Bailey takes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch everyday. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree except I only had a peanut butter sandwich no jelly. Anyway, to make it a little more fun I will get out my cookie cutters and make different shapes. This day was a hand but I've done - hearts, pumpkins, letters, flowers, etc. you get the idea. I try not to let her see so it will be a surprise at school and then when she gets home she tells me what it was. It's fun.

I have to tell you what my mom did for my school lunch. She would always take a bite out of my sandwich and not just mine but also my brother and sisters. Funny, right?! That was her trade mark. You knew who made it if there was a bite out of it. Makes me laugh just thinking about it.

So what things do you do in your kids lunch to keep it interesting and fun? I'm always looking for ideas!

Hi Elizabeth,
Periodically I check you all out to see how life is going and it looks like all is well.
My mom also cut my sandwiches out with different shaped cookie cutters. I knew what it was before school but still always excited to see it in my metal lunch box. Even at 47 it is a nice memory thanks for the reminder.
Funny - I only like peanut butter- still that way now!
