So simple, yet full of impact!

I’ve got 4 kids in public school, and while they are away, I miss them. I just want them to know I love them and I am thinking of them while they are away, and I love that they love these lunch notes with jokes. In the past few years, I’ve shared lots and lots of free printable lunch jokes on my site, and now I’ve got more with the school theme.

Here is what I love about lunch jokes:

It’s a subliminal message. Though I often sign “love, mom” in the bottom corner, it’s more about the gesture, and bringing a smile to their faces each day. I know that if I slip a joke in their lunches, I’ll get a guaranteed smile, and for a split moment, they have that sense of security in an otherwise hectic day at school.

I also love that most of my kids will stockpile the jokes and save them. My teenage son told me that one day last year, he and his friends went through 30 or more jokes that he had stashed, read them all at once, and decided on the one they thought was the best/most funny.  It was so fun for me to hear which one that was, and brought a big smile to my face and my heart! {Hint, it was from the Star Wars set}

My kids’ friends look forward to the daily jokes as well, and my youngest daughter even had an adult cafeteria monitor come to her each day to find out the daily joke! I had a reader once tell me that she slips them into her husbands lunch, I LOVE that!

Sharing a joke is less mushy than a note, and for perfect for all ages. If the young ones can’t fully read yet, I did create a set for my daughter when she went to kindergarten with silly pictures on it. Anytime you can slip in a school lunch note is a win.

This is how I prep the jokes:

  1. Print a page for each child
  2. Slip in kitchen drawer
  3. Cut as I go
  4. write their name at the top and “love mom” at the bottom each morning

The jokes I’ve shared in the past are holiday related, I’ve got a Disney FROZEN set, animals, superhero’s, princesses, etc.
