Back To School: Bean Sprout & Bella

The sproutlets went back to school today! New First Grader Sprout got her Back to School themed Go Green Lunchbox as requested:

She has a notebook paper peanut butter sandwich, Fig Newtons speared with an apple pick, Red Delicious apple wedges, yogurt with ABC & 123 sprinkles, raspberries & strawberries with a 1 pick (for 1st grade), and iced tea to drink.

Bella said she was looking forward to an "epic" lunch for the first day of 5th Grade. Uh oh. Just a wee bit of pressure there, heheh. I was pressed for time and hadn't given it much thought to it ahead of time, but I did my best :

She too has notebook paper (made using food markers), but hers is a Fold-it flatbread pizza sandwich, filled with marinara sauce & cheese. She also got sunburst tomatoes on a star spear, cantaloupe, cucumber & carrots with Read & Write food picks, and little apple cups filled with dried strawberries & a couple of Chocorooms pretzel treats, atop a couple of Fig Newtons. Unsure if it qualified as "epic",  I added a note to the sandwich for good measure :)

Pickle requested a plain square peanut butter sandwich, yogurt, string cheese, and Oreo. No need to photograph that ;) And Beanstalk wanted the school lunch! Birdie's not back in preschool yet, and a good thing too - I am out of practice at time crunch lunch packing!


Stuff used to make these lunches:


  1. Love the epic lunch :) I felt a bit rushed today too, guess I am also out of practice.

  2. Love them! Especially the Epic lunch :D

  3. These are so great! Love the lined paper bread. ❤

  4. Hehe the bread paper is the best! Might have to 'steal' that one! ;)

  5. These are so fun! LOVE the paper bread :)
