Backpack Snack Printable Treat Topper

It’s almost that time again. New shoes, new backpacks, new pencils. Some days I think I’m ready and other days, I’m not. Today, though, is a ready day!

I thought it would be fun to make up some fun trail mix mimicking the new school supplies we’re all gathering now. I walked the aisles of my favorite grocery store and here’s what I came up with…

  • Oreo Snack Chips…blackboards
  • Marshmallows…chalk
  • Pretzel sticks…pencils
  • Red fruit snacks…apples
  • Pink Starburst…erasers

I unwrapped all of the individual pieces and mixed in a large bowl. I cut each large marshmallow into fourths long ways. After it was mixed, I used a large scoop to put the mix into snack sized zip bags. I did try to evenly distribute the marshmallows and pink candies.

The topper is one I made just for this occasion and is available as a free download. It fits a standard sandwich and/or snack sized zip bag.

How to Make:

Simply download, print, cut, fold in half, and staple over a zip bag. I did one with the poem and one blank. Can you read upside down? :) It reads… I’ve got my backpack, my pencils, I’m looking cool. It’s time to go…I’m ready for school!

*Stop by each week for our DIY MOMS feature. 24/7 MOMS will feature a DIY ( Do it yourself) project by a MOM each week.
