Every little monkey could use something cute to take his or her lunch to school in!

My son, Charlie, recently started pre-school, and four days a week he brings his breakfast to school with him. Being new to the pre-school scene, on his first day, I just packed his food in his backpack and sent him on his way. The first thing he told me after coming home from school that day was that he needed a lunch box.

Ooops. Mommy school fail number one.

That’s how this cute Monkey Lunch Box was inspired! Even if your kiddos aren’t quite school aged yet, or if they don’t take a lunch to school, though, this box is just as much fun for storing toys, hauling special things around, or just playing with. After all, any parent knows how much kids love to put things in and out of boxes!

This free crochet pattern is part of the Holiday Stash Down Crochet-A-Long. Each week a different designer has been releasing a free pattern that’s easy to make out of stash yarn and that’s wonderful for a Christmas gift.
