I can’t believe that as of September 6th, I will have both a kindergartner and a middle schooler. Where has the time gone off to over the past few years? I still remember my children as newborns, and now, here they are reaching scholastic milestones and helping me pick out lunch box favorites at Walmart.
Can we freeze time for just a little bit? Things have been so chaotic lately between the move and school. I just want to enjoy the remainder of summer and relax with my “babies”. As much as I thought I would never say this, I am not ready to be alone during the days. For the past ten years, I have always had a small child with me.
What will I do with all my kid-free time? The house will not be the same once they head back to school. Only when they arrive home at 3 will the normalcy of a full house commence. 3 pm in our home is always a little chaotic because it is snack time.
My kids know that when they get through the door, each of their place mats will have a snack like Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers.
One thing I always enjoyed as a teacher was seeing what my students brought in their lunch boxes. Seeing the joy in their eyes when they unzipped their boxes to find cute notes, silly faces, or their favorite snack was heartwarming. Now, as a mom to three, I have always tried my hardest to add one fun element to my kid’s lunch boxes each day.
Today, I wanted to share some silly & cute lunch box ideas using Goldfish® crackers.
My son is all about sill things, and my girls love cute things. To find the perfect balance, I wanted to share some very quick and EASY lunch box fun that will be sure to help you pack a well-balanced lunch box full of smiles.
