Get your whole family involved in tonight's dinner. Get all the ingredients to make a full meal in a packet and let each of your kids create their own!

Try something easy like this Barbecue Chicken Packet, which involves chicken, corn, peppers, and bbq sauce, or come up with a recipe of your own using what you have. Set out the ingredients and let each kid make their packet. Grill it up and enjoy!

Have you ever made meal packets? What will you put in yours?

I've never mixed meat with veggies in a packet before but that looked really good. I tend to put together packets that have the same cook time, root veggies, meat, soft veggies, fruits, etc. Time to try something new I suppose. :)
