Each year there are cute photos that surface online of all the amazing lunches parents are sending out. There're all adorable, but it's easy to think you don't have time. Well consider this your crash course to awesomeness and reminder notice to start thinking of fun things now! Click through these images to see what's headed out the door at this household.
Over at This Lunch Rox, things are made fresh and packed up daily. Lunches are portioned out into small bits, just the way kids like to eat and more often than not there's a surprise, treat, or something funny just waiting when the lid comes off.
The author, Jamie, has tons of tips and pointers in her archives. For instance, all those silicone cupcake liners they sell at the store — forget them for baking and use them as a food divider instead. Blueberries can be eyes, toothpicks are a great way to keep your masterpiece from falling apart and tiny cookie cutters come in quite handy.
Head over to This Lunch Rox for tons of ideas, sometimes recipes, and loads of inspiration to make something fun this year for your kids. Even if it's not a daily thing, setting a goal for once a week might be a great place to start.
