lunch box notes

who doesn’t love getting a love note?  i know i sure do.  and my boys do too.

last year i was really good about sending a little lunch box note with my son every day for preschool.  this year not so much.

{insert mom guilt}

so i made these up a few weeks ago and thought i’d share them with you.

lunch notes

you can print them on regular paper but they’re even better if you print on card stock.  click, print, cut and send a special lunch box note away with your kids as an extra surprise.

i was packing my son oliver’s lunch this morning and he said, “don’t forget to send my little note!”  not put a cookie or special treat in there, but don’t forget his note.


i think you’ll be surprised to hear how much they love it.

click here to print.

{and please, go ahead and share it with your friends on facebook & pinterest too!}

we’re all about spreading the love.

    Love this. I can’t wait to do this for Grady & AJ (although I know it will be sooner than I am ready for!) 🙂
    Although I am not in the lunch packing phase yet, homemade packed lunches always remind me of the lunches that my mom packed for us. They were always quite healthy. Containing “boring things” like fruit, veggies, pretzels, etc. instead of the oh so common chips, fruit roll ups, gummy snacks, ho-ho’s, etc. I always wished that my mom would pack the more exciting “junk foods” like I found in my friends lunches, but now that I’m a mommy I am so thankful for that gift that she gave us. 🙂 (Although we did get the occasional treat…we were not totally deprived of yummy “junk”) The older I get the more I appreciate the things my parents did for us (that I know didn’t get adequate thanks at the time). Hmm…maybe something I should remember myself in those hard parenting moments?? 🙂 lol Hope you are having a blessed Monday Tammy!! Thanks again for your wonderful posts! 🙂

    Love these! My girls are both graduated college, but I love to put a little note in my husbands lunch bag every once in awhile. I know, I’m a bit of a dork!! But he always tells me it put a week smile on his face!!

    My parents divorced when I was five; and when I would go out of town on vacation with my dad, my mom sent me cards in my suitcase. There was one for each day- I thought this was awesome!

      that is awesome hollis! it’s the simple, everyday things that communicate our love for those we care about so deeply. i’m so happy you have that tender, precious memory of your childhood and your mom. love.
