Making Lunches Special
-Write your child a note - not a reminder to clean her room, but a love note or funny message.
-If you planned the menu with your child, throw in an extra treat that will be a pleasant suprise with a note saying, "Surprise! Mom sent me!"
-Choose some funny jokes or riddles, copy them on a card and include them in the lunch.
-Start a cookie cutter collection. Any sandwich when cut into a funny shape will amuse your child - and will induce him to eat his lunch!
-Get a stack of stickers. They will make brown paper bags all the more fun!
-Magic markers are terrific for writing your child's name or for drawing on the outside of the lunch bag (or even for making faces on hard-cooked egg shells or bananas!)
Here is a link for some fun labels and stickers you can print out. Have fun!
