DIY Gift Idea // Chalkboard Lunchbox

Have a little one going back to school? Make sure your kids know just how special they are every single day of the year by making them an easy DIY Chalkboard Lunchbox.

Back to School Lunchbox

Step 1:  Purchase a cute tin lunchbox (we love these Fender finds from amazon)

Step 2: Get Chalkboard Paint and Sponge Brushes

Step 3: Cover the edges of the tin box with painters tape and begin to paint the top section with the chalkboard tape. 2 coasts works best. Let dry in between coats and then overnight.

Step 4: Write a sweet note each morning to your little one, change it depending on the day!

Step 5: Start adding in some healthy elements.  Suprise them with a hidden  banana note.  Use a tack to write the note in the skin and by the time it’s lunchtime it will “magically” appear
