Fave Friday / Back to School

weelicious book | La La Lovely BLog

A few favorite (back to schoolish) things /

1 / Cool school lunches.  I checked out Weelicous Lunches from the library and then I renewed it and now I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to buy it.  I’m completely . . .



inspired to make my kids healthy and fun lunches.  I’m also sold on the bento box lunch idea.  I’ve got my eye on the PlanetBox ones.  Do any of you use them?  On a side note, my older two make their own lunches, so I’m excited to get creative and healthy with them.  I usually loathe packing lunches.  I hope the excitement lasts.  ps- OMG these forks!

2  / New haircuts and shirts.  The boys had some wild surfer hair going on, which actually I was kind of sad to see go . . . but school.  They are feeling all kinds of new.  Shirts are by Warrior Poet.

3 / Fun backpacks.  We are loving this iridescent green one from J. Crew.  It’s a little small for La La’s books but it’s perfect for extra circular activities, like volleyball.  We don’t get new backpacks every year.  Some are passed down and some re-used if they are in good condition.  This year we are using last years.  But, if I was getting new ones for my boys, these monster ones would be coming home with us.

What are some of your favorite back to school items?

P.S. If you are working on getting into a routine around the house, now that school is here, I think this Gobs of Jobs Activity Chart is sooooo cute.  And, here is how we’ve been doing things at our house.

    we use ‘lunchbots” for our kids and have been for the past 2 years – they wash so easily and hold up really well. and it makes putting their lunch together fun with all of the cute compartments.
    also – the monster backpack – our son picked out the orange color and he can’t wait to use it next week. it’s super cute (and super bright!).
