I’m trying to be better about lunches this year. I dread making lunches every day, so I’ve to mix it up a little and have gotten some great ideas from this site. It’s amazing how looking at other lunches can give you ideas you never thought of, and help break up the sandwich-chips-apple-cookie routine.
Something my kids LOVE is jokes in their lunches.This idea was born when we had a page of kids’ jokes from a church activity, and I started cutting them up and tucking them inside my kids’ lunch and they loved it. We ran out too quickly!
So, this year I had the idea to gather a bunch of jokes, copy, paste and format them, then print them out, cut them, and then have them ready to go for lunchboxes. I didn’t have time, so I hired my oldest daughter to do it for me. The good news is: we are sharing them so you can enjoy them as well! Now, these are not fancy and colorful, but there is a joke for every day of the school year.
I printed them out on a different color paper for each child, and then put them in baggies so we can quickly grab them on hectic mornings. It’s fun to write little messages on the back on the days that you have time. These are great as ice breakers for children, especially those why may be shy. Pretty soon, all of the kids at the lunch table will want to know what the joke of the day is.
Enjoy! Here is the link.
