When does summer vacation officially begin for your kids’ school? I know, the majority of us have been remote learning since March, and will continue for the remainder of the school year, but summer break is still something to look forward to! We all know the one time of day that having them all home can cause a bit of chaos however, and that’s lunch! To make sure your crew doesn’t get bored with the same thing every day—and you don’t want to pull your hair out trying to plan midday meals all summer long—here are 50 Easy Lunch Ideas for Kids that are as simple, as they are delicious!
My boys will pretty much eat anything that isn’t nailed down, including all fresh vegetables, fruits, salad and a lot of things most kids will turn their noses up at. But I still like to make sure lunch is both fun and tasty; and when I can find meals they can help make, that’s icing on the cake! Little hands will love getting in the kitchen to make some of the ideas in this round up. They can help add sprinkles to the Graham Cracker Goodies, roll the Grilled Cheese Dippers, and stir the homemade ketchup for the Pretzel Dogs!
