In my crazy life, there is always a way to get organized and ready for back-to-school, and I’m so happy I can rely on amazing products with great quality like Ziploc® brand products. I can’t imagine my life when school starts without my go-to essentials.
I want to share my top 5 prep ahead snacks along with tips to make back-to-school fun and super easy for you. Why not make the last days of summer productive because we need to work just a little bit during summer time to make our life so much easier for school?
First, we need to talk about all the supplies that we will need to make some personalized Ziploc® brand Bags. You know the kids love when we take our time to make something super special for them, and these bags are super easy to personalize so that every time they open their lunch box, a smile will appear on their faces.
For me, this is also an easy way to have everything on hand and to keep my kids from fighting about their favorite lunch or how different they want their snack because my girls like different things all the time.
Ok, here we go, we need:
Ziploc® brand Snack Bags
Ziploc® brand Sandwich Bags or
Ziploc® brand Containers
Have you seen the super amazing feature of the Ziploc® brand Bags with Easy Open Tabs®? They are totally different and great for the kiddos to open their bags by themselves with ease.
I like to personalize the bags with their names and adding some decorations or stickers. They love it and it is a great way to keep all snack and lunches out of the reach of other kids. You can make some of these personalized Ziploc® brand Storage Bags with Easy Open Tabs® ahead of time and have them on hand. I like to keep one box on my fridge and another on my pantry.
Now that we have our bags ready I would love to share my prep ahead snacks. I have so many recommendations but my favorites are the ones you can have ready and the week before.
1- Raisins and cheese: you can have portions of ¼ cup of raisins and one string cheese in your fridge.
2- Grapes: go to the market, wash and dry your grapes and portion about 20 grapes per bag.
3- Oranges: every week peel and portion half of an orange in a bag. Cool, fresh and delicious.
4- Crackers: about 8 crackers are perfect or about ¼ cup of cheese crackers to complement the snack.
5- Carrots and celery: perfect for hot days, and you can use a small Ziploc® brand Container to add caramel, ranch dressing or peanut butter.
To make it easy and more organized, keep your snacks in a big Ziploc® brand Container on the fridge as well in your pantry. An organized life is a better life.
Make your prep on Sundays because in general, Sundays are a slow day and you only will need to make a week’s worth of snacks and lunches.
Let me hear about your favorite Ziploc® brand products and your favorite go-to snacks. And remember, back to school is around the corner so make your life simple and prep ahead as much as you can.
