Soccer is a big thing at our house. Mr. Mom Endeavors played soccer from 2nd grade through college and now the boys are following in their daddy’s footsteps. Big Brother started soccer with a local league last year (1st grade) and this year Little Brother (preschool -4) decided he wanted to join in the fun too! That means juggling double practices on Wednesday nights and double games on Saturdays! It also means snack duty! So, I teamed up with #CollectiveBias to share a fun #SidelineHero soccer snack kit! For our games, the family on snack duty usually brings drinks for the team and some kind of snacks to help rehydrate & refuel. The kids expend so much energy running around on the field! And since we’re in the Arizona desert, the temperatures are starting to heat up. So, the boys definitely get thirsty (and hungry) after all that and POWERADE® is a welcome refreshment! We bring our little rolling cooler stocked with individual bottles! The 12 pack of 12 ounce POWERADE® is so convenient for your snack kits! Our soccer teams actually only have 12 kids – so it really is the perfect team size. And while supplies last, be sure to look for a coupon on the 12-pack 12 oz POWERADE® packages and you can get $1 off Walmart fresh produce when you buy two 12-pack 12 oz POWERADE®! Fresh produce is great for soccer snacks (and goes with the coupon)! So, for our #SidelineHero snack pack, we included POWERADE®, clementines & then a cheese & cracker snack pack. Other great snack options include apples, bananas, granola bars, individual bags of crackers/pretzels, string cheese/yogurt tubes (if kept cold), etc. For each snack kit, we added a clementine & cracker pack to a sandwich baggie. And, to make things a little more fun, we added some soccer printables.

For the cheese & cracker packs, we added a “good game” label. Just print, cut, & use tape or some adhesive to stick the label on to the cracker packs. You could also add the label to bars, bags, or punch a hole & use ribbon to tie on a banana, drink, etc. Then, we added a “soccer power” label to the top of the sandwich baggies (it plays nicely off the POWERADE® 😉 ). For that label, just print, cut and fold over the top of the baggie. Then staple (or tape) it on!
With just a few supplies, it’s super easy to create a great little soccer snack kit! This one was a big hit with Team Storm!!
