Every so often I have a “mom” idea that actually works. My kids and their backyard friends had reached a stand-off; they couldn’t agree on a game to play and wanted to move the games indoors for a change of scenery. Of course, channeling my own mother, there’s no playing inside on gorgeous days. So, I put up my 10×10 farmer’s market tent, gave each of them a recycled canvas lunch bag to decorate, and the creativity began! The youngest (4) labeled his “rocks” then when on a treasure hunt to fill the bag. Yes- they were all happy- and occupied for the next three hours. Certainly not wanting to interfere with creative geniuses, I filled my tea, grabbed a book, and chalked one up for mom!
Not just for lunches, the Recycled Canvas Lunch bag can be used for anything (even rocks!). They are machine washable too. Have fun decorating your own, or we’ll be glad to do it for you.
