Back to school with tiny princess lunch box!


Well, I knew this day would come. I just wish it didn’t have to come so soon! :( I love when my tiny princesses are home from school and feel so lonely when they are gone.

But the day is here and I had to send them on their way. The good news is….. Now I get to share with you the “first day of school” lunches! ♥

Back to school with tiny princess lunchbox!

My fifth grade princess chose our new PURPLE Yubo that we won from Lunchbox Dad! She was SO excited when she found out that we won. The purple Yubo is something both tiny princesses have had their eyes on for a while!

Yesterday on the tiny princess lunchbox facebook page, I showed you a picture of my lunch prep for today’s lunches. Now you know what the Pop Rocks were for. ♥ Allison’s “5th grade rocks” lunch contains…

  • a round Nutella sandwich with “5th” cut outs and letter picks spelling “grade”. The Pop Rocks were added as a play on words. “5th Grade Rocks!” It was also a special treat for the first day of the school year!
  • Homemade apple shaped cheese crackers in an apple silicone cup. Just for more fun we added some red food coloring to a small amount of dough to make some red apple crackers to go with the regular ones.
  • Yellow silicone cup with a mix of celery, carrots, and a cherry tomato
  • Blue sauce cup with ranch for dipping.
  • All natural vanilla yogurt with sprinkles
  • Raspberries with white chocolate chips carefully placed in the holes. I used some music note food picks to tie into the rock theme! ♥
  • And of course we can’t forget the Lunch Box Love for the first day of school!

My 2nd grade princess had pretty much the same lunch as her older sister. There were just  few differences.


Karsyn’s PlanetBox Launch had…

  • Carrot and celery sticks
  • All natural vanilla yogurt with sprinkles in the PlanetBox  tall dipper
  • Halved banana with peal on
  • Round Peanut Butter sandwich with “2nd” cut outs and “grade” food picks. She also got some Pop Rocks because, hey! Second grade rocks too! ♥
  • Cut string cheese with a school bus cupcake ring
  • ranch for veggie dipping in the yellow sauce cup
  • Homemade apple cheese crackers in an apple silicone cup
  • And a very special lunchbox love note for my very special free spirited girl! ♥♥

Some things (or similar) I used to make these lunches…


  1. Loving the lunches! I can't believe they are in 5th and 2nd grade! My baby is starting Kindergarten on Monday, I'm sad to see her go back to school, but am happy she'll be getting to learn all kinds of new things. I am grateful that because of her birthday she was able to stay little for a year longer! Hope they had a great day! Looking forward to seeing more of your lunches.

  2. These are fantastic. Love the 'rocks' part!
