It’s almost time! Back-to-school is right around the corner, and I know in some parts of the US and globe kiddos have already started! I have mixed feelings about it this year. My kids go to the most incredible school and have the best staff, but I love having them home. It’s bittersweet, and today I am sharing these little printable notes I’ll be sending the first week with Justin and Jackson (maybe Jayden too!) just to brighten up their day as they head back to full-days of learning. These Back-to-School Printable Lunchbox Notes are free and you can print them off for your kiddos too!
Now, my printer is in serious need of some new cartridges so don’t mind the quality. It’s an amazing huge laser printer but I’ve neglected to get some new ink cartridges the past few months, oops!I decided I’d be a little different this year and start the year off with sending the kids little motivational notes for the first week. I’m sure I’ll create different ones throughout the year and share with you but for now, these back-to-school printable lunchbox notes are super fun and you can have them just in time to start. Our school starts on September 3rd and although some of you probably have kids in school already no fear! You can still print them and use them as they are basic and not back-to-school branded.
Having a hard time looking for fun snacks to send with your kids? I always do too, but luckily I posted this fun post recently and think you may enjoy it.
These lunchbox notes I decided I want to preserve so I ran them through my laminator. Which by the way, is probably the best thing I’ve ever spent $29 on! It works so well and is so handy to have. I love being able to whip up things quickly and if I need to keep them preserved I plug it in and run the items through it really quickly. It does the job well! This is the one I grabbed on Amazon. We can now re-use them every few months or yearly if we want, and they won’t get ruined!
HOW TO USE YOUR LUNCHBOX NOTES
It’s pretty straight forward and easy, all you need is:
- This sheet of lunchbox notes
- Printer paper
- Laminator (optional)
- Laminating sheets
- Scissors or a paper cutter
- Print out your notes, send them through the laminator if you want to goes this route (which I strongly recommend) and then cut them out.
As I mentioned above in the instructions, I’d recommend laminating these if you can so you can preserve them, as little ones can be rough but also you never know what may happen in a lunchbox. Even the Best laminators are quite affordable so it might be a good investment if you’re considering using it for other jobs too. If you don’t have a laminator don’t worry – you can use packing tape to seal them up or any kind of tape, or you can leave them as-is and you can always come back and print some more if needed!
Happy back-to-school season!
