Lunch Bag Art


Last year (1st grade) Spencer got to bring a snack each day to school. I would put his snack in a brown, lunch bag and draw something goofy on the bag just to give him a little smile. Now, Mr. Big Second Grader doesn't get snack breaks at school. He needs his insulated (Star Wars!) lunchbox so I can use a cold pack. But, he told me he missed my silly drawings.
So...I found freezer, quart size baggies that have a little white area on the front (for labeling) that holds his sandwich and provides a nice little canvas for some goofy lunch time art!
As you can tell, I still can't draw and my jokes and puns are awful--but Spencer loves it. I figure I have maybe one more year until stuff like this embarrasses him so I better enjoy it while it lasts!

Very cool! I do this to my DH sometimes, too. Of course, he's a bit older than Spencer. LOL

I used to do that with my son as well but I put them inside his lunchbox.
Don't let them fool ya though Cassandra you son probably will never get embrassed by things. My son at his age never gets embrassed when I show him affection in front of his friends etc. He had a hockey game last night and when he got home he called me to tell me thanks for coming to his game that he likes to see me in the crowd. Hugs to you and Spencer!
