I’ve been sending lunch box notes with E’s lunch for years. Today is the second to last day of Kindergarten, and in first grade, she’ll be eating hot lunch at school. I’ll still be making her a sandwich for second breakfast (another one of those sweet German school traditions 😉 ), though, so there will still be room for notes.
When I have time, I like to draw a little something for her. It’s not really one of my superpowers, but E loves it 🙂 When I don’t have time, I use these Blank Lunch Box Notes that I have ready to go in the drawer, skip the drawing, and just write a few sweet words that I know will put a smile on her face when she opens her lunch box.
At this point, she likes to leave me little notes, too, which is amazing <3 Maybe these printable notes will encourage your kids to practice their handwriting as well!

Materials for Blank Lunch Box Notes
- Printable PDF file (download for free below).
- Laminator, laminating pouches (optional).
- Paper cutter or scissors.
What’s in the printable PDF file?
There’s one page of nine blank lunch box notes in the file. Each note features one food item plus blank lines for your message. The cards show a yogurt cup, beans, a red pepper, green grapes, apple slices, a banana, eggs, a carrot, and a bowl of cereal.
Print out the page, cut the individual lunch box notes apart, write your message, and tuck the note into your kids’ lunch box, leave it on the breakfast table, or for after-school snack.
