Ellis Square Friends
We go through 120-150 lunch bags a week!!! Our diners love our decorated lunch bags. We are making this schedule so we can have a steady flow of lunch bags for our lunches. We use a 12 3/8in X 6 1/8in 4in lunch bag, it can be larger but it can not be smaller. Every major chain has their own name for these. They range between GIANT LUNCH BAGS, MEGA LUNCH BAGS, EXTRA LARGE LUNCH BAGS OR GIANT LUNCH BAGS. I'm sure there are more names out there for this particular size. I suggest going by the deminsions provided above, they can be larger but they cannot be smaller.
These lunch bags can be decorated in the medium your child chooses and whichever way your child chooses. We have given you a guide in the memo area of your slot but please do not squash their creativity. If a child wants to color Christmas scenes in July we will take them. They can use markers, crayons, paint, colored pencils. They can make collages from magazines or they can use stickers or stamps. Anything goes... We had one sweet mama who made flowers out of handprints!!! Use this as a teachable moment for your kids. When I say kids, I mean kids of all ages. We received bags decorated in a nursing home and a beautiful note from the art director who said the elderly were so happy to decorate these bags for us. Any thing goes folks, anything goes.
I have also included a few slots where kids can make cards for us, these cards can say anything inspiring on them or they can simply say the blurb we have suggested. If your children would like to sign their first name on them, that too is acceptable.
Lastly, please share this link with all the teachers you know. It's a wonderful school project. Once completed these bags can be dropped off on any Thursday at The United Methodist Church, 2 Dane Street, Beverly MA any Thursday from 3:30-7:00pm. If this time does not work for you, please send us an email and we can arrange for a different day to drop off the bags. We are not at the Church every day so an email to coordinate would be best. Oh... And one last thing, the date you signed for is the date we will use them so we need them the Thursday before your date. Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
