Our elementary Kindergarten has a cute tradition of doing "color days" for the first week + of school. Each day they focus on one color and the kids are encouraged to dress in that color and they do little projects, read books, etc. based on the color of the day.
While I wasn't certain that the Kindergarten was still doing this (it's been five years since Ethan was in Kindergarten, and three years for Owen), I hoped Color Days would be happening for Paige too. And it is! Yay! Besides wearing the cutest red dress and red sandals to school, I tried to pack her a reddish lunch also.
In our PlanetBox lunchbox she has:
- hummus on multigrain bread sandwich, cut with a heart-shaped sandwich cutter
- strawberries with a red crayon pick (I ordered those from Amazon ages ago with Color Days in mind!)
- a bit of red mini M&M's
- a wrapped string cheese that has a coordinating crayon picture printed on the wrapper.
Simple, but gets the red theme across, I think. Paige was excited and said she couldn't wait to eat it. Success!
