PB&J Paper Sandwich, Cheese Pencil, & Eraser Treat…

We included Cheez-it Scrabble Crackers. These are awesome & kids will love making words with them!


Cut a red apple in half. You will want to add a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning. You can carve any grade in the apple, but a A+ will definitely make them smile!:)

Here is my very happy 2 year old with his Back to School Bento!

    That is really creative. The apple with the A+ could also work for an primary school teacher.
