With lunch making ambitions high as the school year begins, I envision a well balanced meal everyday! I intend to put a loving note in all 3 lunch boxes everyday and possibly even cut their sandwiches into the shape of heart.
The truth is after the first week of school, I hit a wall I just can't think of a single thing to put in those little lunch boxes. It will be back to boring sandwiches and a piece of fruit before long.
This summer, as ideas for a school lunch popped in my head and I would write it down in my notes on my phone.
So far I have things like:
Whole wheat chicken burritos
Asian noodles with veggies
Whole wheat spaghetti
Yogurt with fruit and granola
Homemade soup with grilled sandwich
Just a few....I even started a Christmas idea list, but that is beside the point. One day in my quest to make lunches healthy, edible and fairly easy, I came a cross a fun idea.
Lunch box jokes!
I am an advocate for notes in kids lunches, a little love in the middle of the day. Being a kid can be hard and sometimes a little reminder you are special is the perfect pick me up during a hard school day. SO, how about a little love and a laugh! I thought this would be great for kids who may be shy or going to a new school. This would be a great ice breaker in the often intimidating lunch room.
You can also pop a little note of encouragement in on test days!
Check out the jokes here.
I would love any jokes or lunch ideas you have to share!
