Craft: Road Trip Duck Pond Printable

Duck Pond Printable and Road Trip Car Tray

My family is always on the go, whether it’s to karate practice or dance class, which means a lot of snacking in the car. I make it a point to try to fuel my family with healthier options and Nothing But The Fruit (NBTF) just made it a whole lot easier with their new Real Fruit Bites. They are mom approved and I love that my kids consider them “treats”, when they are 100% real fruit. We have a couple road trips coming up, which means more time spent in the car and I know what I’ll be loading up our snack bin with. To keep my preschooler happy during the drive, I created a duck pond printable. The ducks magnetically stick to the tray and can be moved around in the pond. I’ll also show you how to craft up an easy car tray, which conveniently doubles as a snack tray during road trips.

Step 1: Before road tripping, head to Starbucks to grab a few packages of NBTF’s new Real Fruit Bites. They are made with 100% real fruit that’s picked, pureed, and pressed. They are non-GMO, vegan & gluten free with no added sugars, artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, fillers or waxes. Yes, please! I always have a package in my bag for quick and easy on the go snacking.

Step 2: Spray paint a metal baking sheet with your choice of color. Do several light coats and allow to dry between coats. Allow tray to fully dry and air out before the trip.
