Today wraps up Teacher Appreciation Week! All week long I've been noticing the wonderful ways my fellow parents have been recognizing & thanking their children's teachers for all they do, but until last night I felt too cruddy to make an effort myself. I loved what Shannon of BentoLunch.net did for her kidlets' teachers - Starbucks gift cards with a punny thank-you note, so that's what I did too. And Starbucks was happy to give me a stack of cup sleeves with my gift card purchase :) Here are mine - I love how they turned out! ♥
I'm over the flu and back in business! I said I was just going to let them eat pizza at school today, but I ended up making a few lunches after all :) Quite last minute as it happens, since it was the sproutlets who decided they didn't want the school's pizza!
A big thank-you to ALL the teachers out there - at school and at home!

Beanstalk got NatureBox Zingy dried Currants, a granola square, SmartFood popcorn, a fruit leather star, Gala apple rings with star centres, and applewood smoked ham on teeny star picks, packed in his PlanetBox.
Bella got SmartFood popcorn, Fig Newtons, applewood smoked ham, Gala apples, carrot slices, and 2 tomato balloons - because today is my LEGO lunch Box's blog birthday, so I made one tomato balloon for an Instagram birthday greeting, and rather than waste it, Bella got it plus another - packed in her usual EasyLunchboxes container.
This is the birthday greeting I used the other tomato in - I had fun making it! The balloon string picks are part of a cute bento accessory set that also includes rings, hands & feet, flower stems, & umbrella handles :)
And here's one of Bella's from this past week. It was originally intended for Beanstalk, but then he ended up staying home sick so I added mozzarella and fig newtons to the ham, carrots, apples & roasted vegetable crackers I had already packed in a LunchBots Quad for him, and gave it to her :)
Hey, it's Friday! Happy Week End to All!
