Easy DIY Recipe for Kids: Honey Bear Lunchbox

Can you believe that summer is over and kids are back to school?! A just wrapped up his first week in his young fives (Pre-K) class. And today, I’m back to work at my day job after my maternity leave with B! It’s been a bittersweet return as we say goodbye to summer; literally the fastest summer of my life. But, for the most part, we’re all enjoying the structure of the school year and my work schedule.

Last week, National Honey Board sent us a fun Party Pack curated by entertaining expert Camille Styles. It was the perfect way for us to celebrate A’s return to Pre-K. While it’s not a huge milestone like Kindergarten, he’s made adjustments to a new classroom, teacher, and new friends. And honestly, it feels like we’re just a short time away from him being a big kid in full-time school. Needless to say, the boys and I loved taking the time to celebrate A’s last ‘first’ week of Pre-K!

We had so much fun making an easy, DIY for kids, a Honey Bear Lunchbox! Even at 4.5 and 2 years old, the older boys are all about independence. They love taking on new tasks and learning to do things for themselves. This easy Honey Bear Lunchbox was the perfect fit for our first week of school celebration. The boys loved being able to make their own lunch with a little help from me. Most of all, we had fun talking about the exciting things to come during this upcoming school year.

Seriously, these two in their mini chef outfits are so adorable! I’m so happy they had such a great time making their meals. I’m all about getting the boys to help out in the kitchen. So I hope that their excitement for being my best helpers will last well into their teen years (fingers crossed!)

  1. My daughter loves PB & honey sandwiches, but I’d never thought to add apples to it too! I’ll definitely have to try this!

    AHHHDORABLE. I love this snack. it reminds me of deployments because I would literally live on apples dipped in peanut butter drizzled with honey. i didn’t think to put it on bread though, that sounds super convenient and delicious!
