Henry's Lunchbox - Week 10

This week Henry packed 4 days of school lunches. He used his hot lunch thermos for baked beans

Midweek Henry asked me to start sending notes in his lunchbox. Another child in his class gets a friendly note from his dad every day and he asked me if I could send notes too. With a quick internet search, I found several cute and free printable lunch note templates. I printed out a few sets that I think will work well for a preschooler who is not yet reading. I'm not sure that I will remember to send them every day, but he was excited to see one taped to his lunchbox.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
