As a child, I was fortunate (whether I realized it or not) to have a Mom that sent me to school each day with a well-balanced, healthy, packed lunch. She sent carrots instead of potato chips and apple sauce instead of Oreos. In addition to filling my stomach with foods that provided physical energy, she would often write a lovely note on my napkin. She would take a minute to tell me that she was proud of me, that she loved me, or that she wished me luck on a test. It never failed to put a smile on my face. While window shopping at etsy recently, I came across the Small Lunch Box Notes by Life Events Handmade Designs. The shop sent me a sample set to take a look at it and I love the creativity. The set includes everthing from notes that can be sent any time like "Have a great day!" to notes for specific times like "Have a BOO-tiful day!" (halloween). My favorite is "Happy 100th day of school!". I think it would be fun to surprise your child with the note on a day that otherwise would have seemed like any other. The notes have fun illustrations on each of them and the backside of each note is blank so you can include all the important "love yous", "proud of yous", etc. Plus, unlike the napkins, that I always used and never kept (suddenly very bummed about that), these notes can be brought home and put in a scrapbook. I think this would be a fun set for any child, and at just $6.50 a set, you can pick up one for each of your children. Life Events Handmade Designs also carries Lunch Box notes, that are larger and folded, for those days you have a little more to say. You can find some great invitations and other cards in the shop as well and when purchasing from Life Events Handmade Designs, you are supporting a stay at home mom/small business owner.
