8.25.2017

lunchbox love notes for kids

It been busy here with back to school started last Wednesday for the two oldest kiddos.  Catherine is now in 4th, Matthew in 2nd and in 2 weeks, our youngest starts preschool.  Then next week, Fall soccer season begins.  So I took some time out last week to work on the planner and just trying to get ahead (at least for the next month) like prepping 20 days worth of lunchbox love notes for the kiddos.  So that will be the project I am sharing today...40 lunchbox love notes for kids, featuring the cute Little Dog Agenda and Little Cat Agenda from Mama Elephant along with a short technique video (it's only 4 minutes long) of how to make them yourself.  

VIDEO



Here are the complete 20 little dogs love notes for Matthew.  On the first day of school, I gave him this super hero dog note (first one on the left) with the sentiment that reads "and so the adventure begins."  How cute and fitting for the first day back!

And here are the complete 20 little cats for Catherine.  There is a cat story call "Ginger" that is a favorite of her.  And Ginger has orange stripes.  So I made these little cats to look like Ginger.

Here are two photos from the first day of school.  It is so nice having the kiddos get pick up and drop off right at our driveway.  We have the same bus driver from last year.  So Catherine water-colored her a picture :D

What sweet little lunch notes to include for a "touch of home" while at school, Christina! And, great forethought to have them done in advance, so you're not panicking at the last minute. Cute beyond words. How sweet of Catherine to draw a special picture for her bus driver, too. Happy back-to-school for all.
Hope your card drive was successful and we'll be anxiously awaiting the outcome news. I was happy to participate to this loving cause.
