Back to school is here, so it’s time to start packing lunches again. My mom put a note in my lunch every day in elementary school, and if she missed it one day, I’d always ask her where it was!?
Adding a lunch box note is such a small act, but I can tell you it made a big difference in my day.
So when my kids started school, I knew I’d keep this tradition up. But I’ll be honest, some days my brain just can’t think of something “new” or encouraging to write.
That’s why I created these free faith-based lunch box notes! On the days when I don’t have time or energy to write a handwritten note, I can grab one of these out of our junk drawer and stick it in their lunchboxes.
And if you homeschool, you can still write your kid’s notes! Print one out and put it on their pillow before bed, or stick one on their bathroom mirror. I’m sure it will bring a smile to their face!
A Note to Moms
First, let me say do not put more pressure on yourself to do all the perfect things for your kids. It is OKAY if you miss a note one day or if you don’t make this a tradition for your family at all.
Too often, I’ve scrolled Instagram or Pinterest and started worrying about things I don’t do for my family. Instead, I need to focus on all the things, I DO, do for them! Lunch box notes may not be your thing, and guess what, that’s okay!
But if this is something you’d like to do, grab your free printable at the end of this post.
What Makes These Lunch Box Notes Different
I created these cards with the intention of speaking life over our children’s lives and days. Sure many days my notes read “I love you!” A simple note is perfectly fine. It doesn’t need to be fancy.
But there is something powerful about speaking life over our children and reminding them of who they are in Christ. You can see in these notes I made sure to include some encouraging and uplifting scriptures and Biblical principles.
