This is the first Spring where we will have both kids playing in Little League. The season hasn’t even started yet, and we are already adjusting our home schedules around two teams’ worth of practices. Sometimes that means dinner gets bumped back a little later than the kids are used to, so I have to throw together a snack to tide them over. Most days that means chucking some food into my purse and hoping it doesn’t get too smashed to eat. Some days, though, I have the time to make a quick baseball snack sack to brighten up their afternoon.
1. Gather your supplies: lunch sack, black and red markers, scissors, and a bowl that is roughly the width of the lunch sack.
2. Line the bowl up with the top of the sack and trace around the bowl.
3. Carefully cut around the top half of the circle.
4. Cut the back straight across the back.
5. Add baseball laces with the red marker.
6. Add your player’s name or number with a black marker.
Then you can fill the sacks up with a snack that they will love and will keep them moving. A piece of fruit, some string cheese, and a Rice Krispies Treat® and a bottle of water are plenty to fill them up until dinner at home.
Add a special touch to the bag of snacks by wrapping the Rice Krispies Treats® in printable baseball themed wrappers. I created three different versions, and you can download them for non-commercial use here.
