Lunch Box Jokes
If you asked my son, he’ll tell you that he’s too old for me to be putting things in his lunch box, like printable lunch box jokes. He’s 12. He rolls his eyes at dad jokes, which are plentiful around here.
And, he dutifully packs his own lunch every evening. It’s part of him learning to manage his arfid and grow as an eater. He can pack what he wants within certain parameters. I want him to not be hungry during the school day, but he can’t eat only Tastykakes either. So we have a list of things that are a compromise.
Still, sometimes when I’m up early in the morning, I sneak a note or lunch box joke into his lunch (as I’m double checking that there is one fruit item in the lunch!).
But you know what? You’re never too old to know that someone cares about you and is thinking about you. And that’s what lunch box jokes do.
I started doing this a few years ago. It started on a Valentine’s Day and just stuck. I had stuck a valentine and treat in his lunch box and he enjoyed it. Fast forward to 7th grade, and I stuck a simple “good luck!” note in his lunch box on the last day of basketball tryouts.
I can tell by how he mentions them sometimes that he enjoys them, even if 7th graders are too cool for school and can’t admit that they enjoy this. Sometimes he’ll even mention that a friend got a note or treat and ask “why haven’t you sent one in a while?”
So here you go. A compilation of 180 printable lunch box notes for kids.

I previously had these as 5 separate files, but readers said they preferred to download it as one file, and then just choose what pages to print.
I will include printing instructions after the file for those who need it.
