School Lunches – these can be the hardest things to put together in the world. To find the creativity to do different and exciting things for the kids when they open them up. The truth be known I would rather order a lunch order every single day. This doesnt happen. Once a week Tuckshop occurs and this is on a day that I dont have to pack a lunch for my son.
So to throw a curve ball into action in the school yard – Kindy is doing Rainbows this term for the kids to learn their colours.
Last week we had to do a party shared morning tea – so I made a plate a Strawberry Jam Pinwheels for them all.
This week – it was normal but you had to wear the colour. I decided that I would also do a coloured lunch for the weeks any way.
Each week I will do a post listing the great foods that correspond to the colour that you have all helped me find.
