Back to School Lunchbox Notes

Lunchbox Notes

Growing up, my dad worked crazy long hours, but he never missed an opportunity to let me know that he was thinking about me. On the rare occasion that he went into work at a reasonable hour (like not before the crack of dawn), he always made my lunch and always made sure to include a special note or funny drawing in my lunchbox. I looked forward to his lunches, just for those notes. Something so small meant the world to me.

I’m looking forward to leaving little notes in Logan’s lunchbox when he starts school. Gulp, I’m not ready for that yet and luckily he’s only 2. I created a lunchbox note printable, Chiquita banana style of course, for when that day comes (I’ll be the mom crying in her car) and thought I’d share it with you. You can fill in the blanks with reasons why you love your child, or why you’re “bananas” about them. Attach the note to a Chiquita banana with some ribbon or string before placing it in your kiddo’s lunchbox. You could use the same printable in your significant other’s lunchbox too.

Do you have any special back to school memories?

Hi! I’m Vanessa and live in the middle of the Arizona desert with my husband Rich, our son Logan and our 2 cats. When I'm not busy making sure our toddler doesn't ingest crayons or cat food (his 2 favorite food groups), you can find me in my organized mess of a craft room. I blog about my love for glitter and hot glue at
