I admit it: packing the kids' lunches is not my favorite thing to do — especially after a summer of preparing light meals or warming up leftovers and sitting down to eat all together. But as with many of the more mundane things in life, good design makes a sometimes tedious task more pleasant. These adorable lunch bags make the thought of lunch-packing (almost) fun.
