I was blog hopping this morning and discovered two great posts that I just had to share because I loved the ideas and they’re so doable! YAY! Just a reminder, even if you still have young ones at home you can incorporate these ideas too. But both of these ideas are geared toward kids that are off to school every day.
First up – from our friends at Just Something I Made – napkin messages! The original post is done by an artist, and so her doodled napkins are works of art in themselves but I love the idea of sending messages in your child’s lunch bag … often! And drawing on a napkin is a cute way to do it. I especially love how she tells that as her son got older, she got creative with leaving a heart for him by hiding it in the drawing, so the other kids at the lunch table would get into the game too. Very clever! See what I’m talking about when you visit the post HERE.
Next is actually the post that led me to the napkin post – personalized pencils. Another fabulous and easy (though a little time consuming) idea of making little mini messages to modge podge onto your child’s pencils. Love it! Find out more when you visit the family economics site here.
Have you ever done this for your kids? My kids are homeschooled so I didn’t pack lunches for them except if they were off to a field trip or something – and in that case I’d stamp a quick mini-card to include or write a little love note on a 3×5 card – but these clever ideas take that to the next level! Love it!
