About Printable Lunch Notes
As parents we have a profound impact on our children’s perceptions of themselves and the world around them. What we say and do influences their attitudes and behaviors.
Since we can’t follow them around all day, hiding cheerful printable lunch notes in their lunch boxes or backpacks is one way to send them happy thoughts when they are away from us.
This can be as easy as writing a message on a napkin or on a sticky note that you stick to the inside of their lunch box. I’ve also written messages on index cards and stuck them inside the book my child is reading somewhere past the page where their bookmark is.
Every once in awhile, I like to add a little pizzazz to my surprise notes. Sometimes that involves adding a sticker or attaching a piece of candy. Sometimes it’s as simple as printing a fun note with a cute design.
Today I’m sharing these cute critter printable lunch notes so you can surprise your child with these cheerful greetings too!
