I decided to do a trail mix bar at the start of the day before we left. I had the kids write their names on the back of the tags and we handed them out when we got to the zoo. It was a easy way to deal with the after lunch/before dinner hunger. Plus, it turned out REALLY cute.

Here is the tags that I used for the bags. I just printed these as a wallet size and cut them out. I tied them onto brown paper sacks with some orange raffia. Just RIGHT CLICK and save the image to your desktop to print.

I also got some Expedition Supplies. The kids LOVED this and were so excited to pick out their supplies and hit the road.

I bought most of the stuff from oriental trading and found the old trunk in my parents basement.

I also gave the kids a safari notebook to write down interesting things they found at the zoo. I originally was going to make a scavenger hunt and put it in the notebooks but I ran out of time.
