Introducing: bento box planners, lunchbox notes, and more!

Hey, friends. Thanks so much for signing up for my email list – you’ll get the news first! I cannot tell you the amount of times I have been asked to create a bento box planner, or lunchbox notes, or the dozen other ideas I now have running through my brain. Finally this summer, I asked my best friend Jess (@theoakvillage) to collaborate with me to create some really functional printables for you. Jess is a kindergarten teacher and a digital artist, and with four kids between the two of us, we have packed a few lunch boxes and written a few lunch notes in our time and wanted to combine our skills to bring you these back to school printables. NOW LIVE!

This Back to School bundle includes:

  • A bento box menu planner and grocery planner – get your children involved in the lunch making process by having them draw or write in their choices for the week. This is a great time to discuss what foods help fuel our body! Use the accompanying grocery planner to add those lunchbox picks to the shopping list.
  • A set of 26 Alphabet Affirmation lunchbox notes (+ 6 blanks to write your own messages on). Each letter of the alphabet represents a positive trait and supporting affirmation. This is a great well-being support for kids and act as brilliant conversation starters. 
      • You’ll receive a set of notes in colour, and a set of notes in black & white for your child to colour as they please. 6 blank notes are included for you to write anything you wish. You’ll also receive a printing and lamination guide for your personal use.
  • A fun back to school printable for children to fill in and colour.


We’ve also created a really special “Get To Know Your New Teacher” survey. We’ve been on both the giving and receiving end of teacher gift giving, and while teachers appreciate the thought behind any gift, no matter what –  it’s extra special when the gift giver has a bit of insider info to give something really mindfully intentional. A sober teacher may feel awkward if gifted a bottle of wine, and those sweet treats during the holidays may not be appropriate for a diabetic teacher. This printable teacher survey allows you to get to know what your child’s teacher *really* likes or needs (not to mention really make that teacher feel seen and valued!) and allows you to give a really special gift. Perfect for educators, daycare providers, librarians, educational aides, etc.


Please note: these are digital files available for immediate download after purchase. No physical copies will be sent to you. Save them to your computer and print as often as you’d like. We hope you love these as much as we do, and that they help with the stress of lunch packing, gift giving, and lunchbox note writing. Your support means the world to us.
