It’s back-to-school time and somewhere between your giggly anticipation and sentimental tears, there’s a lot of preparation to be done. There are few items on that school supply list that you can get creative with, but I’ve come up with a fun way to customize your little one’s lunch pail.

This quick and easy DIY creates a personalized lunchbox with added chalkboard note area inside. And it only takes 10 minutes to make (see your chalkboard paint for drying times). It’s a fun, bright lunchbox that limits litter as you can now omit the paper note, and the customization reduces the chance of lunchbox mix-up. My little one, headed to Pre-K next week, walks around the house full of pride with her bright box and loves the surprise notes and pictures inside every time she opens it!

DIY Personalized Lunchbox

Supplies

Directions

  1. Tape off a large rectangle on the inside of the lunchbox lid.

  2. Paint the inside of the tape with your chalkboard paint. I used three coats, allowing each to dry for about 30 minutes before adding the next. Note that most chalkboard paints suggest a 24-hour curing period before writing on the surface.

  3. Choose the letters of your child’s name or cute message for the outside of the lunchbox.
  4. Use the hot glue to adhere the letters to the outside of the lunchbox.
  5. Once the paint is ready, remove the tape on the inside.
