Easy school lunches

My oldest daughter is going to 1st grade this year. I have been freaking out, not about her teacher or her school, but about her lunches. What should I use as container? making it fun, healthy, good, something she’ll eat….

I have been doing so much research, you have no idea. Totally freaked out, right? LOL

After so many worries, pictures and materials I have come to a decision, I can only give her what she will eat, everything else is just for show! So here is what I came up with, any combination of the following would be just fine and she would love them too:

lunch box stuff

Now, these are all based on what my kid likes. I am planning on adding to this list as time goes by. Shoot, I might just give her money to buy her lunch at school on Fridays, it’s pizza day . You can do something similar for your child with all the things that she/he likes. Of course, making the lunch look cute is up to you.  Here are some of the things I think are useful to me which you can find in Amazon under lunch:

Cookie/veggie/cheese cutters

Disposable container with three areas for food
Rectangular silicone baking cups
Thermos for hot meals such as soup, pasta, etc…
    • Contigo Autoseal Kids Trekker Cup, 14-Ounce, Magenta
      Water cup with lid. I like the ones without straws.
    •  
    • Lunch box. This is actually really firm inside.

      Ice coolers. to keep things fresh

       

ART CAMP 2014

SAM_3224_2OMG! Did I have fun doing art camp this year? YES. Yes I did. I have been extremely impressed with the quality and talent the children brought to these classes. THEY WERE AMAZING!!

I had 5 different sessions during the 2014 summer. I taught 5 yrs old and up. they created and learned all kinds of things. The classes begun with an introduction to “liquid watercolors” and water color paper. Learning about the differences of “tooth” or “roughness” of different paper. They also learned about perspective and how objects seem to change in size when seen from a distance.

We also talked and learned about making prints with ink and foams on paper. Learned about the differences between watercolors and acrylics. The Final projects were done on canvas with acrylics. This was their favorite project through out the week of camp. Here are some examples of the work done or you can always visit my “Arts and Crafts with Belle” website to see more. Maybe if you are in the Las Vegas area you might want to join in.
