little holiday notes and lunchbox jokes
Who doesn’t need to laugh a little more during this sometimes-way-too-stressful holiday season? I surely do–and there’s nothing like a super-corny, incredibly simple knock-knock joke to get me smiling and my kids rolling.
And I mean rolling. On the floor. In stitches.
So thanks to my dear friend with many great ideas who sent me her own set of Halloween jokes that she made for her two lucky girls, I felt inspired to follow suit and create some holiday lunchbox jokes for my own kiddos.
At least these jokes kind of make sense; the ones that Maddy, Owen, and Cora seem to be telling these days are totally off-the-wall.
- Holiday Notes and Lunchbox Jokes: These are simple but funny, and I found them all around the internet. I didn’t make them up, and they didn’t come from one source–they came from a bunch of places and I lost track (so, gulp, thanks for sharing!).
The Holiday Notes and Lunchbox Jokes are here to download as a pdf if you’d like to share ‘em with your little lovies. Enjoy!
The jokes are waaay basic, and I tried to choose ones that had relatively easy to read words so that my emerging readers could at least read them and tell them to their buddies at lunchtime.
I loved how my girlfriend’s Halloween jokes were formatted so that if you folded one side in, you had to read the joke on the left side and then open up the page to read the answer. So I tried to do that for most of my holiday jokes.
Using a small Foamie sticker, I folded the right half of the paper shut, and planted a holly leaf or tiny star right there to keep the answer a secret until the reader was ready!
And that’s it–just a little teeny holiday note that doubles as a lunchbox joke to get my kiddos laughing a bit and reading along the way.
It’s been so busy here, preparing for Maddy’s birthday and trying to get everything set for the holiday, and carry on with normal everyday activities that it’s almost laughable.
But I’m sure it’s the same for everyone everywhere.
So I’m just going to read a few of these notes to keep myself focused (ha!) and smiling.
