Fun facts & Crafts With Anna Lineback

Movie Edition — Part 2!

This week I’ve prepared a movie night snack craft. You can’t watch a movie without snacks, so this one is really fun to try out. This craft could take from 5 minutes to 30 depending on how much time you want to spend on it, make it your own! This might be one of my favorite editions yet, so I hope you enjoy it also!

Three Lunches and a Meme


WELCOME TO SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS! MY NAME IS ANNA STUDER, AND I AM A FOOD CRITIC. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF MY LUNCH SINCE THE THIRD MONDAY OF SCHOOL. I don’t want to make the lunch ladies look bad, because they have to make lunch for 600 students a day, and the government won't let them make things that they could last year, so imagine how difficult it must be. THEY WORK SO HARD, AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. With the new restaurant format, I will always do three reviews, but one restaurant, and two lunch ones every other week including this one. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!

I hope you thought my reviews were somewhat accurate! Thanks for checking out the lunch(and also restaurant) ratings by me, Anna Studer, Food Reviewer. See you next week!
