Back to School Cookies...Lunch Box Love Notes!

There is one cookie theme I've never gotten around to.
(well, there's probably more than one....)

Back to School cookies.

Know why?



I love them to bits, I really do,
but seriously needs to start.

Last year I made these cookies for a guest post over at Something Swanky,
but I never shared the full set over here.

When Ashton asked if I'd like to write a post for her blog, I was beyond thrilled!  

 But then the baker's equivalent to 'what am I going to wear' kicked in....

what the heck should I make????

I wanted to do something different...something back to schoolish....

hmmm.....what to do, what to do?!

So I went to Target.

(There's always something helpful to be found at Target..)

I found these!!

Lunch box notes to put in your munchkins' lunch as a little pick-me-up!

So stinkin' cute!

When I was in grade school, 
my girlfriend Amber always found little notes in her lunch box from her mom.  
Sometimes it was a comic strip from the newspaper,
 other times a little message on her napkin.

It was something I never forgot, so when Ethan, my older son, 
started school, I couldn't wait to send him little love notes.

It didn't go quite so well.

He was mortified.

So I stopped, but I never forgot about them.

Now that Jack is going to kindergarten, 
I have another shot at this lunch box love note business.

I think these might be cool enough to not be embarrassing.

Especially when you are trying to be a
 big, brave kindergartener that doesn't need his mom......

But I'm thinking I can come up with something even cooler...

What if your little note, was really your snack?

You can't be embarrassed by your snack, right?

Okay, hugs and kisses and I Love You's might be a little embarrassing.

Maybe I'll stick with inspirational.

I'm hoping there won't be anything stressful enough about Kindergarten that he'll need that one, but you never know.

Oh!  The school play! 
 Yup, that one will be good.

Here's my favorite.

Octopus hugs!!!

I think he'll like them.

And if he's embarrassed....

...he can eat the evidence!

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B

  1. Embarrassed? He'll be the hit of the lunch room!

  2. So cute! And yeah, I was always worried my boys would be embarrassed, I just drew a very small smiley-face in the middle of their napkin. But who am I kidding?.....I bet they never saw them, cuz when did they EVER use a napkin!?! LOL

  3. So colorful! I adore the octopus!

  4. Wonderful biscuits. And you know what ? Each mother should have one week without husband and children, EACH YEAR ! True holidays ! :)
