Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. November 2, 2011
If you a Surfnetkids fan on Facebook, you may have noticed that the Surfnetkids logo there is different from the logo on the Surfnetkids.com site. What’s with that you ask?
The reason is that for TWO YEARS (this is very embarrassing!!!) I have been working on launching a site redesign for Surfnetkids.com. Today, the paid members of the Surfnetkids Printables Club are the very first to see it. And (whew!) the very first member comment has been received, and it was a positive one (he he he!!!)
You can see a screenshot I posted on Facebook, and while you are there, you may as well click the “Like” button, okay?
See ya on the Net,

#2. Lunch Notes
by Barbara J. Feldman
Lunch Notes Printable (** for premium members only)
Although encouraging notes from home, folded into a sack lunch, are not a new phenomena, it is a trend that is exploding. In fact, some moms are buying cutesy stationary and pre-fab note cards to slip between the peanut butter sandwich and apple. Today’s sites, however, all offer free lunch note templates you can download and print yourself.
Buttoned Up: Free Printable Lunchbox Notes
Buttoned Up (started by three sisters and a best friend in 2004) is a site dedicated to living an organized life. On this page, they have two sets of lunch notes. The first is for kids seven and under, with simple text and big illustrations. The second is for kids eight and over. These use a wordier approach, and can be used to remind kids to take out the trash when they get home, or remind them of a babysitting obligation.
Cap Creations: Free Printable Lunchbox Note Cards
“Hope you are having a great day!” “Where did you get all that cuteness?” Cap Creations is an online jewelry store with an associated blog filled with all sorts of crafty, mommy things: these colorful lunch notes among them. To print them out, click on the image, then right-click to open in a new browser tab, and print. In addition to these notes, there are also lunchbox joke cards and bible verse notes. Look for those links (in green) right after the photograph showing these note cards cut and on a platter.
Chickabug: School Lunch Notes
Chickabug is an Etsy store featuring personalized paper and party goods. These free printable lunch notes are offered on their blog. There are four pages of them: two in boyish colors, and two in girly colors. Each pair includes one set with pre-printed messages, and the other completely wordless so you can craft your own message. “You make me smile when …” “I am proud of you because …”
