Look, I hate Pinterest as much as everyone else claims to, but that doesn't mean that I don't feel like occasionally shoving some super-cute snack in my kid's lunchbox. The problem is, I go to Pinterest, look around, see all of this stuff that I cannot pull off, and give up. Pinterest is supposed to be DIY heaven, but it can be hell for mediocre-craft-moms like myself.
Yes, when it comes to all things crafty I am a mediocre mom - I admit it. I know some of you must be like me, so I've taken the time to wade through Pinterest and find some stuff that looks doable - so you don't have to. You're welcome. Take a few seconds to prepare these snacks. You may even find yourself Instagramming them. (That's a verb now, right?)
1. Butterfly Snack Bags
Plastic bag. Treats. Googly-eyes. Clothes pin. PIpe cleaners. Done.
2. Banana Man
More googly-eyes. Maybe this isn't really Pinterest-worthy, but these googly eyes seem like a solution for a mom like me. You could slap these on anything.
3. Little Bear Muffins

How cute is this? Do you want to pack a plain old muffin like the boring mom that you are, or do you want to shove some pretzels and chocolate chips on it and reach your full Pinterest-mom potential with these little bear muffins?
4. Graham Cracker Lions

Turn peanut butter graham crackers into little lions. Seriously - chocolate chips and pretzels are amazing.
5. Rainbow Fruit Sticks
Well, this is self-explanatory.
6. Apple-Marshmallow Smiles

I don't know about your kid, but mine would laugh hysterically if he opened his lunchbox and saw one of these. Or cry. Not sure which one. This looks like it's just some apple slices, peanut butter and marshmallows. Easy.
7. Fish In The River!

This I could definitely pull off. I just have to figure out how to keep them upright in his lunchbox.
8. Cookie-Cutter Sandwiches
I'm sure most of you have already thought of this, but for those of you who haven't and are easily impressed - look at these things! Turn a sandwich into a cute little car or whatever. Be that mom.
