Butterfly Snack for Preschoolers
If you’ve ever seen the adorable clothespin butterfly snack bags on Pinterest, no doubt you’ve been tempted to make them for your little one. Not only are these bags a great way to let the kids join in on the fun, but they’re also incredibly easy to make.
All you need is some colorful pipe cleaners and snack bags or sandwich bags.
How to Make Make Butterfly Snack Bags
Place snacks in each snack bag, leaving a bit of room. Make sure not overfill the bags or it’ll be difficult to shape the insects. Release as much air from the bag as possible and seal the bag.
Divide the snacks in the middle (this is where the pipe cleaner will wrap around the bag.) Fold the seal of the bag over towards the back to hide the zipper bag tabs.
Wrap a pipe cleaner around the center of the bag. Twist the pipe cleaner at the top a few times. Then, use your finger or a pencil to create the antennae for the butterfly by twisting it around.
Repeat this process for the desired amount of snacks and butterflies you will need.

Display your butterflies on a wood tray with a few silk flowers or in a big wooden bowl until you’re ready to serve the spring treat bags. They make the cutest table decor for a spring party at school, as a special playdate treat, or even as a fun snack to make with the kids.
To give your butterfly snack bags an extra special touch, why not add some seasonal themed snacks inside? Try adding colorful candies like pastel jelly beans, or sprinkle in a few chocolate-covered raisins for added flavor. Whatever treats you choose, it’s sure to be a hit with kids of all ages!
