We know how busy mornings can be with school kids at home. While you may want to write a personalized note with every lunch box you pack, sometimes there's just not enough time.


We compiled some of the funniest jokes and riddles to make your kid laugh, added positive self-affirmations to boost your child's self-esteem, and created a few sidequests for your little ones to complete throughout the school day. Our free printables will help you personalize your kid's lunch box without taking extra time out of your morning routine. Just print them the night before so you have time to enjoy your cup of tea in the morning.





Who doesn't love a good pun? We've included some of these silly jokes in our printable below and added additional ones so you can write your own notes!

Whenever you think your kid is in need of a little extra positivity, place a card with a positive affirmation in their lunch box so they can get a boost of self-esteem halfway through their day.


Besides jokes, riddles, and positive affirmations, you can also send your kid to school with quests to complete! Come up with tasks that can benefit their school performance, help them feel more confident, or learn something new. Whether that's sharing their bag of chips, holding the door open for someone, or giving someone a genuine compliment -- these little challenges can help your kid come out of their shell.

Make your kid feel like a superhero with a sidequest using one of the examples we've listed below.

  • Sit next to someone new during lunch today.
  • Share your dessert with a friend.
  • Ask a question during class.
  • Draw a picture during recess.
  • Hold the door open for someone.
  • Find 3 different colored leaves during recess.
  • Exchange a part of your lunch with a friend today.
  • Sit next to someone different while riding the bus home today.
  • Say something nice to a schoolmate.
  • Help someone today.

When your child comes home from school, you can ask them if they were able to complete their sidequest. This can be a great conversation starter for the dinner table and can lead to many more questions (e.g. "How did that make you feel?" "Would you do that again?" "Do you think it helped?").

Thanks for reading. Whether it's the first day of school or any other day of the semester, your child will always appreciate discovering a special note in their lunch box. We hope that our lunch box printables inspire you to put a smile on your little one's face and make the school year a little easier for both your kid and yourself.
