I love leaving little surprises for my kids on Valentine’s day, especially little love notes in their lunches. It’s a subtle way of letting them know I’m thinking of them while they are at school. So, today I’m sharing some really fun Printable Lunch Box Notes and cute food ideas to help add a little fun to your kids lunchtime.
Free Printable Valentine Lunch Box Notes For Kids
To pack a little bit of extra love I also included some cute foods to go along with our little love notes. I picked up a few things to use like heart shaped cookie cutters, cupcake liners, Valentine picks, and Valentine rings. Which you can find just about anywhere during Valentine’s Day.
One idea I used as a little Valentine treat for my daughter was a pack of gem rings. I like keeping Horizon’s Organic string cheese in their lunches because they’re a good source of calcium and vitamin D. The rings fit perfectly over the string cheese.
Strawberries are another perfect addition to a Valentine themed lunch because of their bright red color. To accentuate the heart shape, first cut it in half vertically and then make a small V-shaped notch at the top of the berry using a knife. A mini heart cutter would also work for this. Then I used the arrow picks and put them through a few of the strawberries.
Print off your copy of our Valentine lunch box notes and keep them in the kitchen where you prep your lunches. I cut them up and sign, “love, mom” on each one. These cards also make great gift tags, or they can hand them out to their friends at school.
You also can’t forget some pink milk! I think shelf stable milk boxes are a great alternative to juice. Horizon has a few different flavor options too that the kids love from vanilla, chocolate, and of course strawberry. Horizon also offers many other organic options like crackers, cottage cheese, fruit snacks, and sandwich crackers like the ones I included in our themed lunch. I used a cute Valentine cupcake liner to hold the organic peanut butter crackers in.
