My oldest daughter started Kindergarten this year.  On the first day of school, I sent a little note in her lunch box.  She loooooved it and now requests one for everyday.  

What was a quick, one-time thing is now turning into so much more!  I love creating these little notes for her lunch box!  Each one carries a simple message letting her know how special she is.  She brings them home and we are keeping them.  One day, I hope she has special memories of her Kindergarten lunch box love notes from mom!

Here are the first few I did when my daughter requested more after Day 1:

Here are some for Halloween:

Here are some for Christmas:

And here are a handful for everyday:

I usually create these cards in the evenings while watching TV.  Sometimes I sketch them in a notebook so I'll have the ideas for later.  Many times I sketch while I'm sitting in the carpool line waiting on my daughter or just list some themes to work on.  I write the notes ahead of time so they are ready to go when I'm making her lunch in the mornings.  

My goal is to have a different note for each day. And I hope she doesn't outgrow them before I do.  I'm having too much fun!  Thanks for visiting!
