Fortnite School Lunch Idea

Fortnite Battle Royale

If you're a parent of a kid who's into video games then you've definitely had a conversation with them about Fortnite. You've probably experienced the game firsthand. On second thought, you're probably extremely tired of hearing about it. I know I am.

We haven't even let my eight-year-old play it but it is still all he can talk about. He pulled one of those, "everyone in my class has Fortnite." Of course my wife and I laughed when said it. However, his teacher said that is actually probably true. Anyway, he still doesn't have the game but I thought it would be fun to make him a Fortnite lunch. I'm going to be honest here, I have no idea about the skins, or characters, or pretty much anything else. But Google is my friend so I found these things in the game to put in the lunch. So if you want to make your own, the ingredients are below!

Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Lunch

How to make a Nintendo Super Mario Bros. Ultimate lunch for your kids!

Well, it's January, my kids went back to school, and I was out of ideas for special lunches. For the past month it's been all about Christmas so it was hard to wrap my head around what else to make them. Then it came to me. They were so excited to get Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the mail from Nintendo, so I thought I would make them lunches based on the game.

I realized that I haven't made them very many lunches based on video games, but the amount of characters in Super Smash Bros. makes it a great candidate because the possibilities are endless! I wanted to include so many more of their favorites such as Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Link from The Legend of Zelda. But sadly I ran out of time, energy, and space in the lunchbox. I settled for Super Mario, Kirby, Yoshi's egg, and a Pokeball from Pokemon. I guess I might have to do a sequel lunch sometime down the road. Until then, here are the ingredients I used for each character or the character's item!

An Easy Buddy the Elf Christmas Lunch

How to make an easy Buddy the Elf Christmas movie lunch for your kids!

It's almost Christmas and I'm almost out of lunch ideas. Thankfully this is the last day to make a special lunch before my kids are off for a few weeks, and then I can recharge. I wanted to go out with a simple but super fun bang though. Basically, if you can cut a triangle, you can make this Elf lunch. It is always one of our favorite Christmas movies to watch each year. It's definitely in my top three along with A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation.

The point is, you can do this. You can make this lunch for your kids. I just made a green spinach wrap tortilla sandwich, placed it above a mop of Buddy the Elf's curly hair (orange corkscrew pasta), and surrounded it with an homage to the way he decorated the store with tons of snowflakes. Throw in a few red and green touches and you are finished! It's really easy. Read below for the rest of the recipe and have a very merry Christmas. Just remember, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing aloud for all to hear!"

A Christmas Story Fra-Gee-Lay Lunch

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Top Christmas movies

"Fra-Gee-Lay! It must be Italian." The old man was so excited have this crate delivered to his door. You know the leg lamp was his major award. A Christmas Story is unequivocally the best Christmas movie of all-time. The list continues with Christmas Vacation second, and Elf coming in third. You can fight me if you want, but you would still be wrong.  Because A Christmas Story is tops, I of course had to make my annual lunch celebrating this cinematic masterpiece.

Since I have made A Christmas Story lunches before, I wanted to try and take a different angle with this one. I featured the wooden crate that the lamp came in, along with the famous Bumpus hounds and the turkey theft that they are known for. I also had to give you a sneak peek at a few of my favorite Christmas decorations. I have most of the collection of A Christmas Story lighted village. It's my pride and joy around this time of year. I ask for new pieces every year. And if you still doubt my family's love for the movie you will want to follow us at @lunchboxfamily. We have a special surprise coming for you!

Until then, read the recipe below and let me know your favorite seen from the movie!

The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Lunch

School lunch ideas

If you've been around my blog for awhile, you are well aware of my family's fondness for the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. Well, despite the fact that this Disney movie is known as a Halloween and Christmas film, I have somehow never made a Jack Skellington lunch for Christmas. It has only been for Halloween. I know, I know, I'm having a hard time forgiving myself for this one. Hopefully this lunch will get me back on the nice list with my kids and the big guy in the red suit!

The Grinch Christmas Lunch

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss

You're a mean one mister Grinch! But you are also pretty tasty. Especially when you are in a spinach tortilla sandwich with turkey! The Grinch is such a legend n Christmas lore and we are so excited to see the new movie. My family is obviously huge fans of How the Grinch Stole Christmas that I had to make a new lunch to celebrate the new movie coming out.

The Grinch is actually one of the first lunches that I made during my first year of trying this fun lunch making thing out. I actually created the lunch live on a morning television show with my daughter. That time I used a green apple but I wanted to go a different route this time. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I hope my kids will be as well. Keep reading to find out all of the ingredients and directions!
