Back to School Bento Blog Hop & Giveaway

It's almost back to school time and this means back to packing lunches for most families!  It's also a great time to think about bento lunches to make things easier.

If you've never packed bento lunches before, it's a great way to start making fun, healthy, waste-free lunches for your kids.  They can be as simple or as complex as you want them to be, and there are so many tools and containers to help you on your journey.  Check out this list for our picks for beginning bento.

Now once you have the containers, what are you going to put in them?  So glad you asked!  While the blog is full of great ideas, if I do say so myself, these two series of pack ahead lunches will get you started and finished in one night!

Do you already pack lunch and are just looking for some new ideas how to make it more fun?  This Rock the Lunchbox lunch makeover post can give you a few ideas how to make lunch cuter in just a few minutes, using a few simple tools and tricks.

Are you getting excited yet?  You should be, since the best part is yet to come!  With some other amazing bento bloggers, I'm helping to host a massive back-to-school lunch packing giveaway and blog hop.  You could win a $70 gift card for All Things for Sale or some other great prizes, depending on your worldwide location (there are options for US residents and other countries too).

How can you enter?  It's pretty easy.  You'll travel through the blog hop and collect a letter piece from each blog.  When you land back here on What's for Lunch at Our House, you're finished collecting!  Put the letter tiles in order (they're numbered for you) to spell out the codeword.  Then, use the Rafflecopter below to enter the drawing. The first entry is the codeword and the second is what country you're in (to determine the runner up prizes). After that, bonus entries are available from each of the participating blogs.

To make it extra easy for you, here's piece number 14 to the puzzle, don't forget to write it down!

Now, click on the button below to visit my friend Jessie at Chaos & Confections for another piece of the puzzle.  When you make it back here, the Rafflecopter is at the bottom of this post. :)  Good luck!
