfast isle of your local Walmart where you can also stock up on other breakfast essentials such as milk, juice, and fruit. You can also unlock the rebate and save $0.50 off of any Post product at Walmart using Ibotta.
