On The Go Snacks For Summer In Sandwich Containers: Road Trips, Park, Beach

It's almost summer break for us, yay! As always, I think I'm more excited than Nikolai.
We enjoy traveling a lot during summer break especially road trips, and when we are not on the go, we are usually at local parks, museums or enjoying our beautiful beaches.

Often I pack a snack for Nikolai, and at times also for my hubby and myself. You may already know that I love to collect bento boxes/ food containers and therefore we have many sizes and brands available.

For on the go snacks, I love to use our smaller containers especially those square sandwich containers which are often the perfect size. I've collected cute ones since Nikolai started Kindergarten and I'm still hoarding them, lol. These containers are also great for play-dates or a light lunch. I fondly remember packing Nikolai's snacks in his Elmo box when he was a toddler for his play-dates since he was quite picky with his food.

Now that school is out for the summer, it is time to turn those plastic sandwich containers into the perfect on the go containers for snacks. They are great for outings to the park, the beach, car rides and more!

Snack 3: Sandwich cut in half. Small circle pieces cut with small circle cutter and held in place with honey to resemble a Lego block.
Cucumber slices and strawberry cut into heart shapes. This snack is packed in our Lego themed box which I purchased from one of my favorite bento supplies stores, BentoUSA.

Snack 4: Fish nuggets, Colby Jack fish shaped cheese, seedless grapes, cheddar goldfish crackers, homemade blueberry muffin with a cute pick, veggie straws and Panda cookies. These boxes were purchased years ago from the Dollar section at Target. Also, this is actually a light lunch and snack packed for Nikolai when he was in Kindergarten or Grade 1.

Perhaps these four examples might suggest some of the possibilities that you also might enjoy during summer break. We find often that these simple snacks add a little something special to a day away from home.
