Fun Easter Lunch for the Kids

I had all these grand plans to do great things this Easter. Some of them got done but a lot of them are still in my “to do” pile. Crud. At 6am when I was getting ready to pack my kid’s lunch for school I remembered I wanted to pack their lunch a little differently. Lame-o planning on my part. I quickly checked out my recyclables in the garage (for craft projects, of course) and found 2 egg cartons. I filled the egg cartons with plastic Easter eggs and filled each egg with a small portion of my kid’s lunch.

 
I made a pb&j sandwich and cut it into small cubes. A peeled cutie orange in a couple of eggs. Two quarters went into one egg for them to buy milk. A few pieces of candy for dessert went into a few eggs and a couple of potato chips.
 
I wasn’t sure what my kids would think. But at this point I’m thinking this looks pretty cool.
 
When I dropped my kids off at before school CARE my daughter went into her backpack to get out her notebook. She looked up and had this strange look on her face and asked “what’s this?” I told her it was er lunch and she screamed “NO WAY!” and then threw her arms around me. I can’t believe I almost didn’t do this thinking I didn’t have the time. Yeah!
 
Wouldn’t your kids love to sit at the table on Easter as you served them breakfast or lunch in this?  Thank you Gluesticks for this great idea!

 

Happy Easter!

  2. I love it! I may just borrow this for my little munchkin on Easter:) He is not in school or even regular day care yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make things fun…
