It’s that time of the year – my kiddos go back to school soon. For some kids, school has already started. It’s hard to believe summer is almost over.
Here are a few ideas for your first day of school pictures as well as some lunch box note ideas.
First Day of School Pictures
I love taking pictures of my three kids on their first day of school. You get to see how much they have grown from year to year. Last year, I used “Back to School” signs from I Heart Naptime. The signs added some fun to our photos. I’ll be printing a new set this year and they’ll look like this.
Lunch Box Notes
Do you like to leave a note in your child’s lunch box. I started leaving lunch box notes for my kiddos when they were in preschool. My lunch box notes are usually cute drawings with a “Love, Mom” in the corner. I like to call them Lunch Box Napkin Notes because they’re actually on napkins and not paper.
And because I like to be different, last year I created Wood Chalkboard Clips. I draw and write something on it and then clip it to a baggie. The best part is I can erase it and create a new message. I have fun with it by theming it based on the time of the year – for example, pumpkins for fall/Halloween, snowman for winter, and hearts on Valentine’s Day.
If you like the traditional paper notes, then here are a few lunch box notes to print:
- The back to school apples from One Charming Party are adorable. I especially love the Apple Jacks as the worm.
- I LOVE the lunch box note tags for fruit over at alphamom.
- If your kids are Disney fans, then these printable Disney lunch box notes are for you.
- The lunch box note/jokes from All for the Boys will make your kids smile.
