A simple pack of white stickers from your local office supply store can do wonders for bringing on a little lunch time laughter. Draw different eyes every day, on different foods or once in awhile when the homework load gets a little heavy or you think they could use a surprise pick me up.
If you're not into individually wrapping each item with plastic, you could make small cut out eyes from other assorted foods. Try cheese, meats and vegetables to start with. For extra small cutters, improvise and use the end of a straw. Cut it off and use one small piece and then a wooden skewer to poke your newly punctured food back out. Instant "cookie" cutter.
Do you have your own way of adding a little bit of spunk to your kid's lunches? Let us know below!
