So Let's Try PACKING!
Grilled Cheese Rainbow Box: grilled cheese, tomatoes, carrots, almonds, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, and a frozen Dark Chocolate Raspberry Dream Pop!
Deconstructed Sushi Box: seaweed, rice balls (made with this fun thing from amazon), edamame, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes (but would've put pickled ginger if I'd remembered to get some ginger), strawberries, and frozen mango!

Tools + Gadgets to make packing even more fun:
Rice Ball Shaker - arguably unnecessary, but for $5, why not?
Sandwich Sealer - I actually just use a circle cookie cutter that I already had, but these seem cute + effective!
Popsicle Sleeves - not just for popsicles! think Dream Pops, chia pudding, applesauce, yogurt, pudding, I'm sure you could even put Jell-O if you wanted!
Crinkle Cutter - not just for potatoes! try cutting fruits and veggies with this fun cutter + see how much more fun they are to eat!
Dehydrator - love this gadget! fruit jerky is our fave!! especially pineapple jerky! we used to buy Solely Organic Pineapple Fruit Jerky from Whole Foods for nearly $2 a jerky + they're so tasty, it's hard to eat just 1! now I just buy fresh whole pineapples for less than $2, cut them up + pop them in for 12 hours to enjoy all the jerky we want!
Spiralizer - another great gadget we love! our Summer Saints had so much fun learning how to use this guy! fun for the whole family to use + makes eating veggies fun too!!
