I love to add little notes to my boys' lunches. Sometimes they are on a napkin. Occasionally I'll find printables of jokes that I'll throw in there. But perhaps my favorite is the banana.
I found this idea online a few years ago. All you need is a banana and a toothpick. In the morning while I pack the boys' lunches I scratch a note into the side of a banana with the toothpick. You don't even have to break the skin--just hard enough to make a slight indentation. By lunchtime the note has turned nice and dark for the boys to easily read.
It's such a fun way to send a little love to my boys during the day. Do you have any fun ways to send love to your kids while they are gone all day?
