Right after school started, I shared how my kids love lunchbox notes (except my junior higher, who shockingly refuses to take notes from his mom to school with him. It’s fun to threaten him with them, though.)
But the rest of the kids love them, and for at least one of them it can make the difference between an awful and a wonderful day.
So when my friend Laura Kelly designed these candy corn printables, I knew just what I’d do with them.
Me and My INKlings
I outlined the candy corns with marker, lightly colored them in with pencils, and added an extremely cheesy note:
And my twelve year old was all: “Mom. That’s awful.”
Me: “I know! It’s so bad it’s great!”
Him: “No. There’s really, really funny and there’s so bad it’s funny but that’s not either one.”
So I snuck one into his lunchbox, too. That’ll teach him.
If you want your own candy corn printable, to make into banners or lunchbox notes or tags for baked goodies, you can get it on Laura Kelly’s blog. Also I just realized I got the order of my candy corn colors totally backward. Oy. I don’t think the kids minded, though.
