Today is Pink and Gray Day for Kindergarten and I had some half-baked ideas involving pink yogurt and elephant-shaped sandwiches, but in the end this is what happened this morning:
Ethan and Paige took identical lunches to school (that's certainly not something you see every day!). Um, at least Paige's Thermos was pink? And the stainless steel is gray. Right?
They both had homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup, (leftover from last night's dinner) packed in Thermos FunTainer Jars.
On the side they each had shredded mexican cheese and tortilla chips packed in a Lunchbots Pico box.
These were packed in EasyLunchboxes thermal tote for the day. Besides the Thermos Food Jars and the Lunchbots of chips & cheese, they also each had milk in a Thermos FunTainer drink bottle. Although these are all bulky items, they all fit nicely in the EasyLunchboxes tote. Before zipping up the totes I wrapped each Thermos food jar in a clean dish towel to help insulate the heat. At first I was only going to do this for Ethan's, as he was really concerned that it wouldn't be warm enough by lunchtime. But then I decided to do it for Paige's too since since she's a super messy eater and having a towel on hand for soup didn't sound like a bad idea. ;-)
