I am never going to be the mom who makes that impressive bento lunch for my kids, featuring a Chewbacca made out of sesame noodles. But I am in fact that mom who stashes a bunch of free printable lunchbox notes in the drawer under the kitchen counter, and when I remember to tuck one in, I know it always makes them smile. Not because I’m the kind of mom who does this thing all the time, but probably because I’m the mom who doesn’t.
In other words, if I can do it…why not give it a shot? To get you started, I’ve tracked down 16 seriously cute free printables meant to be tucked into those cool lunch boxes and bags we’ve been featuring this season.
Whether your kids like Minecraft, Star Wars, science, dinosaurs, butterflies, corny jokes, or just a smiley face or a thoughtful scribble from you, hopefully there’s something here that’s perfect for your own kids. All thanks to some very generous and talented designers around the web.
Speaking of which, lots of them have their own design studios and Etsy shops. While you’re on their sites, poke around and see if there might be some other cool way to support them in return.
