Starting school is a huge step and can bring mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety. This week my 5 year old starts primary school and we are all so excited for him! These lunchbox cards are my way of helping him settle down in his new environment.

Using These Lunchbox Cards
Print out the sheets in color or black and white. I don't have a color printer at home so I actually colored in the black and white ones myself. But if you're printing out the colored sheet, rest assured that they'll come out much cuter than mine 🙂
I highly recommend laminating them to avoid damage and stop them getting dirty, especially if you'll be reusing them week after week like I plan to.
Cut them into individual cards and you're ready to surprise your little one! Not only do these warm their hearts and make them smile, they also sneakily encourage reading!
