Lunchbox Notes

I picked up this pack of president flashcards in the Dollar Spot at Target a couple of months ago, but haven’t found an effective way to use them until now… Lunchbox Notes!

I’m putting the cards into Bruce(6)’s lunch one president at a time. The unexpected outcome of this is that not only Bruce, but the other kids at his table are learning from the notes I put in his lunch, because he shows them to other kids. I know this because he told me once that his friend A—- knew who King Henry VIII was. That was the day that I had put a note that said “Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded Survived…. what happened to King Henry VIII’s wives” in Bruce’s lunchbox. (We had just listened to that part of history in Story of the World III.)

Imagine what would happen if every parent was putting random bits of information in their children’s lunches. The kids probably wouldn’t have time to eat!

    Love this idea. I have fond memories of my mother leaving little inspirational notes in my lunch box. Even through most of high school. I loved it but would never admit it at the time. I like how you are incorporating such an educational aspect to it.
