One thing I have never done consistently is include cute lunch box notes for my kids. I know many of you already do this, and others might think "Ain't No One Got Time for That". I always have good intentions, but usually drop the ball on things like this.
Last year my daughter had a really rough start to the school year for various reasons. I think having a little note from mom each day will really help her with confidence to overcome whatever struggles she might have that day.
I've seen lots of printable lunch notes to stick in your kids' lunches, and they're adorable. But, if you want a more eco-friendly option (not to mention saving on the cost of paper and ink to print them out), I hope you'll use mine!
Simply right click to save them to your computer. Then you can print them out, laminate them, and use a dry erase or overhead marker to write your notes on them each day. If you don't have a laminator, you can either get it done at an office store or use self-laminating pouches from the store.
(Making these is addicting! I could've made designs all day long! If these aren't your style, it would be pretty easy to make your own-- you could use Publisher or even an online photo editor like PicMonkey.)
Affiliate alert! My kids use Easy Lunchboxes for lunches, so it comes home every day. The note won't get thrown out because they don't use wrappers or plastic baggies. If you're concerned it might, try using these in your child's backpack or homework folder instead.
I hope you have fun spreading a little love to your kids this school year!
