My second grader loves for me to stick notes inside his lunch box. Sometimes I write a silly knock-knock joke or riddle for him to tell his friends. This December, I think it will be fun for him to count down the days to Christmas with his lunch notes.
I don’t pack a creative lunch for him everyday, but when I saw how easy it is to make a cute snowman out of a bagel, I couldn’t resist. All you need is half a bagel, cream cheese, a carrot stick, black olives and raisins.
To Make the Bagel Snowman:
Spread cream cheese to cover bagel. Place 2 sliced black olives for eyes, stick the carrot in the center of the bagel for his nose, and use raisins to create a mouth.
I tossed in some white marshmallows (“snow balls”), and fruit and veggies on the side. I thought about putting some stick pretzels in there as “snowman arms” – but we were out of pretzels, so I’ll save that idea for next time. I’m sure he’ll request another snowman lunch before winter is over.
Spread Holiday Cheer with BIC Mark-it® Permanent Markers
My Christmas Countdown lunchbox note is simply a circle shaped ornament I drew with a BIC Mark-it® Permanent Marker (#SummerMelon color). I think this advent will be a fun way for my son to count down the days to the holidays.
BIC Mark-it® permanent markers come in 44 vibrant colors, so I can use a different color for his lunchbox every day. Besides all the great colors (including 8 cool metallics) I like using the markers because they are low odor and acid-free.
