Free Lunch box note printables, creating fun memories for the kids

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

As you all know I enjoy creating special treats for my kids lunchboxes, but another something special is when I pop in a little note.  I may do it just for one child and someday’s I do it for all 3, something to help boost their day.  Also another creative idea is writing a little message on their banana.

Below is a collection of free lunchbox note printables I have found around the web by some very creative bloggers.

I love this idea 🙂 Totally doing it for my big kids this year. My 10 yo son may not appreciate the ‘I love you’ messages, but he’d love a joke in his lunchbox each day!

Another idea is to get the edible markers that you can buy for cake decorating and you can writ on virtually anything. I cant wait til my little one can read!

Mandy Thomas on Facebook January 19, 2012 - 3:18 PM

my son loves to get get notes in his lunch, when he couldn’t read i used to do pictures.

Lynn January 19, 2012 - 3:34 PM

I’ve been using the cardboard dividers out of my Dilmah Tea packets for years to quickly write and sneak inside the lunchboxes of my kids. It became a game to see if I could get them in there without them finding it before school.

Megan January 19, 2012 - 5:41 PM

I love these! Thank-you for gathering them all in one place, saves hours of trawling the internet!

These are terrific! I try to give my girls a note with a joke on it every morning when I drop them off at school – they love it! Any links to good sites with lots of k=jokes would be very welcome – a joke a day is hard work!

So clever. My husband is starting a new job in two weeks and for the first time in his working life he will get proper lunch breaks so I’m going to be packing him a lunch and thought I might add in a sweet note 😛
