It’s almost time for kids to head back to school and that means it is also time to start thinking about school lunches.
Want to save yourself some time and simplify your mornings? Teach your kids to pack their own lunch. Our simple lunch printable makes it easy for kids to pack a balanced lunch and they’ll love being in charge of what goes in their lunch.
I love starting a school year out by creating routines for everything that needs to get done. I’ve found with kids, nothing helps them establish a routine better than having a visual to keep us on track so I love using printables.
We made this “pack your lunch” printable easy by printing it on our new HP Deskjet 3636, an adorable and affordable AiO that comes in 3 cool colors – Vibrant Red, Dragonfly Blue, Sporty Purple.
With three kids in school and a preschooler working with me at home this year, I know we will be doing a lot of printing so having a printer that could keep up with us was a must-have school supply.
I love the bright colors that the HP Deskjet 3636 comes in. We went with Dragonfly Blue and I love the way it adds a pop of color to our homework station. Walmart just started carrying them so it was really easy to just grab one while I was out running errands.
I get great quality every time I print on this and I am hooked on the original HP ink cartridges that let me print up to twice as many pages. I used to avoid printing at all cost but it’s so affordable with HP printers that I don’t worry about printing whatever I need to.
This printer even has a quiet mode so you don’t have to worry about making any noise if you are trying to print before the kids wake up for the day.
To really make packing school lunch simple, I bought some little plastic containers that I can fill up with everything we want to pack in our lunches for the first few weeks at school.
I used a separate container for every category on the printable (minus anything that needed to be kept in the fridge — you can just add those in when you are packing lunches).
Print a copy of the printable for each child that needs to pack a lunch and have them choose one food item from each category.
Your kids will learn to pack their own lunch and you won’t have to worry about them taking a lunch sack full of nothing but chips to school.
