Inside: Back to School Lunchbox Jokes for your little one, to keep the giggles going.
It’s back to school time already! As you prepare lunchboxes for your kids, and hurry to put everything in it’s place before school begins in the morning, make sure you are adding in a fun lunchbox joke to create cherished memories that last a lifetime. My children have always loved the special notes I leave in their lunchboxes, and now that they can read I add in jokes. They come home from school and tell me how much they loved it.
Lunchbox jokes are a fun way to show your kids extra love while you’re away from them, or make indoor lunchtime a silly experience.

As always, I recommend putting all of this together ahead of time to keep the unnecessary chaos out of our lives. This is so painfully true in the morning when we are getting ready for school. You don’t want to wait on your printer — only to find out you’re out of ink, or paper, or who knows what!
I also like to do the laminating ahead of time too, because we don’t have that extra time in the morning to create, print, laminate, and then finally get these things into lunchboxes.
Let’s keep that chaos out of our life and just prepare this ahead of time. I like to print everything the night before, laminate them, and have everything ready to go when I am packing lunches in the morning.
For these cards it will take a little bit of preparation. You’ll need to print them out (there are 2 pages, but a total of 12 jokes), laminate, then cut out.
Here is the list of everything you need.

–A laminator– If you want to keep these printables around as long as you can, so I recommend laminating the pages so you can get the most use out of them. I have three children, so these notes get a lot of use.
-Scissors- You have to cut out the cards, you can use scissors, or this fancy paper cutter.

This is pretty self explanatory, but I still get questions, and I want to make sure you’re getting the most of your products, so if you already know everything you need and what to do, feel free to scroll on by.
-gather supplies: your pages, laminator, scissors, and lunchboxes.
-laminate all the pages.
-cut out each of the cards, you can see the white space around each card, that’s where you’ll want to cut them.
Then boom! You’re ready!
If you’re like me, you always like to personalize things, use a dry eraser marker to write a silly note, draw a heart, or say I love you on the back. If you use a marker, I always recommend keeping it outside of their actual lunchbox to keep it off food. But I’m overly cautious with my kid’s lunches.

Back to School Lunchbox Jokes Cards
These jokes were put together lovingly by me, with my children in mind. I love creating things that they will love and enjoy. I scoured the internet, borrowed joke books from the library, and asked all my friends for the silliest back to school jokes I could find, and these are the BEST.
Each card lays on a rainbow background because my son loves all the colors, and my daughter wanted them to be bright and happy. If your child loves these things too, you’ll love these!
Even if your child stays home for lunch, they’ll love these jokes. During that crazy year when we all stayed home I still put out a joke with their lunch. There is something truly special about listening to your children giggle and understand silly jokes.
Printable Lunch Box Jokes for Kindergarten
You can make these work younger kids, even if they don’t know how to read.
My kindergartener is learning to read, so it’s fun for us to talk about all the words on the paper.
These are best for children who know how to read, but if your child’s teacher (or you!) will read the note, it would still be a cute thing to add in to their lunch.
So YES! These work for kindergarteners!

The thing I love about printables for preschoolers is how it helps them use their ands to interact with letters, numbers, and shapes.
I love when they can cut up papers, or squish play doh between their fingers.
When I began this journey to create more for my preschooler, it was mostly just so I could keep him occupied without putting a screen in front of his face.
It was so tempting, and so easy to just put on a Bluey episode. That’s when I decided to start making things, so these printables were MORE easy, and MORE tempting.
I like bright colors and fun art, so you will be sure to get that from all of my printables.
I’m glad you’re here, and I hope you love what you see, and come back for more, it would mean the world to me.
