Last year when Jack started taking lunches to school I put a note in his lunch box. I planned to do it the first couple days of school, but then it turned into a couple weeks and then the whole school year. Even on days that he buys lunch I put the note on his snack. As we were getting close to school this year he asked if I was going to leave him notes again. I asked if he wanted me to and he said yes. So of course I would, how could I say no.
For last year’s notes I used some fun stickers on post-it notes. It was simple and easy but cute. At the end of the school year Jack’s teacher sent me a link to some lunch notes that you print and then sign. Why didn’t I think of that? So this year I am going to make up some in Publisher, using cute clip art and praises. This way I can customize them for holidays or other things he likes.
Here is a sample of the first set I made. Feel free to print and put in your children’s lunches.
