I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the kids to head back to school. I think they are ready too, but it’s also got me thinking about fun lunch ideas for kids for the first day of school. Every year I send the kids to school with something fun and unique, becasue it helps brighten their day, and for the younger kids it really puts them on the “cool” chart, lol. It’s funny, but every year Vayda looks forward to the first day of school becasue I surprise her with a cool lunch. I don’t let her look at it, she has to wait until she opens her lunchbox at school.
