An item on our 50 Summer Activities list this summer was to make a bento lunch for their sister and deliver it to her at work. My 17 year old niece has a summer job as a field scout. She walks fields checking for weeds, bugs, and population (how many plants are growing in the field). Then she gives the report to the farmer who is managing that field. This lunch features Shepherd’s Purse a weed that happens to be pretty and a fun name. I included a birds nest because my niece found a nest in a field one day. My 11 year old nephew and I made lunches for each of us, drove them to the field where she was working, ate lunch together, then walked a field together. It was fun and educational.
Special Note: This is my 700th post! Creating content for this blog has become such a special part of my life.
