Can't believe it's been a month since I last posted - been a busy summer! We did take a short vacation to Holiday World in Indiana - We didn't purchase a single souvenir to bring back and the kids never asked for anything, either! And wow, what a deal that place is - very family friendly, with free drinks and sunscreen. Loved it.
So we got a birthday invitation last week for a one-year birthday party for a little boy. Now, a first birthday is a special birthday. We needed to have a gift for this little fella, so what were we gonna do? A friend told me that he liked Puffs (a toddler's snack). That got me thinking - how about a snack pack? Fill up a container with little snacks that a growing guy might like. I have included a pic so you can see what I came up with. I had the goodies but no container to put them in, so I had to get real creative real quick. I looked around my house and saw a pair of cut-off shorts that belonged to my oldest boy - he hated them so never wore them. I did a quick stitch to the bottom with hemp and had an instant "SnackPack". The pockets served to hold two yogurt drinks and the rest of it held the other little snacks. I made a decorative box to put some of the banana cookies in and a card to match. I tied two more strings of hemp through the belt loops for handles. The whole family seemed to like it, and I think it turned out pretty cute.
