These lunch box jokes have become the talk of the lunchroom. I started writing notes in the girls’ lunchboxes when they were in preschool (even wrote about it a couple years ago here). When Taylor learned to read, I started writing little jokes. Now, 3 years later, I still write a joke… every day. Apparently their boxes get passed around the table because everyone wants to read the joke of the day.
My girls are going to be in for a surprise when they open their lunchboxes at school today. Candy for lunch! Yeah, right! I’ve emptied candy packaging and filled it with their regular lunch items. I carefully opened each box, emptied out the candy, added the real food, then used double sided tape to secure the packaging back together from the inside. I hope you

Payton and I pulled out all of the craft supplies this weekend to work on her family project – decorate your turkey.

Here’s Taylor’s Cat in the Hat disguise from this year….. This was Taylor’s from Kindergarten a
I started writing lunchbox notes to Taylor in preschool. She loved it so much that I haven’t stopped… and this year I started the tradition with Payton. I covered the top of their sandwich containers with chalkboard vinyl (found at Hobby Lobby). I use chalk markers to write. They wipe off easily with a wet sponge. For Taylor (2nd grade), I write riddles and jokes.
Today I helped out in my mom’s classroom to create a “First Day of Kindergarten” photo booth. During Meet the Teacher Night, the parents will have a fun spot to capture a photo of their kindergartner in their new classroom. We used green butcher paper for the backdrop (2 sheets wide), yellow paper for the pencil (creased to give it a 3D look), and die
Where has the summer gone? It’s August and we are gearing up to go back to school in a few weeks. To spare a little stress on the first day of school, I like to get the traditional “first day of school pictures” out of the way well in advance. It makes for a much more relaxing out-the-door experience on that first day. Here’s a
It seems like just the other day that I packed the “Last Pre-School Lunch” for Taylor. And today, Payton is having her last lunch as a pre-schooler. Sniff. Sniff. I’ve decided to carry on the traditional “last lunch” idea each year so Taylor was included today too with her “Last First Grade Lunch Ever”. Printable files are available for grades Pre-K through 5th here. You
Taylor has been looking forward to April Fool’s Day after reading Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew #19 where the girls solve an April Fool’s mystery. I decided to surprise her with a little lunchbox mix-up. She thought it was pretty funny. Chips in the sandwich container, sandwich in a fruit snack box, oranges in the chip bag, peanut butter balls in a Rice Crispy
