Welcome to Lunch box Round Up #8! And to avoid keeping you in suspense, I will give you the surprise first. Remember, 2 weeks ago when I posted the idea for the lunch box survey and some of you thought it was a cute idea, but that it might be too time-consuming with the too-short lunch breaks? Well, I've created my own, and not only is it shorter, but it's also REUSABLE! You can just attach it to, or tuck into the lunchboxes, and they can choose whether they want to fill it out each day or not. So, here is your new Lunch box Comment card to print and keep. Please bear in mind, this is the first time I've ever created a printable for the blog and it was So. Much. Harder. than I expected. Whew! So, it's VERY IMPORTANT that you follow the printing instructions to ensure the image prints correctly.
1. Right click the image and choose "Save Image As"
2. Save it to your computer
3. When ready to print, choose "Best Quality"
4. Choose 4X6 for your print size. (This photo has been formatted to print as a 4X6.)
Here's how to use and REUSE your lunch box comment card:
Trim all the excess from the printed page. You will now laminate your card. I picked up these self-laminating sheets at Wal-mart in the office supply section. Of course, if you have a laminator, you could just use that. I do not.

You will also want to pick up some fine tip dry erase markers, & some small Velcro fasteners if you want to attach it to the lunch box.
Once your card is laminated, you can choose to either tuck the card into your child's lunch box, or use small, self-sticking velcro tabs to attach it to the inside lid of the lunch box. This will allow you to remove the card in order to clean the lunch box (or the card itself!)
I hope you like it, and I would love to hear feedback about your feedback from those who decide to try it! I can't wait to try it on my tween. I'll be sure to report back how it goes and I'll also post some pics of the comment card inside of her lunch box!
