It’s back to school time already and I can hardly wrap my brain around it! Today’s post is a fun one! I have some creative lunch notes that your kids will love. But these are not your average lunch notes. Your kids will love these printable Lunch Time Bingo Cards as well as the fun Lunch Packing Guide.
Packing lunches can be tricky for kids to do on their own if they do not understand the various food groups and needs for their bodies. Teach them how to use the Lunch Packing Guide to help them make good choices. Hang it on your fridge or inside your cupboard in a place kids can see it.
Some ideas for a well-balanced lunch include a can of Horizon® yogurt, an apple, some carrot sticks, and a bagel with cream cheese or nut butter spread. We love Horizon yogurt! We picked up these cups at Walmart and love the yummy flavor options. They have vanilla, blueberry, strawberry and lime. I love and trust the Horizon brand. Yogurt is a nice easy treat that can be easily eaten anywhere straight from the cup! Plus they have ingredients moms can feel good about offering live and active cultures.
Make lunch time lots more fun for your kids with these printable lunch time bingo notes. Your kids can use them in the lunch room or anywhere they may be eating their lunches. They can use them to spot items people around them may be eating and fill up their Bingo cards. There are four different versions of the Bingo cards, so they can bring extras to share with their friends and see who wins first!
Also, if you want to encourage independence with lunch packing, I created a little printable lunch packing guide for kids that has the various food groups divided out encouraging kids to choose one item from each of the sections. It helps kids learn about balanced meals as well as teaching them to pack their lunches on their own. The guide uses pictures so even little kids can do it on their own if they are not yet readers.
