The latest parent we've discovered making lunch immensely cooler for her kid is going the brown bag route.
Name: Operation "My Son's Lunchbag Drawings"
Artist: Art teacher and mom Jane Olivier Lea
Bag Art Recipient: Jane's 14-year-old son Jack
When It All Began: On the first day of 6th grade, Jane decided to doodle on Jack's lunch bag. He kept asking for more and a year later, he and his friends are still entertained by the hilarious doodles. "I love his feedback," Jane says.
Artist's General Rule Of Thumb: "I use only black Sharpies and if I cant scribble it onto a bag in two or three minutes, it's not going on a bag."
