SPRING IS IN THE AIR!
Flowers are blooming! Bees are buzzing! And of course lots of excited young’uns are scurrying about, frolicking in the sunshine like kittens on Red Bull.
It’s possible your kids are just excited about spring break; but in all likelihood they’re already looking ahead to summer. Help keep those little minds focused on the last few months of school by celebrating all things spring! I’ve pulled together some of my favorite spring-themed lunch notes to help put some fresh fun in your kids’ lunch.
When it comes to ideas for springtime lunch notes, just look out the window. Plants, flowers, and trees; butterflies, bugs and other creepy-crawlies; birds, frogs, picnics — you get the picture. And don’t forget Earth Day is April 22!
There’s no shortage of springy characters to be found in comics, video games, TV and children’s books. L to R, top row: Bulbasaur (Pokémon), Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy), Curious George, Clayface (DC Comics/Batman). Middle row: Wasp (Marvel comics/movies), Toad (Super Mario games), Kermit the Frog, Ant-Man* (Marvel). Bottom row: Red (Angry Birds), Spider-Man, Superman, Poison Ivy (DC Comics/Batman).
For the inevitable soggy, spring day, cheer up your house-bound kids with this deluge of weather-themed notes.
HOP TO IT
But spring is at its springiest at Easter; and no one reps this fertile season better than bunnies. Not surprisingly, rabbits can be found in abundance in every genre of kids’ books and entertainment.
From gaming, Raving Rabbids‘ harried hares; and from Wallace & Gromit, the garden-ravaging Were-Rabbit (also available for Halloween lunch notes).
Finally, the most famous rabbits of all: Bugs Bunny and the Easter Bunny (here shown as the Hugh Jackman-voiced iteration from Rise of the Guardians).
So lunch-makers and doodle-drawers, what makes you think of spring most? What other ways are you and your kids enjoying the warmer weather?
