Do you ever get in the lunch dull-drums? We do! I regularly struggle wondering what we should have for lunch for the kids (and/or myself). Here are some of the brilliant suggestions we have found to make lunch fun, simple and sometimes silly.
Have a lunch:
Lunch on a stick. Make a skewer of your sandwich ingredients: Family.com
