INSIDE: How to make fun baseball DIY goodie bags for kids. Easy brown paper bags for baseball game day team snacks.
Well… I’m back for another year of being a baseball mom. And am I any closer to understanding the game? Not exactly! In fact, my 9-year old daughter has post-game ball talk with our boys, tossing out words like “grounding” and “fielding”, while I sit there (kinda sorta) clueless of the game. But, hey, I can wave and give my kiddo the thumbs up sign like no one’s biz!
And when it comes to game day snacks, this I’ve got totally figured out! Last season, I packaged the post-game treats in a cellophane bag with printable baseball snack bag tags. Super cute and an easy way for kids to grab a snack and go.
This season I’m doctoring up a brown paper lunch sack in all things baseball for the kids to take with them as they exit the dugout…

Baseball DIY Goodie Bags for Kids
Admit it, the snacks are often the best part of anything. For me they are, at least.

Cut several inches off the top of the brown paper bag to make it smaller. I used decorative scissors but regular ole scissors do the trick. I then gave the bag a crumple to get that sit-in-the-stands-eat-peanuts look.
Trace and cut a circle shape from a sponge. Paint a layer of white paint onto the sponge.
Lay the paper bag flat on a surface and proceed to stamp the circle shape onto the bag. If you want an opaque circle, apply lots of paint to the sponge. I wanted a vintage look so I applied the paint sparingly.
Once the circle is dry, paint (or use thin point markers) small red ‘V’ in the iconic baseball threading shape.
Paint (or write) “Play Ball” or “Go Team” onto the bags and fill with snacks!

How do you handle team snacks? I know that I could make my life simpler by buying all the kids tickets to the snack bar! But how fun would that be?
I filled these brown paper baseball snack bags with a juice box, fruit gummies and cracker sandwiches.
Here’s how to celebrate – from my high-fiveing view in the bleachers – what looked like a successful kids baseball game.
