Inspirational Lunch Box Notes for Kids | Free Printable

Help your kids through the day with these inspirational lunch box notes featuring positive messages they need to hear.

Have you ever heard of the "Magic Ratio?" Researchers say that for every one negative interaction, you need five positive ones to counteract it. It's true for most everything, and something that we need to keep in mind as parents who want to foster strong, loving relationships with our kids.

So what does this have to do with lunch boxes? Everything.

Our kids hear a lot of negative things out in the big world. And no matter how positive and encouraging we are at home, there will be times that they are struggling, and its often at school. Maybe they had a hard time with a test, a conflict with a classmate, or a rough time on the playground. Whatever it is, our kids can always use encouragement and a positive thought in their day.

That's why I love these inspirational lunch box notes. They are the perfect thing to give your child a pick me up on those tough days (and we never know which days those will be). And I have them here as free printables for your kids too!
