Free Printable Easter Lunchbox Jokes



Do your kids love silly little jokes? Mine do! The little joke books in the class library are always checked out and my girls absolutely love it when I tuck jokes in with lunchboxes.

These are also fun to stuff inside Easter eggs or Easter baskets.

So made a sheet of free printable lunchbox jokes for kids that you can print out and get a smile from your child.

You can print these at home or if you prefer to send them out to Staples or Costco the price is usually $.50-.75 to have the entire sheet printed.

I hope your kids get as big of a kick out of these as mine do.
