Today we are going into another heart overload with a valentine lunchbox. My kids love that I take the extra time to include messages in their lunchboxes from time to time. When holidays like Valentine’s Day come around, I tend to go over the top and include all sorts of fun surprises.
This heart crazed lunchbox adventure started with a set of heart shaped cookie cutters I recently purchased, and Pinterest of course!
Earlier this week I started small. I snuck in a little heart here and there, like the tiny heart cut out of the corner of the bread.
Each day, they have opened their lunch to find a little valentine lunchbox surprise. We are nuts about cheese in our family, so the heart cheese with crackers were a hit!
The apple sauce got a little makeover with an adorable tag attached to it. There is a personal message written on the back.
While the kids were innocently sleeping, I began by carving a message into a banana with the a spoon handle. A few hours later, the hidden message appeared on the skin.
My son is not a fan of bananas, but he goes crazy for pineapple. Aren’t they the cutest pineapples ever?
Speaking of fruit, the heart shaped strawberries on the heart shaped food pick were a fun to eat treat.
Today I used the larger heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the crusts off of their sandwiches.
I didn’t want to waste the crust, so the husband received an extra special breakfast this morning.Thanks for visiting today. Be sure and check out the other Valentine posts here on the blog.
