Lunch Box Joke Chalk Marker

These lunch box jokes have become the talk of the lunchroom.

I started writing notes in the girls' lunchboxes when they were in preschool (even wrote about it a couple years ago here).  When Taylor learned to read, I started writing little jokes.  Now, 3 years later, I still write a joke… everyday.  Apparently their boxes get passed around the table because everyone wants to read the joke of the day.

A few months ago, I heard about a new brand of chalk markers by Crafty Croc.  I ordered a set and have been so happy with the way they work!  The craft store brand I had been purchasing would dry out and not write well.  These Crafty Croc Chalk Markers have worked great. They dry really fast which helps since I'm writing the joke and packing their lunch in the mornings before they walk out the door.  The other brand would smear and make the joke hard to read.

I've had a lot of people ask about where I got the sandwich containers with the chalkboard surface.  It's actually a really easy “hack”.  I purchased these Sistema Sandwich Containers and added a square of chalkboard vinyl.  I wash these on the top rack of the dishwasher and have never had a problem with the vinyl coming off.  Just cut the vinyl sheet to fit on the top of the sandwich container and that's it!


Now for the jokes… I'll admit… I'm not that funny.  I don't come up with the jokes on my own.  Remember, I do all of this as the girls are walking out the door for school so no time to be creative!  Plus, they are quick to let me know if I have repeated a joke.  They remember jokes from 2 years ago so I am constantly looking for new jokes.

I have used several joke books over the years.  This one is my current favorite.  The majority are ones that a 1st and 3rd grader will “get”.  Plus, they are not the same jokes that you see all over the internet.

Helpful Tip:  I use the magic eraser from the Dollar Tree to erase the chalk marker before putting the sandwich boxes in the dishwasher.
