Hello Again and School Lunches

It feels like it has been forever since I last updated this blog. I apologize for that. We had a really busy summer. We tried to get in as much sight seeing as we could and I ended up getting burned out. However, now that the kids are back in school I am starting to get my motivation back and I am looking forward to blogging again.

I wanted to share this simple but fun idea for school lunches. I saw a comment on one of my cousin's facebook pages. Her friend suggested putting character napkins in her son's lunches. I thought that was a fun idea and decided to buy some for my kids. Every time I go to the store I try to pick up a new set of napkins. I also put a sticker and love note in my daughter's lunches. Sometimes I will write a message on a treat wrapper in place of a love note. My daughter looks forward to seeing which napkin and sticker I put in her lunch. My son is too old and cool for the stickers and love notes but he loves the character napkins.

Please let me know if there is anything fun you do for your kids lunches.

Great ideas! I write notes on my girls napkins and they look forward to them. I am going to try the stickers....never thought of that. Thanks for sharing!

Great idea! I put stickers on my son's sandwiches. I've noticed that he tends to eat all of his sandwich when he likes the stickers and less when he doesn't.

I have a big book of stickers so we only have repeats every 2 weeks. He loves it! And I love that he eats his sandwich!

I do the fun napkins and note thing, but this year I started putting in a simple kid joke...even one of the teachers commented about it to me. It's a real hit with the 1st/2nd grade set!

Wauw i like the napkins.
We write a note on edible paper ( i don't know how you call it) and sometimes i cut them in shapes ( a butterfly, a dinosaur etc.).
Sometimes i cut the sandwiches with a cookiecutter in shapes. The animals and planes and cars are favorite.
