Ginger Snap Crafts: Bug Backpack {tutorial}

Bug Backpack {tutorial}

Hello there! Our family is super active. We love hiking outdoors, swimming & being together as a family. Every time we hop in the car for our next adventure, I usually like to pack a snack for my kiddos. They are always hungry. ha! That’s why Snyder’s-Lance single-serve size snack packs are the perfect addition to all of our family activities. They are convenient for tossing in the car or storing in the pantry for anytime snacking. They are easy to just grab & go. Annnnd most importantly, they are also made with great tasting & better-for-you ingredients that your family will love. Today I’d love to tell you more about these variety packs, & I’m going to show you how my kiddos made these cute Bug Backpacks (& matching water bottles!). These bags are perfect for holding a water bottle, snack & all their treasures they find along the way. I’m also sharing a nature scavenger hunt printable as well! Let’s get started!
