Making a first day of school lunch your kids will remember all year long doesn’t have to be hard – these 3 simple first day of school lunch ideas!
Like I mentioned in last week’s post about pancakes for the first day of school (they’re super fun and simple – definitely check them out!) Ryan is starting pre-K in less than a month and I’m kind of super excited. YES, it’s going to be so weird to just be me and Owen for a couple of hours, but I’m so excited for Ry to make friends, learn, and grow into his own little person without me (insert really strained happy smile). But I’m also super excited to do weird things like make him lunch or volunteer for class mom.
I’m kind of a weirdo in that I’ve been excited for that kind of stuff since I was a kid. In high school, I helped out the boys’ lacrosse team and I literally made them snacks and food for after games. I would bake for my friends and bring in food and treats for class projects any chance I got. I’ve always loved taking care of people, but I’ve also loved an excuse to make people happy with food – even better if it’s not at my house so I don’t have to do the clean up for it.
