Peter Rabbit Lunch

Peter Rabbit movie

Like many people, my family and I were so excited to see the Peter Rabbit movie this weekend. As a big fan of the books growing up, and after seeing the previews, and we couldn't wait to see it. We didn't read anything about the movie going into it but it we thought it would be a great time out. So in retrospect this lunch is just as much about the books as it is about the movie.

How to Make a PJ Masks Gekko Lunch

Monday, January 22, 2018

Paw Patrol

Out of time and energy but your kids still want a PJ Masks lunch? Maybe your kids are just addicted to PJ Masks like mine are? I'm actually not sure if my youngest enjoys Paw Patrol or PJ Masks more. All I know is that I usually have both theme songs stuck in my head. Is it normal for a grown man to know the names of Cat Boy, Gekko, and Owlette? Oh well, I'm sure if you're a parent you can relate.

This lunch is actually really easy because you are just turning a pear into a PJ Mask. I was stressed for time with this one so I took the easy way out but I like how it turned out. You can find out how to make a Gekko lunch for your own kids by following my directions below. I created this in an Easy Lunch Boxes container.

Star Wars Roasted Porg Lunch

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi

You know that feeling you get when your stomach is growling, there's a chill in the night air, and all you are wishing for is to light up the BBQ and have yourself some nice roasted Porg? What? You mean you can't relate to that? Well, you know who can? That's right, Chewbacca. Chewie knows that sometimes nothing hits the spot like Porg over an open fire. If you have no idea what I'm talking about you need to go watch Star Wars Episode VIII, The Last Jedi immediately.

I know that it hasn't received as much fanfare as Episode VII The Force Awakens but my kids and I loved it. Of course some of the parts they loved the most included the cute furry (feathery?) creatures known as Porgs. As soon as I saw them, I knew I would eventually be making a Porg lunch. However, when I saw the scene where (spoiler alert) Chewie roasted one like a chicken, I also knew that my lunch would take a dark turn. Why did I go this direction with the lunch? Because it was one of the funniest scenes in the movie! The looks that Porgs give Chewie are hilarious! You just have to watch the film. Until then, just make this Porg lunch for your kids. It is simple to throw together and it will feed their inner Resistance! FYI I used an Easy Lunch Boxes container for this one.

Paddington 2 Movie

I think we all have childhood memories of certain iconic characters from books, movies, and tv shows. Paddington Bear is certainly high on the list for many of us! I remember reading the books and being introduced to the joys of marmalade at a young age. My kids recently discovered Paddington the movie and have been streaming it over and over. Because of their new found love for the bear, and also because Paddington 2 comes out in theaters this Friday, January 12th, I thought it was time to create a Paddington school lunch.


I am pretty sure this recipe would be Paddington approved since it features a marmalade sandwich, plus there are easy homemade chips in the shape of the note from his coat! Will you take your kids to go see Paddington 2? The first Paddington was one of the most successful family films of all-time, and this sequel currently has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes! So stream the original Paddington to make a perfect family night at home before you hit the theater for a family night out watching Paddington 2. I know that Paddington sure brightens our kids' day and their world! You can get tickets to see Paddington 2 now by just visiting www.paddington2tickets.com. Don't forget to scroll down and download the FREE Paddington activity sheets that I have linked right after my Paddington Bear lunch recipe below!

The holidays can be one of the most stressful times of the entire year. Between the cooking, the guests, the parties, and the shopping, you almost need a vacation after the holidays in order to recover. However, what we've found is that instead of trying to keep your kids entertained to help relieve the stress, it is better to actually put them in the middle of all the chaos! Yes, I know, they are naturally already in the midst of the chaos, but we have some ideas to move them from being the cause to being the remedy. Here are three ways to make this happen.

Buddy the Elf School Lunch

Buddy the Elf

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! One of our favorite Christmas movies has to be Elf. Of course, this is true for many people out there. The movie has so many great lines. We just watched it again and my kids thought it was just as funny as last year. It truly is a Christmas classic. If you disagree, well, then you sit on a throne of lies.


Now I have to make one thing clear. There is no maple syrup involved in this lunch. I wouldn't judge anyone who poured it all over the spaghetti but I personally had to draw the line somewhere. You have to make that decision for yourself though. If you do make this lunch just be prepared to have your kids say, "I love you, I love you, I love you!" Have a merry Christmas!

5 Holiday Present Ideas For People of All Ages

Monday, December 11, 2017


We could all use a little more help picking out presents around the holidays. In fact, if you could give me some ideas for a Christmas present for my wife, I would really appreciate it! Beyond that, my family picked out five presents for the holidays that can work for kids on up to parents. They range form stocking stuffers to gifts that will make that special person's entire year. We picked out items that are especially fun to use together. This year, we even did something different. Instead of writing about each item we did a live video showing how each great each present is. So after you watch the video, check out the website for each present. You can also buy it from my Amazon store.

I haven't been paid to feature any of these products, but a few were sent to me for review. Others I bought myself. If you do buy any item through my Amazon store I will receive a small percentage back. I hope you and your family have a fantastic holiday season!
