Valentine’s Day is not really a big event here in Australia, it’s mostly about romance, but I try to make sure I use it as a reminder to simply do 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 Valentines lunch box 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!
Use the Valentine’s lunch box notes with the pre-printed messages or use the blank ones to add your own message, or even add a fun lunch joke to really make them smile.
Why Send Lunch Box Notes?
I found a note crumpled up next to a lone sandwich crust in the bottom of the lunch 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 9 year olds school lunch box, and while I was sad that those days were over, I accepted it, and moved on.
Then a few weeks 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.
Sending an occasional little note in your child’s lunch box can be an easy way to connect with them, or a simple way to give a little confidence boost to a child who is struggling. Even if you think your child might be too old for a cute lunch box note, a little hand written message, even if it comes home scrunched up, can be meaningful to your child.
