Creative Parents Are Packing Adorable Disney-Themed Lunches

These lunches are magical.

The back-to-school season can be rough—for kids and their parents. Kids miss swimming in the pool and playdates with their friends and parents dread having to pack a lunch everyday and feel like they’ve run a marathon by the time they get their kids to school. During this transition, it’s nice to have things that make the switch easier, and some creative Disney-loving parents have found a way to inject some magic into their kids’ lunch boxes.

Using a combination of decor, toys, cutouts, and other handy gadgets, parents are making lunches based on “Alice in Wonderland,” “Cars,” “Toy Story,” and more, and sharing their photos on Instagram and Pinterest. To make these lunches, parents are using bento boxes, which make it easy for them to include different sections that correspond to the theme, while providing their kiddo with a variety of foods in their lunch.
