Having trouble getting the kids to eat healthy snacks at school and after they come home?

Here’s an cute idea to try!

Materials:

  • 1/2 pipe cleaner — $0.04
  • 1 clothespin — $0.04
  • 1 snack baggie — $0.04
  • 2 wiggle eyes — $0.08
  • Dab of glitter glue — $0.05

Instructions:

STEP ONE: Dab some glitter glue on one side of a clothespin. Stick wiggle eyes onto gluey side of clothespin. Let dry.

STEP TWO: Fill a snack-sized Ziplock baggie with your kid’s favorite treat (or a treat you are trying to get them to eat!). Distribute snack to corners of the baggie.

STEP THREE: Clip the clothespin over the snack. Stick antennae-shaped pipe cleaner into jaws of clip. Easy.

TOTAL COST: Spend around $0.25 on crafty materials and turn a boring snack into a fun (and frugal) experience. Plus, you’re treating the kids to a reusable craft project they can take to class. Add in the cost of food, and you’re still spending about 50% less than pre-packaged snack pack portions.

Thanks, Squawkfox.com!

 

Your Turn: What else could you use these cute critter clips for? Bookmarks? Refrigerator magnets? Share with me below!
