Free printable school lunch notes

FREE printable school lunch notes from Chickabug

Surprise – a free printable!! Some friends on facebook requested printable lunch notes for back-to-school, so I whipped some up for everyone to enjoy!

I set them up in both “boy colors” and “girl colors” with a variety of cheerful patterns, so you can pack a different note every day of the week. The pre-printed text includes:

• “I am proud of you because…”
• “You make me smile when…”
• “After school let’s…”
• “You are wonderful because…”
• “I’ll be thinking about you today when…”
• “Here’s a special treat because…”

There are also blank sheets (not shown) so that you can also come up with your own messages from scratch – or even draw a little picture. : )

You can download the printable school notes here. I hope your kids love them!

    NOTE: My website is not really active. I don't know what I am doing with it yet. I was actually laid up with a broken leg for 6 weeks as was inspired to do anything that involved mental creativity.
