Besides using them for lunches, these are the perfect size container to hold your dry-erase markers and eraser! The snap-tops keep everything contained, and they look great stacked on a shelf.

    The snap top containers only came in a 2 pack in my area (central NC)

      It’s a bonus offer. It’s not offered at all stores but keep watching, they pop up often during this time of year! HTH 👋🏽

        stopped by earlier today, and my store had both 2 pack and 3 pack. make sure to look around to see if there is another box of them that may have the bonus 3 packs. Just a note, the activity tray was smaller than I thought they would be. I believe the online version that looks to be out of stock may be larger. Overall, nice finds 🙂
