I have loved making the kids Muffin Tin lunches this summer. It makes lunch fun. I would love to jump on the Bento bandwagon, but I just don't have the time. LOVE THE IDEA, and steal little things along the way... but most of the time I just fill the 6 cups with different foods. WELL, one day E decided she would make lunch for her and Bowden. (Parker was already a 1st grader).
This is what lunch looked like! She did a great job filling the spots, and next time we will talk about WHY I put what I do into the cups. She was so proud though.AND BOWDEN LOVED IT! Now, do you see a small problem with Bowden's muffin tin?
You see this smile, well, it can change in an instant!Check out the floor! See the problem now with Emaline's muffin tin for Bowden? B got a Sunny D but no straw! Oh, he was upset. This caused such a mess. I am still finding red sticky spots in my kitchen, AND we have to paint the chairs! That red drink under his booster did some major damage!
Have you tried muffin tin lunches? The kids will love the variety, and I hope you find some fun in putting it together!
