Have you noticed? It's the end of August. Which means big yellow school buses with wheels are going 'round and 'round all over town. To honor the season, I have a few back-to-school-themed posts lined up for you this week, starting today with some lunch box inspiration.
Mari's birthday party, and would be a sweet way to send your little one off with some love as they settle into the school routine.
+ Sandwich fixings: bread, jam, cream cheese, peanut butter... what have you.
+ Heart-shaped cookie cutter (or get seasonal in October and use a pumpkin; tree in December, etc.)
Step one: cut your bread, inside the crust, with desired cookie cutter.
Step two: spread on your filler (these are organic cream cheese and strawberry jam on whole wheat bread), and make your sandwich.
I started out with the steps in reverse, and found that the shape didn't hold up as nicely when I had to cut through two pieces of bread plus the filling; it was a bit too think for my cookie cutter.
For the uber-organized mother - or for those of us who dream to be one - here are some lunch-packing tips and tools-of-the-trade, thanks to I Heart Organizing. Very Pin-worthy.
