Inspiring FUN Lunches

I admit it!  In spite of all of the amazing resources out there to inspire some fun and creative lunch boxes, I fall into the rut of the same thing... every day.  Why does it take so long to make lunches for three kids (and my poor husband when I feel like adding one more)?  So I need some inspiration here.  Based on some of the ideas I have seen online, I know that there are some simple ways to make the lunch box something your kids are excited to open up each day.  A little love from mommy in the middle of their school day, right?

So this collection of Lunch Box ideas is for me, but I know there are many of you who will appreciate the inspiration as well!
