I am stressing out about my kids going back to school and having to pack them both lunches all over again. This year was nice in a way because I didn’t have to rush and worry about getting them ready in the morning and feeding them breakfast as well as pack lunches. Thank you for the cool ideas!
I hear that, Amie! I hope that you found some fun ideas! We have more fun lunch on the blog, too!
These after school snacks are so cute! I want to make something special for my kids after their first day back. Hopefully relatively healthy because they have a pediatric dentist follow up appointment coming up haha! Thanks for sharing!
We are so glad that you enjoyed these idea, Jackie! Good luck at the dentist!
