a boxed breakfast is my fave

you are my fave: boxed breakfast

I put this boxed breakfast together as a simple way to treat the adults who are corralling the Easter egg hunt participants this weekend and who surely didn’t have time for breakfast since they were too busy fussing with the bow ties and saddle shoes.

you are my fave: boxed breakfast

To make your own you’ll need:
– a small, sturdy box
– acrylic paints (I honestly don’t think you can beat the colors from the Martha Stewart line)
– stencil (I used a Martha Stewart Crafts adhesive stencil since freehand painting is not my forte)
– paint brush
weck jars
– glassine bag
– breakfast food items (bagel, orange juice, granola, yogurt, fruit)

Step one: paint the outside of the box in pattern of your choosing and let dry. You can also make an easy juice label by stamping a circle onto a piece of paper to create an orange. Very little art skill required.

Step two: Prepare food items. Package bagel in glassine bag and seal with tape or a label. Tape juice label onto bottle. Layer yogurt and granola in one weck jar and berries in the other. Fit nicely into box.

Step three: Hand out and enjoy while watching the kids stuff their cheeks full of jelly beans.

    I used to have to go to the Ferry Building in SF to find Weck jars, but now they seem to be sold everywhere. Such a great way to dress up simple items.

    I love using them when I make lemon curd.

    […] busiest times of the day. (And alas, one of the easiest things to forget to do for ourselves.) A pretty + nutritious boxed breakfast could be a welcomed relief for a busy friend or teacher (or happy birthday surprise!). Great idea, […]
