Artist father designs awesome lunch bags to help son make friends
We’ve got a very early contender for father of the year.
Imgur user DomZombie shared an incredible post showing readers the custom lunch bags he creates for his son every day to help him break out of his shell in elementary school.
“For the past 3 years or so, I’ve been drawing on my son’s lunch bags when he took lunches to elementary school,” the artist shared in his post. “Even though he has friends, he’s pretty shy, so I started doing these to help break the ice and get conversations going.”
Though he wrote that he doesn’t take more than one hour on each bag, the creative father’s son tries to save each piece. “We may lose one to the occasional soggy sandwich or leaky drink, but that’s to be expected,” he joked.
“Any pop culture references from movies or TV that we saw will usually go directly to a lunch bag,” the father explained, “We like the DC shows like Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Star Wars was big … with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One.”
“Occasionally, I’ll do original characters or I’ll illustrate private jokes between him and me,” he wrote. “But mostly, kids like established characters because then he can talk about it with his friends.”
“He’s broken out of his shell because of this, and I like to think that I had a hand in helping him do this with these bags,” the artist revealed.
These excellent bags are definitely conversation starters. Dad win.
