With a house full of growing boys I’ve learned that I must provide snacks between meals or else the entire contents of the pantry will be gone within a matter of days. I’m so not exaggerating. I have a growing repertoire of snacks to keep the boys happy. My favorites are the simple ones: oatmeal cookies, popcorn, PB&J, muffins and trail mix. They are oldies but goodies.
Early on I spoiled my boys by getting really creative with their snacks. They loved having pickle popsicles, frozen Jello dixie cups, mini burgers, hot dogs and pizzas but that meant they grew bored with the regular stuff. Then I saw some really cool ideas on Pinterest. Moms were using the cutest printable labels and toppers to embellish party foods and thought it would be great to use them with snack foods. It turns out my boys love it! It gives me an outlet to be creative and my boys think it is the best thing since PB&J. One of them even said to me, “mom. I like when you put the fru-fru stuff on my snacks because I know you think about me when you do.” That melted this mama’s heart, y’all.
I designed these with Fall in mind. Included is two sizes of bag toppers, a brown paper bag popcorn sticker and a round snack sticker. I’m also including a customizable label for a water bottle. Just because I have to have things match and all.
The water bottle labels can be customized. Simply click on the text box within the graphic and type out the word or phrase of your choice. Then choose the font style, color and size. The label should be cut to fit a standard size water bottle: 8.5×1.65. I use an adhesive on each end and down the center to adhere it to the water bottle.
I know most of you probably know how to make the brown paper bag popcorn already but if you don’t I”ll let you know how to do that too. It is easy, peasy. Just pour 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels into a brown paper bag. Spray a bit of cooking spray in bag, on kernels. Fold top of bag over twice. Shake well to distribute cooking spray. Place in microwave and heat on high for 2-3 minutes. Remove the popcorn when the pops slow to about 2 or 3 per second. Enjoy!
