Making School Lunch Fun - Include a Fun Surprise
It's no secret that the toy hidden at the bottom of the box is the main reason children love fast-food kid's meals. This magic can easily be recreated in school lunches. Use bento-style lunch boxes that have multiple compartments for a creative Japanese-inspired meal. (If you use prepackaged lunches, peel back the plastic, then seal it back up with tape.) Then send your child off for the day, totally unaware of the fun surprise that awaits them at noon.
