Back to School Lunch Box Notes

How school started for you guys yet? We are 3 weeks into school already and I miss summer so much! I mean, as much as I love structure and less chaos at home during the day, I also love the freedom that summer brings- to sleep in, to run errands on my own time, to do and be whatever, WHENEVER! And, let’s be honest, homework each night is the WORST! I hate it. (Almost as much as I hate laundry.)

But then there are things I love about my kids being in school. And things I get excited about. Like these free printable lunch box notes. I just love how easy these are to let my kids know how special they really are to me. The world is bombarding them with false ideas of perfection and negativity, and we need to be making sure our voice drowns out theirs. 🙂

  1. First, download and print off these adorable lunch notes.
  2. Cut them all out, and place the ones you won’t be using immediately into an envelope or bag so they’ll be ready to go the next time you need one.
  3. Fill out one of the unique cards, and then place it in your child’s lunch or backpack!

So easy, and so meaningful to those kids! I mean, what child doesn’t love getting lunch box notes from mom in their lunch or backpack? My 10-year old saves each one I write, so I know it means a lot to him.

I know these lunch box notes will take a few extra minutes out of my already hectic mornings, but if I can make him smile even for a second during the day while he is away from me, and give him some encouragement and love… well then that is worth all the time in the world!

  1. These are adorable! Thank you for sharing. I am looking forward to school starting and for this summer heat to go away!

  2. What a wonderful printable to get us all thinking about the start of the school year. I am working on a collection of lunch box jokes. My son came to rely on them last year and even his friends noticed when I mistakenly forgot one day. This year I plan to be prepared and have a month of jokes ready ahead of time. It makes the mornings that much easier knowing I don’t have to search online for a daily joke. Thanks a lot!

    1. That is SUCH a cute idea! I think my 9-year old would LOVE that! Thanks for sharing!
