I always envisioned being That Mom who sends my kids off to school with cute little lunch box notes each day scribbled with heartfelt words of encouragement and love.
Alas, I am the mom who is usually scrambling just to remember to pack a spoon to go with the yogurt. But recently, I started keeping a set of printable lunchbox notes in a drawer in the kitchen (wisely next to the spoons), and every so often, for no reason at all, I pop one in to surprise the kids. They love it, and it takes no time at all.
Now, thanks to Lonela of Tiny Me, who recently shared fun free printable Valentines cards with us, now I have another option. Her free printable lunch notes are beyond cute. I love that you can give them to a preschooler, but even my fourth grader would like the designs. Plus, it’s cool that so many of my daughters’ favorite things are represented: robots, cute animals, hearts, rocket ships.
I am grateful to Lonela for always offering up so many beautiful designs free for the enjoyment of so many kids. And I am equally grateful that I can give my kids a sweet little mid-day surprise without spending six hours filling a bento box with nutritious food carefully crafted into the likeness of Big Hero 6 characters.
