50 lunch box ideas

50+ Lunch Box Ideas!

Back to school time is coming next week for us but I know a lot of people have already gone back!

Are you excited?

I have been a preschool teacher for 7 years and a mom for 3, so I have just a bit of experience with the school lunch. I have created a few myself but seen even more and talked to many parents who get stuck with what to send their child in their lunch box.

That is why I gathered a small list of 50+ fun ideas beyond peanut butter and jelly! I hope it helps!!
