Lunch Box Notes

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?
