Easy and creative kids' lunch box ideas for Valentine’s Day. Make Valentine’s day special for the little people in your life by packing them one of these bento boxes.
I know making kids’ lunch boxes is a chore and most days you just want to throw something together and hope that you got it kind of balanced out. Some other days it is school lunches, like in our house.
That said, I do love making my 9 year old’s lunch box. I used to stress out a lot when I started packing lunch boxes for him as he started Kindergarten. But over time, I have come up with many tips and tricks to make it a not so stressful affair.
You will love these ideas for Valentine’s day bento boxes as they are
- So cute and will be such a surprise for your kiddo.
- The creative aspect is already taken care of and you just have to follow it to the cue.

Yes, granted that you may need to make some small investments to make these fun lunch boxes. But once that is done and you have your accessories ready, then you can go crazy with them.
Even though I may have gone a little overboard here, you don't even need as many of these accessories to make a special lunch box. A few heart shaped things, a sprinkle of some red and pink and you are good to go for the most part. If you want to get a little more creative every once in a while, I am here to help.
