Thank you, Snyder’s-Lance Snack Packs for sponsoring this post.
I remember Kaylee (who is now in the 4th grade) coming home after her first day of kindergarten holding the note that I had tucked inside her lunch. I kept it simple: “I (heart) Kaylee. (heart) Mom.” She had a huge smile on her face and said, “I loved it so much!”.
Now that printables are available everywhere it’s nice to keep some on hand. Instead of printing them out every night I’ll take some time during an afternoon and print out a ton of them, cut them to size, and keep them in my silverware drawer. I don’t always use pre-made notes, but it is especially fun to use these cute seasonal ones for the holidays. Ruby likes going through the drawer and choosing which ones she wants in her lunch. Um, that kind of defeats the purpose since it’s supposed to be a surprise! She cracks me up.
The highlight of every lunch are the single serving sized bags of chips and pretzels. Even more than the cookie! If they run out of time at school and can’t finish their lunch, the cookie is what they save for the later. They always find time for their chips.
And to keep things simple for you, I’ve created a collection of printable lunch box notes and jokes that I’ve used for my own kids for every season! There are some for every month of the school year!
