and the Need for a Snack Station…
As a homeschool mom of 3, I am all too familiar with the snacking habits of a homeschool kid! My kids would literally munch all day long if I would let them – thus the genius behind creating a homeschool snack station.
While our snack station has changed both location and method multiple times over the years, our new set up is my absolute favorite so far! Not only is it portable and easy to manage, it’s super cute!
How to Create Your Own
Homeschool Snack Station…
Ready to get started on creating your own homeschool snack station? You can find all the supplies we used to create ours below!
This was such a fun buy! I absolutely love the rustic/farmhouse look and this fit in with my kitchen perfectly. The best part? I can easily move this tray from place to place. Sometimes it sits on our counter, other times it stays on the kitchen table.
If you have been following me for a while, you probably already know I’m a little obsessed with mason jars. I use them for nearly everything in our home – mason jars are my go to snack storage option! Now for this particular project, I opted for a fancier look and am so pleased with how it turned out!
When I was creating this snack station, I knew I wanted smaller portion controlled bowls for my kids to use. However, everything we currently owned was glass. Kids preparing their own snacks and traveling outside or to their desks with them in glass bowls? Not really something I was fond of. That’s why I was so happy to come across these guys! We try to eliminate plastic in our home as much as possible (especially when it comes to the kitchen).
This one is totally optional, you guys! I just happened to have some of this on hand and decided to add it to the bottom of our mason jars to keep the kids from scratching up my new bread tray. Worked like a charm too!
Snack Storage Ideas…
If you loved our homeschool snack station, check out some of the other ways we store kid snacks in our home. These snack storage ideas save my sanity (and my kitchen).
- Silicone Zip Tops – I absolutely love these for storing portion sized snacks in the fridge! They are perfect for fresh fruits and veggies – which makes for a super healthy grab-and-go snack!
- Stainless Steel Nesting Containers – Another huge favorite of mine! These are perfect for nearly everything. From storing leftovers to packing kid snacks and lunches! Absolutely love these little space saving containers!
