Sandwich bags – easy opening for children
I have been sent this very useful tip for sealing childrens’ plastic lunch bags.
After plastic bagging the daily sandwiches, make it easy for the children to open them by tying the bag shut with a tie that is sheer simplicity to remove, even for the youngest child. Easy to reseal too, it they want to.
Take another of the bags and make it into a tie by pulling lightly on diagonal corners. Exclude the air from the bag with the food and then tie the neck closed with the strip made by the second bag. A single knot is suitable.
To open the food bag just pull on the knot with your fingers and it will easily slide off the neck of the food bag.
You can re-use the “tie” bag four to six times by ignoring the knots and tying again.
Our thanks to Mae Loat for this very original and useful idea.
