lunchbox noteAs much as I enjoy being back in the routine of the school year and the quiet, uninterrupted days while my kids are off learning, the fact is I miss them. I know they miss me too, and so that's why I love the idea of putting little surprises into their lunchboxes from time to time.

They don't have to be anything fancy at all, just something little to let them know that you're thinking of them. Something to give them a little reminder of the unconditional love and support waiting for them at home no matter what kind of day they're having. Here are 10 cute ways to send your kids a little love and a few laughs in their lunch.

Do you include surprises in your kids' lunchboxes?

Any ideas to add?
