The Emoji Movie Lunch

Monday, August 28, 2017


I can't believe that I'm about to say this but the lunch today is the second emoji lunch I have made. I hate emojis, but I love my kids. In fact, I firmly believe that every time I have to use an emoji on social media, a piece of my soul dies. Is this a little overdramatic? Maybe. Or maybe not. Maybe I'm just Meh about the whole thing.

So a little while back we took our kids to go see The Emoji Movie. My kids were begging to see it and it was pretty much the only kids movie in the theatre at the time. They thought it was hilarious, so now that school is back in session, I thought I would make this lunch to help them smile during their lunch break. This should be proof that the lunches I make them are for their enjoyment! Anyway, if your kids are into The Emoji Movie, then this would be fun to make for them!

back to school

It's back to school time which means it is time to start making lunches for your kids again. It seems like every school year you start out with good intentions, but then life hits, and you forget all about those plans you had. I know, I've been there. Well hopefully I can help you to start out the year with a little bit more fun in your kids' lunchboxes. In my family, just making one fun lunch a week for my kids helps them to look forward to Mondays at school and it helps bring us closer together. So today I want to help you to make a Back to School Sandwich Monster Lunch in a PackIt bento box and freezable lunch bag.

I really like PackIt bags because they remove the need for extra ice packs. You just pop the bag in the freezer overnight and the built-in freezable gel will keep food cool for hours! By morning the walls of the bag will be completely frozen and ready to chill your kid's lunch, just like a fridge. It is super convenient. Their new line of bento boxes also helps make it easy to pack healthy meals for your family. So if your little monsters are ready for school (and you are as well), why not make the beginning of the year a little more fun by building this sandwich monster lunch for them? Here is how to do it!
