Fun with Lunch – Muffin Tin Inspiration

Lunch.  Lunch can become boring for kids and they become uninterested and picky.  At least that is what has happened to my kiddies.  While browsing blogs I came across 2 really cute blogs FULL of ideas on making fun lunches.  They are:

Muffin Tin Mom and Lunch in a Box; Building a Better Bento

Inspired by other blog moms once again, I set out.  I had cutters so I didn’t need to get any.   I did pick up the muffin tins at the Dollar Tree and then some cupcake liners at my local grocery store.  I picked up 10 packs of fruit leather (.50/each), pretzels, crackers, cheese, almonds, turkey and cookies.

It was fun and the kids were so excited when they came to the table, that is a first!  Thanks for the inspiration ladies!
