On the days that Rowan is in school, I put a little love note in his lunchbox. It is a ritual suggested to me by his school, and I am happy for it. I am sure it will become uncool to him as he gets older, but for now, he enjoys his lunch basket surprises.
I am also quite addicted to the ritual of sitting down, gathering the colored pencils, and creating these notes. These evening moments of coloring are quite meditative too. I find myself getting lost in the process, and feeling truly in the moment. It’s a shame that as we get older we toss aside these activities we did on a daily basis as children. Coloring should not be reserved just for the under 12 set. So in that vain, I have created these printables that you can color then slip into your child’s lunch.
