Family road trips are the perfect way to create memories as you explore fun destinations together. With a little bit of planning, the miles on the road can actually be really fun. Some of my very favorite vacations have started with hours and hours in the car. Make the most of that time together by making it an adventure.
Put together these Baby Groot bags to save the day when you need a little bit of help from the heroes to get through a sticky situation. Do you need a snack? There's a bag for that! Bored? Open an activity bag! No matter what situation arises, you have a Baby Groot bag ready to save the day.
These bags are inspired by one of the most popular Guardians of the Galaxy characters, Groot! He is a tree of few words, but he is remarkably powerful and everybody likes him. Not to mention, we can't wait to watch him grow when Guardians of the Galaxy 2 comes out next month!
For the Baby Groot bags, you will need:
To start, you will need to download the Baby Groot Bags template here. This is the image that will be printed onto the bags.
Buy some large brown paper lunch sacs from the grocery store, or have them shipped to you via Amazon. Count out how many road trip bags you will need and then cut an inch off the top of each bag.
Then, take turns printing the Baby Groot Bags template onto the bags one at a time. The best way to print onto paper bags is to tape the bag onto a regular sheet of paper. This makes it so your bag doesn't jam in the printer. It also keeps it straight as the image is being printed onto the bag.
Use clear scotch tape. Center the bag onto the sheet of paper and then tape the very top edge of the bag to the top of the page. You want the bag as close to the top of the paper as possible. I folded the extra tape over onto the backside of the sheet of printer paper. Make sure it is nice and flat and smooth.
Place the paper into the printer so that the taped side of the bag is in the top position. In my printer, the papers feed through upside down, so I placed the paper with the bag face down and the backside of the plain paper on the top.
Print the image. Choose the box "scale to fit media" to be sure the image makes it onto the bag. Some of my bags came out just a little bit smudged with ink. I have a pretty old printer, so yours might not have that issue! I didn't really mind the messy ink spots though. They felt super hero authentic.
Once all of the bags are printed, cut the tops off using scissors to make it look more like Groot. He is a tree afterall! I like the jagged top.
Next, label the Baby Groot bags based on what you want to use them for. I like having a variety. I picked road trip activities that I thought my kids would enjoy. They like having snacks to eat, drinks, movies, games, little toys, and coloring and craft items. I have found that mints and chewing gum help my daughter to avoid getting too car sick.So, those are great items to have in the Baby Groot bags, too.
Have fun making the labels. Your bags can say things like, "Open when your ears are bored." Or, "Open when your mouth is dry." Or, "Open when you feel woozy."
