Wrap Lunchbox

I love this recipe because it allows the kids to have the freedom to create what they like but it’s also good for them. They’ll be so excited about creating a lunch with the ingredients that they’ll forget that there are even green beans in there. I also like to get creative with how I package the lunches. Tennis ball sleeves make the perfect lunchbox for a wrap, and sometimes I’ll even pack a lunch in a paint can, which serves two purposes: keeps the lunch from getting ruined and gives the kids an opportunity to decorate their lunchbox.
