Looking for ideas to put in your child’s school lunch on Valentine’s Day? You’ve come to the right place.
My kids bring their lunch to school nearly every day, so on holidays I always compete with the school lunch offered by school, which often includes a cookie or a piece of cake and, more often than not, pizza. Valentine’s Day is no exception. Luckily, there are so many crazy cool things that will earn you points with the kids for sending school lunch that way that you wouldn’t even believe it. Cold lunch on Valentine’s Day has never been so much fun!
Candy Box Lunch 1 of 10I'm going to start big. This is where you win the hearts of every child in the school. You sent lunch in a giant heart-shaped candy box. Bonus: Someone has to eat all those chocolates first.
