Craft | Lunchbox Chalkboard
Back to school is an exciting time. It is often bittersweet, sending our little ones off for a full day without us. I remember my mom used to write sweet notes on our napkins, tucked into our lunches. I loved these thoughtful little notes, even when they should have embarrassed me.
With those notes in mind I devised a super simple craft that with make brightening your little one’s day a cinch. These mini lunch box chalkboards are the perfect way to pack a little love right in with your kiddo’s juice box.
thin cardboard (cereal or cracker boxes work great)
a magnet (for a metal box) or sticky velcro (for a fabric box)
Cut your cardboard to fit the top of your lunch box.
Paint it with chalkboard paint (allow to dry at least 24 hours before you write on it)
Frame your chalkboard with decorative tape.
Attach the magnet or velcro. I simply taped my magnet to the back of my board.
Write a message with chalk and stick it their lunch box.
Happy Back to School Crafting!
