Make it! Collage Lunchbox
Healthy lunches and snacks are so important for children to take to school. Encouraging them to pack and choose what goes inside their lunchbox will help to make sure they are getting the right amounts of food needed to concentrate and last the long school hours. Ask them to choose their favorite fruits, sandwich toppings, snacks, drinks and ultimate treats, and they will be more motivated to eat the lot.
But just as important as the contents is the lunchbox itself. The whole lunchbox-packing-process would be useless if your kid was not proud of the lunchbox they were taking to school each day. Though it sounds crazy, an uncool lunchbox can be so embarrassing to bring out in front of friends and can absolutely be the cause of kids skipping lunch. Make sure they have a lunchbox they will be proud to fill with their food choices and even more proud to show off around the school grounds.
If there isn't a lunchbox out there that is quite cool enough for your child... let them make their own.
MAKE YOUR OWN COLLAGE LUNCHBOX
WHAT YOU NEED:
CHOOSE your favorite images to cover your lunchbox - use the template below or find your own in magazines, books, photographs, etc. The images in our templates were actually all taken from vintage school textbooks!
CUT out the images you have chosen and LAY them in place on your lunchbox.
GLUE the images down in place - we chose to overlap our images to avoid seeing any white from the tin.
COVER the whole lunchbox with mod podge - this adds a protective layer over the paper images and helps to keep them stuck down in place.
ALLOW your lunchbox to dry completely before adding any food inside and then PACK it up to take to school.
