Heading out on the road with children isn’t for the faint of heart, but with a little preparation you can enjoy your road trip and begin making memories with your family. You’ve likely got lots of games, toys, movies, and even healthy snacks packed for your road trip. But did you know you can add a little excitement to those boring healthy snacks by creating your very own outdoor themed tackle box treat box?
This surprisingly easy craft is a great way to show your kids you’re thinking of them and add an element of surprise to your trip. When they see these tackle boxes brought out for them, they’ll squeal with excitement.
The first step to creating your tackle box treat boxes is to head to your local outdoors store and pick out medium sized tackle boxes that feature varying sized storage compartments. If these compartments can be removed that’s even better, as it makes cleanup a breeze. Most of these boxes comes in a variety of colors, so choose a color your child will love.
After you purchase you tackle boxes head to your local crafts store and pick up vinyl lettering and decals. You’ll use the lettering to place your child’s name on his or her box and the decals to add a little flair that compliments their personality. Select decals that honor their hobbies like soccer balls, books, or dolls.
Once you’ve put the boxes together pack them full of your children’s favorite snacks. Some helpful ideas include:
Almonds and chocolate chips
This craft is a simple way to show your children you love them. When you’re on the road and they begin asking for a snack, pull their tackle boxes out and watch their faces light up knowing you put so much thought into their treats.
