On pretty much every must-have Disney packing list, you'll find Ziploc bags. Seriously, baggies can be used for everything - from bringing snacks to outfits to medicine to toys. Baggies are a must.
But, how about a more eco-friendly option? And, not even just eco-friendly, but economical! While you'll pay a little more up front, I found a great option that will last longer and they're adorable!!
My high school friend, Amanda, has a great Etsy shop filled with homemade goodies - reuseable bags of all sizes (snack, sandwich, large), towels, bibs - and it's all customizable! While we were "chatting" on facebook a few month ago, we decided that she should find some Mickey fabric and make a few for me to share with my readers (and for me, of course!).
She sent me 2 - 1 for each of my boys :)
I've seen different versions of these, but none with the pattern that I would choose - until now! The best part is that the inside has great lining to keep crumbs or protect from drips.
From her etsy site:
Choose your print and closure style for a waterproof large snack bag. 6"Wx5.5"H
Please convo for larger quantities
These are great for lunches, snacks at home or on the go and food storage. Useful for mom, kids and even Dad's lunch!
-3 closure options - snap, zipper or velcro
The outer is 100% cotton print.
Lined with a laminated rip stop nylon:-food safe-waterproof-mold and mildew resistant-BPA free-Phthalate free
This fabric is used because it is more waterproof than regular rip-stop nylon, and it is tested food safe, unlike most PUL. The laminated side does not touch your food.
All Cute Little Bugs products now come with a label tag. Use the back of the tag to write your child's name!

**When ordering, please indicate your choice of print in the notes to seller.**
About the closures:
Snaps - Long lasting, durable and cute. Do not show wear and not effected by frequent laundering, also will no stick to other items in laundry. Most children 4 and older can manage them independently. All snap closure bags have a fold over top to prevent spills.
Zipper - Easy to manage for most children over 3. Launders well, long lasting and visually appealing. Will not stick to other items in laundry/ Creates a full closure of the bag.
Velcro - On snack bags, velcro is a small piece to secure the fold over top. Most children over 2-3 can manage it independently. On sandwich and quart bags, velcro is a full strip along the top and there is no fold over. This creates a full closure of the bag. Most children 4 and older can manage it independently. Pull tabs can be added to these velcro
closure sandwich bags upon request.
When ordering, please indicate your choice of closure - snap, zipper or velcro - in the comments to seller.
