Now that my daughter is in school, I get so excited to do special things like these lunch box notes. My childhood was not your norm and I think it was due to cultural reasons. I didn’t get notes like this from my Mom, and that’s OK. It didn’t make her a bad mom nor make me love her any less! She was and is still a great Mom. I, however get a little “high” from doing stuff like this for my little lady.
I made two sheets that you can print, both with 10 little notes to print, cut out, and slip into your child’s lunch box when you are packing it. Honestly it takes seconds to do. Get crafty and add a colorful boarder or a ribbon and embellish them with stickers or rhinestones and you have a 15 minute craft for special days like test days, performance days, or any day!
There are 20 all together to last a full month.
The first sheet is ten kid friendly Jokes of the Day. It was so much fun trying to recall all of these and ask my friends if they had any. Here are the 10 I used for these printables:
What did the pen say to the pencil? So, what’s your point?
Why can’t you give Elsa a balloon? Because she will let it go!
What do librarians take with them when they go fishing? Bookworms
What object is king of the classroom? The ruler!
Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Cows say. Cows say who? No silly, cows say moo!
Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9!
Why do cows wear bells? Because their horns don’t work!
Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Little Old Lady. Little Old Lady who? I didn’t know you could yodel!
What do you call a fake noodle? An Impasta
What did Bacon say to Tomato? Lettuce get together!
I also included some other sweet notes and words of encouragement. These say:
I love you! Have a great day today!
You make me smile.
Love you so much!
I’m proud of you! Have a great day!
Make someone smile today!
Make someone laugh today!
I hope like and use them! I know I will!
