Back to School time… 2012!
Wow.. where does the time go! If you have read this blog for a bit…you already know that we are HUGE fans of the PLANET BOX lunchbox system (you can read my first post here). This is our 3rd school year to use the Planet Box lunch box, yes the SAME ONE we bought in Kindergarten! Here are a few more resources for PLANET BOX (and Bento box) lovers everywhere! 🙂
What we pack in our Planet Box–
Big Boy B was a bit board the last few days before school started so I asked him if he would put together a “menu” for his planet box (so mommy could plan a bit better and not have to strain her brain to come up with a new lunch menu at ‘o dark thirty in the morning!) Here is what he came up with, love the color coding (wonder who he gets that from!)
We also found this handy dandy grocery shopping “idea” list for the planet box on their site- Planet Box Shopping List
How we carry our Planet Box:
Washable Neoprene Bag (this is the one we prefer because it has a HANDLE)
I also found a few at Ross Dress for less that fit it too…by Targus like this one.
* note: the first planet box we ordered we had the planet box case which was super cool and fit it very well…but unfortunately it is not machine washable…and with the way we dirty stuff up around here…a washable option was a MUST for us! So we used the planet Box case for kindergarten and found this washable one for 1st grade. The stainless steel Planet box is on year 3 and no worse for the wear!! LOVE THAT!
Some of our favorite Planet Box “Accessories”:
Happy First Day of School! Have a Great Year!
