I posted a picture of our snack box on Instagram a few days ago and got a few questions. Here are the yummy details.
We've had a snack box (just like this one) since Pookie was little and it's carried over with Little Einstein and we still use a snack box. We are constantly heading to baseball practice, the horse trainer, baseball tournaments or horse shows, the pool, the lake, etc.... I grab the box and bring it along. This summer I did change our old box to this pink one (the old one was exactly like this one but was blue) and added the monogram. We can all agree, that even a plastic box looks cuter with a monogram and a bow. The box is about 10 inches tall, 12 inches wide and 8 inches deep. It's not huge. You can probably see that a can of Pringles fits perfectly.
A closer look and yes that is Pirates Booty. I do not put chocolate of any kind in the box. It spends a lot of time in my suburban and we live in Texas...IT'S HOT chocolate would melt. The snacks we tote around change, currently they are loving: Pringles, pirate's booty, cheese crackers, goldfish, Oreos, popcorn, nuts, fruit snacks, protein bars, pretzels and I usually keep a container or two of microwavable mac and cheese.
Not only did I add a vinyl monogram to the front of the box but I added a cute ribbon and elephant hand sanitizer (Bath and Body Works). Makes sense, right...snacks...hand sanitizer.
I do keep a few none edible items in the box like a sharpie. I also have a pairing knife and a pair of pink scissors. All of which has come in handy more than a few times.
A few other none edible items in the box: plastic forks and spoons (sometimes I will run into the grocery store and grab them yogurt on the way to practice or whatever and the spoon comes in handy), trash bag, Ziploc bag, napkins, and towels. I know those five wrappers look like giant tampons but they are NOT.
It's a towel! They are individually wrapped and damp when you open them. They make clean up a breeze! Great part is they are cotton and I wash them later and Pookie takes them to the horse barn for misc.. uses.
The box is from Target (I've seen them at WalMart). I got the vinyl monogram on Etsy and the Elephant hand sanitizer is from Bath & Body Works. I want to add vinyl polka dots for a little more fun. Be creative and decorate your families snack box with creativity and fill with the yummy goodies of your liking.
Have a great summer (what's left anyway).
Love and Limes,
