Making lunches can be crafty!
Making my kindergartner's lunch has been another exercise in keeping things stable. I've wanted to make sure that she has still gotten a healthy, balanced mid-day meal. This has been no small feat as we wound down our grocery stash in the old house, and rebuilt in this one.
My little crafty secret is that i kinda get a kick out making her lunch. I like making it colourful. I like making it diverse. I get a sense of accomplishment when her lunchbox comes out of her backpack empty at the end of the day.
I challenge myself to provide her with as much variety as I can manage. I use fun tools (like a bunny egg press and silicone muffin cups) to brighten it up and make her smile.
Is it weird that a lunch box is my most artistic form of self-expression these days?
