Lunch is a great time for kids to unwind from half a day of school, while also giving them energy and motivation to conquer the rest of the day. So why not make lunch time a fun and happy experience for the kiddos?!
We're rounding up some great products and ideas to make lunch fun and playful for your kids!
Ditch the paper and plastic bags and use a Bento Box. This allows for multiple different types of foods and less of a mess. So instead of wrapping and unwrapping chips and plastic baggies, kids can have everything ready to eat all in one place, so cleanup is a breeze.
Reusable Napkins are a great way to teach kids the importance of being conscious of the environment at a young age.
Mini Cookie Cutters are a super fun way to get kids excited for lunch. You can pick their favorite shapes, animals, etc and can even get creative based on holidays. Bonus, you get to eat the non-shaped leftovers. Cookie cutters can be used for cheese and fruit. If you're packing a sandwich, use bigger cutters to cut the their sandwich bread.
Mini Toothpicks - Similar to the cookie cutters, using toothpicks allow you to hold together food but add a little joy to kids lunches. They come in a million different options from animals to cars and trucks to holiday-themed.
On bigger foods, use edible ink markers to write something for your child! For example, on a Banana you could write "I Love You."
Notes - Using sticky paper, write your kid a little note of your choice. It could be a song lyric, a fun fact, a quick pep talk, or an affirmation. Whatever you choose, it'll make your child feel happy and special! You can choose fun sticky shapes or simple sticky notes.
