School will be starting again soon and Moms and Dads will be packing lunchboxes everyday. Instead of giving your kids a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a bag of chips, why not try at least one creative lunch per week. I know that making lunches for your kids day after day, week after week, for a year gets monotonous and is time consuming, believe me, I did it for years when our kids were growing up, but think of the look on your child’s face when they open up their lunchbox and see one of these fun lunches waiting for them. Pick one day a week and tell your child this is the special lunch day they can look forward to each week.
Here are 10 easy back to school lunchbox ideas that don’t take long to prepare but will keep your kids happy during lunch and make them the envy of their classmates.
Some of these lunchbox ideas use Bento Boxes, which make packing food easier than a traditional lunchbox or Tupperware container. Other ideas require a variety of cookie cutters to create the desired shape.
Of course, a lot of these ideas should be modified based on what your kids like to eat. Use this printable list of food ideas to keep on your frig in case you run out of ideas and are in a hurry.
