Send a little note in your kid’s lunch boxes for Valentine’s Day or any time, just to remind them how much you love them with these free printable Valentine’s Day lunch box notes.
I found the note crumpled up next to a lone sandwich crust in the bottom of the box, and I decided it was time to stop sending lunch box notes.
I had been thinking for a while that it probably wasn’t ‘cool’ to put notes in my boy’s school lunch box. It’s not always easy being a nine year old, and while I was sad that those days were over I accepted it, and moved on.
Then a few months later, as I was making dinner and he was packing his lunch box for the next day he said “why don’t you send me notes in my lunch any more?”
I gently explained that I thought he might be ‘too old’ for that and that it might be embarrassing for him, and that that was ok. And just as gently he explained to me that yes, sometimes it was a little embarrassing, but he just read the note privately and then quickly scrunched it up so no one saw…and he missed them.
And so, every now and then, I put a little note in all my kid’s lunch boxes, and I’m not the least bit worried if they come back scrunched up!
Free Printable Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Notes.
Valentine’s Day is not really a big event here in Australia, it’s all over priced flowers and romance, and really not my thing. What is more ‘my thing’ is ignoring all that and focussing on doing nice things for people I care about. And a super easy way to remind your kids (or anyone) that you love them, is with a little note!
These free printable love notes are perfect for lunch boxes, but you could also stick them around the house for people to find, or even use them to leave random kindness notes in public places. I want to put a ‘You are loved’ one in a library book, with a little note to pass it on!
There is a page of notes with sayings on them (because it’s hard enough to make school lunches without having to think up cute things to write on a note!), and also a page with lines so you can write your own personalised messages if you wish.
This printable is an A4 sized pdf file, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open it. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
You can find more free printable lunch box notes here, along with some ideas of what to write on them. They’d make fun and funky Valentines notes too!
