Whether it’s their first day in Kindergarten (like my daughter – eek!) or their last year of high school, kids of all ages usually get a case of the back to school jitters as summer comes to a close. It’s hard on us parents too! Want an easy way to stay connected and remind them how much they are loved? I am sharing one of my family’s favorite traditions, as well as a free download to get you started.
How It Started
Growing up, my parents always found ways to sneak me a note when they felt I needed a bit of encouragement. I treasure the memories of my Mom’s scribbled drawings on my paper lunch sacks and the 10 handwritten jokes my Dad hid throughout my bag the first (and last!) time I went to sleepover camp.
My hubby and I have both happily continued this tradition with our own kids, and they keep each and every note they find.
Lunch Box Love Notes for Your Family
So next time you are packing up a healthy lunch for your kids, why not take a minute to include a note too? Encourage them to do their best, have fun, and laugh a little too. Just to get you started, I’m giving you a FREE Lunch Box Note kit – download, print and pop one in their lunch boxes for miles of smiles. I hope your kids have an awesome school year filled with new adventures and lots of notes from home!
