How to Bring Christmas Happiness in Your Kid’s Lunchbox

Children may not say it and they are amazingly resilient, but 2020 has been a difficult year for them too. Why not turning our lunch boxes into an advent calendar and bring Christmas happiness during lunchtime? Here are some lunchbox ideas that will transport children to Christmas wonderland.

Idea 1 – The easiest way is a letter from Santa Claus and lunchbox notes from the Elves

Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for the children of J.R.R. Tolkien, the famous author of the Lord of the Rings. Inside would be a letter in a strange, spidery handwriting and a beautiful colored drawing or painting. The letters were from Father Christmas and they were sharing wonderful tales of life in the North Pole.

It is so cool getting personalized letters from Santa, don’t you think? So why not start this month of December the same way, including a letter from Santa, in the first lunchbox of this magical month, on December 1st? If you don’t have time, can come to the rescue and help you get beautiful personalized letters (and 10% of all profits from goes to Toys for Tots!). Then insert a Christmas lunchbox note in your kid’s lunch box that will surely bring joy at lunchtime!
