There is a new sensation sweeping across the nation’s school playgrounds – lunchbox notes. Fun, creative notes parents leave for their children in their lunches are becoming a big part of daily school life. Kids are even comparing notes with their peers and competing on who has the best note.

A recent New York Times article had some great ideas for moms who would like to leave their child a little love in their lunchbox, and just maybe it will win “Best Note of the Playground.”

·     Disney has downloadable lunch notes featuring a variety of Disney characters and cute messages. One example reads, “Don’t Eat Too Fast!” featuring Lightning McQueen from the movie “Cars.”

·     Pottery Barn Kids sell packages of lunch notes with a message on one side and a trivia question on the other.

·     One parent decorates a banana with a drawing and googlie-eyed stickers, and calls them “happy bananas.”

These new lunch notes are a huge step-up from the simple heart or smiley face scribbled on a napkin. It’s a nice way for parents to unleash some creativity but most importantly, it lets the child know they are loved and thought-of. 

The article did warn against leaving lunchbox notes for kids older than age 10. At the age, it’s just not “cool.”
