Lunch Box Notes

With the new school year quickly approaching, I had been thinking about the kind of lunch box notes I could put in my children’s lunches this year.

Last year, I sent my girls with jokes (you can find that free printable here) and they loved it. This year, I created lunch box notes with sweet messages and fun play on words.

These lunch notes are a great way to connect with your kids and let them know you are thinking of them when you are not with them.

This post is all about lunch box notes.

A note in your child’s lunch is a simple gesture that goes beyond the message on the paper. It gives your child a surprise message during their school day and lets them know you are thinking about them. Ultimately this can strengthen the connection you have with your child.

As our children grow up they may not remember what the lunch box notes from mom said but will remember the meaningful gesture and efforts we went through! This may lead them to pass the tradition down and send lunch notes with their children one day.

  • Printer Paper
  • Scissors
  • Card Protector (optional)


First, download and print off the lunch box notes at the bottom of this post. Then, cut out each individual lunch note.

Next, store them all in an envelope or baggie until you need them. I prefer to cut them all out before school starts that way they are ready for me in the morning because our mornings are pretty chaotic and this leaves me one less thing to do.

Once you’ve packed your child’s lunch, make sure to pack one of these cute lunch notes in with it.

*If you use ice packs in your child’s lunchbox, a badge holder like this can be helpful to keep the lunch box note from getting wet.
