Valentine’s Day is a little less than one month away. It does seem as if the holiday season just ended, but I guess it is ok that the winter months are flying by. I have a love/hate relationship with the colder months and am desperate awaiting the spring. Even my kids are going stir-crazy so I have been trying my best to keep them entertained.
One of the ways I like to keep my three kid’s spirits up is by making their lunchboxes fun. Little notes, sweet treats, and seasonal printed napkins have them always looking forward to noon during the school week. I love being that mom who adds some cheer to their child’s lunchbox so I wanted to share these cute Valentine’s Lunch Box Ideas with you all.
I really LOVE the cutesy part of Valentine’s Day! The pretty shades of pink, purple and red. The glittery heart shapes, the chocolate, and the cards all make it a blast! Plus, it is an extra special day to remind someone how much you love and care about them.
Featuring some of our family’s favorite brands like Peter Pan Creamy Peanut Butter, and Sparkling Ice Grape Raspberry, I wanted to show you all how cute you could make these tasty products! The best part it is it pretty inexpensive to add these small Valentine’s Day sentiments to your child’s lunchbox.
Let’s Explore what I did and used for these Valentine’s Lunch Box Ideas:
I simply used a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make heart-shaped white bread, and then I spread the Original Peter Pan on it.
To wrap the sandwich, I used some parchment paper, and folded it envelope style, and tied it off with some bakery twine. There is just something about heart-shaped sandwiches that my kids love since there are no crusts on them.
For the sides, I added some fun Valentine’s Day stickers to a small orange. This provided non-toxic and fun elements without the hassle of a food marker. Heart stickers also added some spunk to their Snack Pack Vanilla Pudding cups. The robot spoon really tied everything together.
I like to add a sweet treat to my kid’s lunchboxes so some candy hearts were tied off with a cute tiny pink clothespin.
Finally, a heart paper straw was gently taped to a bottle of *NEW* Sparkling Ice Grape Raspberry for a super cute way to enjoy this fizzy and sugar-free drink.
Lastly, a multi-colored heart napkin pulled the entire look together and added the very last adorable Valentine’s element.
Of course, this lunchbox could very easily be made into an after-school snack, or on-the go meal before game day or sports.
