I decided to make my kids sack lunch extra fun this month. I took about 20 minutes, and wrote their names on all the bags they would need for the next few weeks.
Here are a few of Conrad's:
Here are a few of Sophie's:
The are just stacked in my pantry waiting for each day.
Each one has a joke inside. You can find links to my favorite joke sited on my pinterest board. The kids love the jokes so much that they read them to their friends every day, and bring them home and show me (like I didn't read it already ;)
Each one is also stuffed in advance with a Halloween napkin.
I have a super fantastic group of girlfriends, and we get together on Monday mornings in October, to make treats for the kids. It spreads out the cost, and makes it go really fast, and not seem overwhelming! My friend Candy has taken charge this year, and she ROCKS! You can visit her blog HERE.
These are a few. I send one each day, and the kids think they are SO LUCKY!
Store bought goes the fastest. And... no, I usually don't feed my kids processed junk food, but I make an exception in October.
This was so easy, and I duplicated it already! The kids think they are getting something extra special, but it is really just a sandwich!
My son, who normally begs for school lunch... hasn't even asked once! He is loving the home lunch.
I hope you'll try a few of these. It will make your October fun and memorable!
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
