~almost that time~

The kids start school in 2 more days......
They are not big fans of cafeteria food,
so each day I have to come up with some
fun new and healthy idea for their lunches! I came across some good ideas here.

Another thing I like to do is include a joke in their lunches.

You can easily print them out here.
I will print out a couple sheets of them ahead of time
and each day include one in their lunch box.
On special days like birthday's, I like to do something
extra special and include a handwritten note.
These are such simple things but they make a huge difference to the kids!
I also like to have fresh cookies or muffins right
out of the oven when they come home from school!

My mom used to write little notes or make funny little face drawings on our bananas! It made eating lunch so much fun!

Even though packing lunches for three got *old*, I prided myself on packing a lunch my three would love with a note inside or a special treat. A pet peeve: a dirty , smelly lunchbox. Wash those things makes the lunch seem so much fresher!!!

While there are times when it seems like a burden, I will never regret packing my kids lunches everyday. I missed making lunch for my oldest last year...for she had started her freshmen year at COLLEGE! I still make for her sister (almost 16) and will until she leaves for college. My girls always liked the funky little cocktail napkins I would find (sometimes centered around the holiday of the month).

Cute. I can't wait to get to do all these little things when we have kids. My mom always put so much love and thought into my little lunch box, and I'm so glad to see that these days there are still Mom's out there packing a healthy lunch instead of junk!
