Equipping children who go back to school with interesting school supplies will certainly increase the children's enthusiasm to go to school, at least that's how I used to feel when I returned to school with fancy stationery. However, equipping children with mindful activities will increase the child's confidence and calm in dealing with their daily activities with school, friends, and their parents.

Love this whole project as I am constantly traveling with my food but never want to carry even the smallest of ice chest cause all that ice melts and soaks my food. So using an insulated lunch bag is great for workers on the road like myself. I will have to see if my local craft stores sell insulation and then get my wife to drink all her coffee so I can get a bag.

Quoting Lady:
Nice tutorial!
Where do you get the insulation btw? Is there any specific food-grade variant necessary or any thermal insulation from let's say home depo material would suffice?

Hi Lady, I got the insulation from a local sewing store. The food is not directly contacted with the bag, you can put the food in a food storage first, then put it in the bag. That will keep the food safe.
