Got Milk? Or, I should say, “Got a milk carton free crochet pattern?” Sorry, that was a stretch. But I do think this is a pretty adorable little crochet milk carton that will be a great addition to your kids toy food collection. The finished toy is about the size of the little milk cartons they give out at school.
Oh my gosh, flashback to “hot lunch”… I was ALWAYS jealous of the kids that got to buy hot lunch every day. My sister and I always had to make our lunch for school and once in a while, as a special treat, we were sent to school with some lunch money to buy lunch. Now, looking back, I’m like, “REALLY?” Why would I have been so excited about processed/fake fish sticks and stale tater tots? Gross. I have NO IDEA why I was so jealous of the kids that got to eat those delicious pretend-food meals everyday. So, I guess it’s time for me to say it:
Thank you, mom.
My kids aren’t school-aged yet, so I don’t know if hot lunch has improved, but there has been A LOT of progress towards the recognition of teaching our kids healthy eating habits, so I sure hope so!
