Printable School Lunch Jokes + Holidays

I’ve always liked to send a little note to my kids in their lunches.  I want them to know throughout the day, that I love and miss them.  My boys are 8 and 10, and I don’t want to embarrass them with mushiness when it could get into the wrong hands.  So last year I decided to do something a little different and sent jokes in with their lunches….. and they absolutely LOVED it!  On the days that I missed, they let me know and the next day reminded me to put a new joke in there.  Not only did they enjoy it, but their table-mates at lunch also looked forward to it.  Sometimes I would come in to visit for lunch, and every once in a while would catch them as they pulled out that joke and read it to themselves first, and get a big smile on their face before sharing it with their friends.  Melted. my. mothers. heart. It’s a little thing that means a lot.

I spent several hours last year coming up with a major Word document of jokes.  I printed out the list and kept them in a secret spot in the kitchen, so I could easily access them each morning when I prepared their lunches.  I hand wrote them each morning, but now I am sharing my research with you in a cute/gender neutral printable!

I asked my design friend Aimee over at Sprik Space  to spice them up with some colorful borders, and she made it printer friendly and flipped so that the answers (and enough space to handwrite) are on the back!  I have over 100 jokes, but it will take a bit to transfer them all over to this cute style, so I am rolling out 10 a week for the next while until I’ve shared them all.  Check back each Friday to get more!  CLICK HERE or on the image below to download this weeks jokes for the front/back PDF!   You can set your printer to duplex printing (front & back), and it will come out looking double sided on its own.  If your printer doesn’t do duplex printing, just  print the front page and re-feed the paper to print the back.

Be the coolest mom in the class, and make note-writing fun for your kids, too!
