I’m going to admit something right now. I am not a creative lunch packer. I am the mom who often is making their kids help pack their lunch boxes & am scrambling at the last minute to get their lunch packed before we head out the door. I have not mastered packing lunches at night. I don’t pack lunches filled with bus-shaped sandwiches & star-shaped cheese and crackers. And there’s definitely no color-coordinated lunches in this house. Again, there is not much creativity in my lunch packing. But, there is one special thing that I do try to include in my kids’ lunch from time to time: a little lunchbox note or joke just to let them know that mom is thinking about them. This could be a fun, cute, printable joke that I found online or just a simple “I Love You” written on a note. Today, I am sharing a little creative lunchbox inspiration with this simple and sweet lunchbox idea: Hidden Lunchbox Notes using Welch’s Fruit Rolls.
Welch’s Fruit Rolls is one of my kids’ favorite treats to pack in their lunchbox this year. This fun & delicious snack is a new hit in our house after discovering it at the grocery store last month. This snack has fruit as the first ingredient and also has 100% daily value of Vitamin C & 25% daily value of Vitamins A & E. I decided to turn this simple and easy snack into a fun little place for a hidden note!
It’s time to get a little creative. All you have to do is unroll the fun! First, unwrap & unroll a Welch’s Fruit Roll. Place a note inside and roll the snack back up for a little lunchbox surprise. There are two different ways that you can surprise your child with a hidden lunch note.
Make Your Own Hidden Lunchbox Notes
1. You could use an edible ink pen and simply write a little note on the Welch’s Fruit Roll. Roll the snack back up & pack it in the lunch box. This is really easy to do, if you have an edible ink pen on hand. But, I realize that most people don’t have these pens at home, so I came up with another secret hidden note idea.
2. If you don’t have edible ink pens, then you can simply cut a small strip of paper to fit on top of the Welch’s Fruit Roll. Write a simple joke or a special note and place on the snack. Roll the snack back up and pack in the lunch box.
Both of these ideas are sure to surprise your child at lunch & neither require a huge amount of effort to make a lunch just a little more special! Make sure to check out the new Welch’s Fruit Rolls for a great lunchtime treat. Other go-to snack ideas from Welch’s include: Welch’s Fruit Snacks and Welch’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Snacks.

All my kids love this snack and I love that there is no mess when eating them!
