I’m so excited to share another batch of kids lunch jokes, plus a new set of brain teasers for the older kid crowd! 2 years ago I introduced the first set of lunch jokes, and they were so popular with readers as well as my kids, so I made many more sets. I even mades sets with holiday themes throughout the year! It was something that I wanted to do for my kids that I though others might enjoy, too. My fabulous friend Kim at 733 Blog whipped these up this new batch for me to share with all of you! At the bottom of the post, you’ll find the link for these, and to my past post with over 100 printables of more lunch jokes to last you throughout the year!
It all started when I wanted to do more than just put a little note in my kids school lunches….
I wanted them to:
a) know I love them and was thinking of them (just putting anything in there does that)
b) put a smile on their face from mom
c) share something fun with their friends at the lunch table
This first set I’m sharing today can really be for any age, but geared towards the younger elementary school crowd. I’ll still cut them up for my middle schooler, though. Click on the jokes to download, or there are links at the bottom.
The second set is a bit trickier, I call them brain teasers. They are aimed for the middle school (or even high school) age group, but it would still be a fun challenge for the younger crowd (and the answer IS on the back).
For each set, there are two pages, one for the front and one for the back. You would ideally print on front and back from your printer. They are lined up so that the answers are on the back of the question. If you don’t have a duplex option to flip the print and the printer feeds it through, you just have to line up the paper so it prints the right! When I couldn’t figure out my printer to do duplex printing, I have printed them before not double sided and just cut ‘em and taped ‘em together. No biggie! I personally will print 3 copies of each page (for my 3 kids), cut them up and put them in the drawer in the kitchen with the ziploc bags that I use for school lunch making. That way, they are all ready to go each morning. I’ve actually gone to visit them at lunch and get to see them pull out their joke, and share it with their friends. It’s fun. Their friends start to look forward to it, too!
Hope you and your kids love them as much as we do! Click on the links below to download the printables.
including holidays throughout the year
