Back-to-School is a magical fun time rich with so many traditions. School shopping, a return to routine, an exciting buzz of energy filled with nervous anticipation. Whether your celebrate with a new back pack, a gift for teachers, uniforms, or brand new socks, these are the traditions your children will remember long into adulthood.
This month’s free printable download celebrates a tradition our team absolutely LOVES. Lunchbox notes. Each one can be personalized to relate to what’s happening right now in your child’s life – messages of appreciation, comfort, praise, and if need be, apology. Tuck in an occasional little treasure to add some sparkle to what may be a challenging day – a sucker, package of crayons, an invitation to join you for something special after school.
Notes to our kids are a great way for them to learn the value of the written word. More importantly, it’s a message about how truly valuable they are to us. We love this quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
The heart has its own memory, like the mind, and in it are enshrined the precious keepsakes, into which is wrought the giver’s loving thought.
Good luck in the coming school year. Enjoy!
