How to Add Some Fun to Back-to-School Lunches With Little Surprises!

Back-to-school is such an anxiety-ridden time of year. While many kids secretly anticipate getting back on a structured schedule, there are still a lot of unknowns. Start the new year off with some comforts from home by making their lunches extra special. 

  • Sneak in a photograph captured when you all did something fun during summer. 
  • Leave a fun token like a small stuffed animal or a Matchbox car. 
  • There’s always the simplicity of a note stating how much you miss your child and hope they’re having a great day. 
  • Surprise older kids with sandwiches wrapped in designs like Hello Kitty or Spiderman.

Brighten their day!
