Waist packs for hiking

 We love outdoor activities and hiking is one of things we like to do. When we are active we need water and a snack and we need a way to haul them with us. In the past I have used a back pack but I have ended up with to many backaches from doing that so I decided to try waist packs. I bought one that has worked very well!

  Waist packs might not be the trendiest thing to wear but I would rather enjoy activities and not worry about how I/we look. Since Ken and I had waist packs I decided that the kids needed some too. So this weeks project was making some for them. I was able to use things we had one hand and we made some satisfactory waist packs that can each hold two water bottles, an emergency kit and a snack. We are looking forward to trying them out.

That is a great idea! I always love how you use things you have on hand to create new items. Thanks for linking up!

what a neat idea. I made water bottle carriers for my children because I got tired of lugging all the water too. One thing I did was put elastic at the top to kind of hug the bottle so it doesn't fall out.
