Free Printable Lunchbox Notes

Making Lunches for the kids to take to school isn’t my favorite part of being a mom. It is tiring putting together a lunch and hoping they’ll actually eat it while at school! But even if they don’t love what I pack them to eat, my kids do love getting little notes in their lunch. Lunchbox notes let them know that they’re special, and that I’m thinking of them! I created this sheet of printable lunchbox notes. You can print them, color them, and put them in your kiddo’s lunchbox. If you’re not into coloring them yourself, you can add a marker or some colored pencils to your child’s lunchbox so they get a meal and a craft at lunchtime!

This craft was part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long I’m sharing fast crafts for back to school, along with my friends Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Kara from Happy Go Lucky, and several of our crafty friends. Check out all their fun and fast craft ideas down below!
