Yay and hooray, y'all! It's my annual lunch box post...with fun, free (taco-themed) lunch box note printables. Taco 'bout a fun time! And of course, the lunch box idea I'm sharing this year surrounds all things taco, too...made with fresh and delicious foods!

Lunch Box Idea
This lunch box idea is actually geared for the older kiddos, which is the category we fall into these days. My boys still love bringing their lunches to school (even my middle schooler), so as they get older, I've gotten a bit more creative. This little taco lunch box is one of their favorites, yet. Check out all of its details (and grab the free printable lunch box notes) below.

Taco Lunch Notes
Definitely theming it up a bit with this one. And you can totally send tacos in a lunch box on days other than Tuesday. But my youngest is definitely the Taco Tuesday purist and likes to keep it on the designated day. Instead of my usual lunch box notes, these also have the fun Taco Tuesday/fiesta spin on them. There are eight designs in this edition. Grab them at the end of the post.

Taco-Themed Lunch Box Idea

Taco Lunch Box Idea
Our taco-themed lunch box was very easy to put together. The best part? It works great using leftovers. 
  • I sautéed up some leftover chicken breasts with chopped red peppers and taco seasoning.
  • Then I added black beans, tortillas, and all of the usual taco toppings. 
One of my kids makes legitimate tacos when I prepare this for his lunch box. The other kind of makes his own deconstructed taco situation...eating it all piece by piece. To each his own, right?

Lunch Bots
I always get asked about this stainless lunch box when I post photos of it (pictured above). IT'S LEGIT. We've now had a set for over ten years and I still use them. They're called Lunch Bots and I can't find anything comparable.
