I recently made these lunchbox love notes and trivia facts for my kids and have been having so much fun with them. I make sure I write a little note on each one. Sometimes it's a random thought to go along with the trivia fact, sometimes it's a little word of encouragement or just a little note to let them know I am thinking of them throughout the day. My oldest son tosses his everyday, but I often find a stack of my daughters old lunchbox love notes in the most random places! So here's how to make them.
Copy and paste some fun trivia facts from the Internet. It really shouldn't take too long to find a list of things that would be interesting to your kids. Just use your old friend google and have at it! I saved them into a word file and then printed off two copies. I wanted each kid to have the same set of trivia facts, but put them on different paper. As much as my older son things I try to do whatever I can to embarrass him, I wouldn't send a note on flower paper in his lunchbox!
Take the facts and use your paper cutter to trim them down. I then sorted the facts into small (some were only a few words long) and large. The smaller facts could be put two to a page, the bigger ones would fill up most of the page. Then I took scrapbook paper that I had laying around at home and cut it to 3x4. Use double sided tape to adhere it and viola, lunchbox notes for your school bound kiddos!
