The holidays are nearly here! One fun and easy way to start to get into the holiday spirit is by creating fun holiday themed lunches for your kids! My boys always love it when they open up their lunchbox and see a fun themed surprise and Christmas lunch box jokes or sweet note from mom inside!
Here’s a cute holiday lunchbox idea to get you started and some cute holiday lunchbox jokes, too, you can include in your child’s lunches this year.
I created this simple lunchbox with just a few key ingredients and with Rudolph as my inspiration! I always like to add a small cut piece of tissue paper to my lunchboxes as it adds so much color and fun to the lunch! This time, I used a sparkly red tissue paper I already had on hand.
Now, make a PB&J sandwich, or whatever type of sandwich your children prefer. Use a circle cookie cutter or grab a tupperware container or cup to use as your cuter and cut out a round head. Top the sandwich with two chocolate chips or raisins for eyes and a raspberry to create Rudolph’s red nose. Add four pretzels, two stacked on each side, to create antlers.
I finished off the lunch by making melon balls with cantaloupe and watermelon using a small cookie scoop. They resemble little round ornaments in the lunchbox and give a lot of color and a healthy kick to the lunchbox. Finally, I tossed in a small salad and small tomatoes which give the lunch a beautiful pop of red and green to keep with the holiday theme.
Finally, I added a fun holiday lunchbox joke note for my son. He’ll love sharing the joke with everyone at his lunch table and it’s sure to brighten his day at school! This particular joke is one of my personal favorites for the holidays: “Why did the Elf go to school?”
“to learn his ELFabet!”
Adding a joke to the lunchbox was a breeze. I used a permanent marker and just wrote up the joke and a little note from mom!
Here are some easy holiday lunchbox jokes you can write up and add to your child’s lunchbox this year:
