Being an overly organized mom has created a bit of an issue for me. My kids seek and expect snacks at all times. I find myself packing a “rolling buffet” for every trip out the door. Sometimes I feel like an eco-terrorist for the gross amounts of disposable, plastic, ziptop bags I go through per month. So I was eager to give the adorable Snack-A-Long reusable bags I found at MojaCreations on Etsy.com a try.
MojaCreations creates custom, handmade fabric Snack-A-Long bags in a variety of sizes with a strong Velcro strip along the top and an elastic loop. I ordered a 6.5” x 6” bag in the ‘construction vehicle’ print fabric to please the “Bob the Builder” fan in my household. I was happy with the high quality of the construction. The bag is lined with easy to wipe coordinating orange fabric, and has a loop that makes it simple to attach to the belt on the carriage or the car seat making it impossible for my son to toss it out in transit. The manufacturer guarantees there is no lead, BPA or Phthalates in their products.
The Velcro strip remains strong after a couple of weeks of heavy use. My two year old needs to work at it awhile with two hands to get the bag open each time. But it is certainly worth the effort to protect his stash of Cheerios, pretzels, nuts and animal crackers. To clean I’ve been simply turn wiping it down and letting it dry. The manufacturer says when extra dirty it can also be thrown into the washer and dryer.
GIVEAWAY: Meg at MojaCreations has kindly offered to offer a $15 credit to her store which allows one That’s It Mommy reader to pick out any two (2) snack bags, sandwich bags, or sandwich wraps in a combo and fabric of their choice.
