DIY lunch box

It’s that time of year! Gosh, I always feel like summer just starts and then it’s time to start seeing all the school supplies lining the shelves again. Every year we get the kids new lunch boxes for school and I am always underwhelmed with the selection. This year we decided to take the matter into our own hands and have come up with DIY lunch boxes that are cute, personalized and so fun for the new school year ahead.

I’ve partnered with Jif® Power Ups ™ to make lunches that will stand out this year. Here are three different ways to make your own homemade lunchbox look it’s best for the school year ahead.

DIY lunch box ideas

DIY Lunch Box With a Pouch

The first DIY lunch box we came up with was one with an adorable pencil pouch on the outside, which is the perfect space to store the morning snack without making kids dig through their entire lunch. As the kids get older it can be a great spot to stash treat money, or jewelry they want to take off before running outside for recess.

Why they make pencil pouches so much pretties than lunch boxes, I do not know.

To make the pencil pouch DIY lunch box you will need:

1. Take the pencil pouch and hot glue it to the top of the lunch box.

Fill the pouch with Jif® power up Granola bars and let the kids have a morning snack makes you feel good about feeding them a snack made with Jif® peanut butter goodness your family knows and loves. The bars have no corn syrup, and a great taste all my kids love!

DIY flower lunch box

DIY lunch box with flowers

I have a flower lover in my house and when I told her we could get a bright yellow lunch box and top it with flowers this year – she basically went mad with glee!

To make the DIY flower lunchbox you will need:

  • A plain ol’ lunch box
  • Felt flowers
  • Hot glue

1. Make your own felt flowers or find pre-made ones to make it easier and glue them to the top of the lunch box. The best thing about using hot glue for these projects is that the lunch box decorations can easily be taken off whenever you want a fresh start.

A new lunch box every week? That sounds great to me.

You can grab all these supplies for DIY lunch box making and basically everything else you need for back to school at Target! Whatever your lunch box looks like, filling it with Jif Power Ups creamy clusters and granola bars will make your kid’s box the envy of the lunch table exchange game. The bars have all the goodness I want and a taste my kids love.

PS. Or just stick some stickers on those lunch boxes.
