Another One Bites the Dust

What is that on the frost covered picnic table you ask??? Well it is the broken top to our previously last remaining unbroken snack sized box. That makes five we have gone through in the last 6 months! Three Disney boxes and two Ichiban Kan boxes (like the red one above).

We are still using the boxes with bands around them and probably will continue for a while. (Mainly because I just used my extra money to buy two new lunch boxes... more on those next week!)

But for next year I'd like to get some more snack size boxes that are VERY sturdy. I will need THREE snack boxes because A will start preschool in the fall. Anyone have any suggestions? They need to be small (+/-500ml??- is that about the size of those Disney boxes?), sturdy but not too hard for a 3/4 year old to open.
Snack today was carrots, graham crackers with creme cheese and apples. That is not dirt on the crackers by the way, it is cinnamon. I made sure to point that out to the boys. I could just see them coming home and saying something like "Mom, I didn't eat the crackers because they had dirt on them" (like I might actually send them to school with dirt on their food??)

Lunch was a silly guy sandwich of creme cheese and jelly with cracker and dried cranberry eyes, grapes and a cookie.
A and I joined the big boys for lunch today. This is my lunch. I had tuna filled sushi rice things, cucumber salad, grapes and cheddar.

Here is A's lunch. He had grapes, a cookie, a few fish crackers and a cat shaped sandwich. The ears didn't quite come out so you'll just have to trust me... it was a cat shape.

One Sack Lunch and One Laptop Lunch

E had a field trip today so he needed a "disposable sack lunch". He had a juice pouch, banana, tortilla rollup in the foil, fruit leather, a cheese stick and crackers and cranberries. I went on the field trip too as a chaparone. As a plus, they had way more time than usual to eat thier lunch but as a minus, they ate at 10:30am so they weren't too hungry. E didn't eat his banana or the crackers and cranberries but finished everything else. My lunch was SO boring that I couldn't bring myself to take a picture...
Above is S's lunch. He wanted juice to and it actually worked out well in the laptop lunchbox. The juice took up some space so he actually had time to finish most of the food in the box! He had peanuts, cranberries, a rollup, salad with dressing, juice, oranges and a fruit rollup.
For snack he had apples and crackers with peanut butter.
