Cute Lunch Box Notes for Kids – Printable Love Notes

If you’ve been packing a lunch for your child for any amount of time, you know that the job can become tedious and boring.  Your child has probably decided what specific things they will eat each day and often it becomes a very limited menu.  Making kids’ lunches exciting takes some creativity but you can do this by adding little notes with inspirational messages into your child’s lunch box or lunch bag every day or on random days to surprise them.  Lunch notes for kindergarteners can be especially exciting as this may be the first time their are carrying their own lunch to school.

As a teacher, I’ve seen many lunch box notes in my classroom.  Usually, the child who opens their lunch and finds a note is really excited about this and shares the note with their friends as well.  This provides an opportunity in the middle of the school day for the child, and their friends, to feel the love and positive messages that were sent in their lunch.
