  • "When I was packing his lunch the Friday morning of field day, I decided to stick a note inside. I tried to make it upbeat and comforting because I knew how much his little heart was still hurting. And sure enough, when I picked him up from school that afternoon, he said, “Thanks, Mama, for the note you sent me. It made me smile.” Read more at BooMama
  • This small gesture lets them know that I am thinking of them, even though we are not together. After school, they often can not wait to tell me that they solved the puzzle or which of their friends had a joke to tell in response." Read more at  Cookin' Canuck
  • When we need to reconnect a little, when I fix my kids' lunches, I sometimes put a note in with them as a surprise, just to let them know I'm thinking of them, and am tuned in to what's going on at school, e.g. "I love you, and good luck on your test!" Read more at Busy Mom
  • "As my kids are getting older (2, 7, and 9) I think they need that one on one time even more. They need to feel special."  Read more at Cheat Day Cafe

  • "I was sorting through piles OF piles in my son’s room recently. Can you guess what I found? A couple of my lunch notes to him. I figured he’d toss ‘em. Nope. Looks like he’ll have a few notes from mom is his childhood box of memorabilia too." Read more at Jenny on the Spot
  • "Throughout the summer, I've been bringing them to the park so that they can eat their packed lunches outside. I've left a couple of post-it notes with smiley faces in my son's lunchbox in the past but never thought of printing out an official invitation for a lunch date." Read more at Mrs. Mogul
  • "I love sending my kids off to school with a lunch that I’ve prepared for them though. I like the fact that I know it’s something they’ll eat, and that they’ll have just that tiny piece of me with them as they munch along." Read more at Mom to Three Girls
  • "Life's too short to miss out connecting with our children. It's the perfect time to start! Smuckers gives us ideas, recipes, and a free site to use. I'll be printing these goodies for school lunch, that's for sure!" Read more at Cold Noodles for Breakfast
  • "Once in a while I grab a little sheet of paper and jot a little love note for her. For young readers, such as my daughter was last year, notes can be a simple smiley face or heart or you can use simple phrases that they know." Read more at Multi-Minding Mom
  • "I have the best memories of bringing my lunch to school because my mom would go out of her way to put special touches inside.  Whether it was a sweet note on my napkin or my favorite treat tucked inside, I will always have fond memories of sitting down to eat my lunch at school."
