Guest post from Rebecca from WithLOVEfromMEtoYOU
My eldest daughter is now at Preschool, and every now and then, I like to put little notes in her lunch box to make her smile. I tried writing and drawing pictures on paper bags, or on small pieces of paper but in the end they got food on them, of course, and by the time she saw them, they were looking a little worse for wear.
I was thinking it would be a great idea to manufacture little buttons to put in kids lunch boxes with different messages or pictures. Then it occurred to me: what makes it special is that I write the messages for my daughter, not a machine. So…
Enter the milk bottle lid!
It’s like a button, and you can write on it and it doesn’t get soggy with lunch (and I love to recycle).
Happy Lunchbox Message Buttons
Milk bottle lids
I wrote messages and drew pictures on the inside of the milk bottle lids. My daughter can’t quite read yet so pictures are great. I then placed funky little decorations on the flip sides of the lids to jazz them up and make them extra special. Stickers are great but you can just leave them if you like.
Milk bottle lid messages are a sweet way to give your child a little surprise in their lunch box and remind them that you love them through out the day.
