The next holiday is quickly approaching, which means it’s time for a new set of lunch box notes. These lunch box notes have become something the kids have started looking for each day. They now expect them as we move onto another holiday and call me out when I don’t have them in there.
I’m thinking this is the last holiday set I’ll have to create this year. And next year, they should be good to go for each holiday. I’ve mentioned in past posts that I print these at the beginning of the month before the holiday (I’m a little late getting this post up.) I print 2 pages on card stock paper. Then, I cut them all out and keep them in a kitchen drawer in a little container. There is also a pen or a marker in the drawer along with napkins. When I pack their lunch at night, I just go to the drawer, pull out the napkin and note for the next day. It goes right on top of their lunches. It takes seconds on my end and the kids love seeing them in there. Totally worth it.
I was super excited to find the Rae Dunn napkins this year at Homegoods. Not only will I use them for our Easter egg hunt this weekend, but they’ve been in all the lunches for the last few weeks.
If you think your littles would enjoy these notes in their lunch box, you can download them here.
