The most stressful part of our morning routine is getting everyone’s lunch packed. With three kids going to school now this year, I knew I needed to streamline the process. I created this What to Pack for School Lunch checklist to do just that.
I post it on the inside of our lunch snack cabinet, and the kids are in charge of packing their own lunches. They can make their own choices as long as they meet the requirements on the checklist. I still help with washing and cutting fruit, and assembling sandwiches, but they make their own decisions as to what each item will be and bring me all the supplies.
Before they can close up their lunch bags, they bring it to me to review and to ge their lunch note – for kids, that’s the best part! See how to make a daily lunch note for kids doable here.
Slip your printable checklist into a sheet protector and use a dry erase marker to add options under each category or to let your kids check off the list each morning as they pack their own lunch!
