Kroger stores now carry the filled crackers so I was able to pick them up at my local Smith's while I was getting other groceries. I enjoy doing my grocery shopping at Smith's because even though there is another grocery store closer to our house the prices there are much better and when you have 8 people to feed prices matter. The other day I even got an envelope full of coupons in the mail, including 4 or 5 for free items. Anyway, I was at the store picking up some other stuff we needed and I thought throwing a little snack in there, especially something that is not sweet, would help keep kids happy and prevent them from getting "hangry" when we are out around meal times because hungry, grouchy kids are no fun. Although maybe I need to keep some extras around for the older kids because they are the worst when "hanger" strikes.
The first thing I did after gathering up all of my stuff was iron my decals on the bags. To make the decals I used my Cricut and in Design Space I just made the words, my daughter's names and activity bag, in different fun fonts. I sized them so that they were about 6 inches across. Then I added a little shape for each bag, a flower for one and a snowflake for the other (she is obsessed with Frozen).
Next I divided out all of the stuff into two piles, one for each of the girls. Some of the things I split between the two, it was a lot cheaper to buy 24 crayons instead of two boxes of 8 so I just the box into two sandwich bags. I also picked up one set of lacing cards and divided those.
Then just stuff it all in the bags and you are ready to go.
