It started out just like it sounds, as a fun lunch. As in singular. As in, I just happened to be looking in a drawer and spotted the dinosaur sandwich cutter impulse buy from months before, and I thought “I’m going to surprise her today!” She was surprised alright. I think the moment I knew I was in trouble was when her eyes lit up and after pronouncing me “The best mommy in the world!” she excitedly inquired, “I wonder what fun lunch I’m getting tomorrow?!” Uh, come again?
Thus, my journey into fun lunches began, and soon I was enjoying it just as much as her. Some were inspired by other bloggers:
Bagel, cream cheese, blueberries, carrot, strawberry, veggie sticks, and a cucumber peel.
Croissant, chicken salad, oat cereal, strawberries, pineapple and string cheese.
Others were inspired by things that we were reading or studying in school:
Others I created just because they were cute ::
When I first started making these lunches I would get stressed out if they didn’t turn out the way I planned, which just sounds silly now. They’re called fun lunches for a reason, because they’re supposed to be fun. Now I just use whatever I have on hand. Some are winners, some are not, but she’s six. Kids really aren’t that hard to please at this age. I guarantee whatever you make will be “the best thing EVER” in their eyes!
