I won’t lie, it’s kind of hard for me to believe that back to school is right around the corner. It seems like we just started our break!
My solace for lazy summer days coming to an end is that I get to go back to school shopping at Target. My love for Target is intense on a good day… but add in school supplies and we’ve reached a whole new level of happy.
My love for fresh, new school supplies didn’t stay behind in my childhood — it’s alive and well today, thank you very much. Target has so many cute and amazing products to love. I love picking up all the things my boys need.. plus a couple of things for my home office, as well.
I’ll admit — I get excited over new highlighters and notebooks, but I don’t especially love packing lunches. But it’s a necessity when you’re mama bear. Thankfully, Target has me covered when it comes to lunches as well!
They offer amazing products that the kids love, making it simple for me to stock up during our weekly runs. I’m able to keep my lunchbox supplies fully stocked with must-haves like Kleenex(R) Wet Wipes, Danimals, and NABISCO snacks, so putting together lunches is easy. They offer so many great varieties and convenience, you can’t go wrong. Save up to 10% on select snacks and essentials in the Target app with Cartwheel through 9/2!
Our nightly routine is a kitchen dance party after dinner and dishes are done. We pop on the music — each kiddo gets to pick one song — and then it’s time to bust a move. As we jive around the kitchen, I put together lunches, assembly-line style on the counter. The boys love helping to grab their favorites to pop in as well, like Honey TEDDY GRAHAMS(R) Snacks.
Do you need a little lunch inspiration of your own? Let me share this fun idea with you! You can also check out more lunch ideas for this back-to-school season at www.backtolunch.com.
We have lots of compartment lunch containers in our cupboard, making it quick to put together this easy kid’s lunch. You could even use little baggies as well if you’d like.
For the main course, my guys love roll-ups with ranch for dipping. I wash and dry off lettuce leaves, then take slices of cheddar cheese and lunchmeat to layer and roll in the lettuce. I slice for easy eating and place into the container. I used honey ham but you could also use turkey or roast beef if your kids prefer.
Sliced apples and celery sticks are a simple addition that my boys really enjoy. It’s hard to beat that naturally sweet, satisfying crunch!
Danimals(R) Strawberry Explosion Squeezables Kids’ Yogurt is both fun and yummy to eat. And of course, don’t forget the Honey TEDDY GRAHAMS(R) Snacks.
Lettuce Roll-up Lunch:
- 3 slices honey ham (or meat of choice) (1.5 oz.)
- 1 slice cheddar cheese (1 oz.)
- Lettuce leaves
- 6 celery sticks
- 1 Tbsp. Ranch Dressing
- 1/2 cup apple slices
- Honey TEDDY GRAHAMS(R) snacks
- Danimals(R) Strawberry Explosion Squeezables
I learned early on with my guys that they manage to get themselves messy almost constantly. As such, I always tuck a package of Kleenex(R) Wet Wipes Gentle Clean into their lunchboxes as well, so that they can wipe their sticky fingers and cheeks off when lunch is done. I’ve been known to use them while packing lunches, as well, they’re excellent!
I hope your family has a wonderful back to school season. Be sure to stock up at Target now — and then get ready for your own lunch-making kitchen dance party soon!
