More than half the summer is gone, and it’s time to start thinking about back to school. There’s nothing wrong with a sandwich and chips in a brown paper bag, but if you’re the type of mom who wants to send the kids off with something special, we’ve got the cutest bento box lunches you ever did see. (We also think these Japanese-inspired lunches would be great at kids’ parties.)
