While I don't have any kiddos going to school this year, I have been in a back-to-school mode for some reason. Maybe it's because I have a lot of friends who are teachers or that most of my friends have a kid that is at least going to pre-school.
Anyway, one thing my mom did occasionally and something that I want to do for my kids when we get to this stage, is put notes in the lunch box. Because she didn't do it every day, it was a nice surprise and such an encouragement to see! I don't remember what Mom wrote the notes on, but I know it wasn't anything fancy. But with the help of Pinterest.com (follow me on Pinterest here)and the internet, I found a ton of free printable lunch box note pages.
Some of these are also suitable for sending in a lunch packed for your spouse as well :)
Ok, so this last one isn't a printable note, but you can also use a toothpick and "write" on a banana. The note will show up about 1 hour later. How cool!
