Start a new tradition around your home with lunchbox notes. Just drop little love and encouraging sentiments into your little ones’ lunch box on a daily basis. I even made a free printable sheet to make this easy for you. Print some extra love this back to school season and add it to any lunch box.

How to Use These Notes for a Lunchbox
Once you have your download, you can start printing and adding some encouraging words to your kids’ lunch. These are perfect for kids attending traditional school and even those learning from home.
- Download and print the lunchbox notes on to regular copy paper.
- Cut each of the notes with a pair of scissors. You can also use Cricut print then cut to make this a bit easier.
- Then you can just drop these in their lunchbox or set them beside their plate for lunch at home. I also like using double stick tape to adhere these to things like fruit cups and apple sauce pouches. Then every time they reach for one they will be left with some encouragement.
Positive reinforcement is a great way to encourage your children and let them know that you care. These are an easy way to do that every single day. You could even skip the lunch box and stick these in their notebooks or even their textbooks. Surprise them with a note from mom everywhere they look!
