Plus, with pic-nik and play ground weather coming up I'd really like to make some more snack bags in different sizes...and perhaps some out of oil cloth so they could be wiped off easily...But in order to do any of these, I'd first have to clean off the table; again.
I wish I was Sharilyn's friend just so I could be on her short list of people to give these to. Not that I couldn't make a few for myself; but do I really want to add another thing to my to do list?
It would be pretty awesome to have a few of these on-the-go bags prepped and hanging in the closet by the front door.
I usually have an extra diaper and some wipes somewhere in the backseat of my car (under what has become the mobile coat closet). If we happen to be taking Mr Man's car then all bets are off. No snacks have been squirrled away in the glove compartment, there's no box of hand wipes under the seat, and neither a bucket nor a shovel are in the trunk for improptu beach excursions.
We're generally working with whatever I happened to stuff into my purse on the way out of the door.
We've been trying to use less plastic - in an attempt to balance out the amount of plastic that seems to arrive with the birth of a child...I've had glass storage bowls and reusable snack bags on the brain for a while now.
snack bags - check
These are pretty perfect because they take just a few minutes to put together - including the cutting, and there's no velcro involved. I wanted to find/make something without velcro because I was looking for something that Little Mr. could open with little to no assistance.
Amy over at angrychicken posted a fun (and funny) video tutorial on sewing your own snack bags. I'm going to be making smaller ones in a few days.
