How to Build a Snackle Box

What is a snackle box?

A snackle box is the ultimate snack box, created in an old tackle box, bento box, or even a craft organizer. We found lots of options online or at the dollar store. Fill them with your favourite snacks for a picnic or road trip. These are also great for keeping kids entertained on long car or plane rides.
