Make this Spring festive and fun by creating & sharing Earth Day lunch box jokes for kids (and adults too)!
Spring has sprung, which means there are a lot of fun upcoming kid-friendly holidays to celebrate!
In April (a top contender for “My Favorite Month”) we’ve got…
April Fool’s, Easter, & Earth Day
Then comes May with May Day, Cinco de Mayo & Mother’s Day (my personal fave!)
I mean seriously, there’s so much to celebrate it’s hard to know where to begin!
Although my go-to method of honoring any holiday is usually with some sort of Scavenger Hunt, I thought I would branch out this Spring with some new fun printables.
And since I’m one of those totally cheezy moms who’s trying her best to not forget to take life a little less seriously, and I’m a BIG FAN of corny jokes, I decided to celebrate Earth Day with some lunch box jokes with the hope of making my kids laugh!
Psst – *SIDE NOTE * – if you are wanting to see the super fun St. Patricks Day treasure hunt I created, you can read all about it here.
And here’s my Festive Easter Scavenger Hunt – just in case they are a huge hit at your house too!!
Okay, now back to the original programming…lunch box jokes!
In my efforts to branch out a bit away from the perpetual scavenger hunt, this year I decided to make some lunch box notes and jokes to make Earth Day a more special occasion…
but truly you can use them any time throughout the Spring!
Since I am a former Kindergarten teacher who has happened to have read a silly little kid joke book or two over the years, I narrowed down my favorite Earth Day jokes to these 24 that will surely tickle your funny bone (or at the very least bring a smile to your face!).
And being the sharing and caring blogging buddy that I am, I’ve got a free set of jokes for kids to share with you in this blog post!
That means half (or maybe more) of the work is already done for you! Lucky you!
So let me show you exactly how to use this collection of Spring lunch box jokes to make your kids’ lunches so much more fun for Earth Day (or any day!)
Keep in mind that you can use this idea for children during their school day or even adults during their work…doesn’t everyone love a little surprise lunch box note no matter what age?
How to Create Spring Lunchbox Jokes for Earth Day

(please check your spam folder if your free printables don’t arrive in your inbox within a couple of minutes and remember these are for personal use only and you’ll be added to my subscriber list!)
2. Print the Earth Day Lunch Box Jokes
Next, simply print the PDF lunch box joke pages on either white paper or cardstock.
Mom Tip #1 – I recommend using thicker paper or white cardstock to print these jokes so they are a bit sturdier and will hold up better inside the lunch box.
Also using a color printer makes a HUGE difference in making the notes a bit more vibrant and colorful.
3. Cut the Earth Day Lunch Box Jokes
Next, with a pair of scissors, cut on the gray dotted line to make 24 smaller notes with one joke on each card.
4. Affix the Earth Day Lunch Box Jokes
Prior to the morning of packing the lunches (so I wouldn’t wait for the last minute!), simply select which jokes you will use in your kids’ lunch boxes and use tape to affix each funny note to various food items…
or if that’s too much work for you ultra-busy parents, you can just have them free-floating in their lunch! No tape necessary!
Also, you don’t have to use all of the jokes on the same day! You can spread them out and have a whole week (or longer) of funny jokes to make your son or daughter laugh!
5. A Sampling of the Earth Day Jokes
Wondering what some of these HILARIOUS Earth Day Jokes are on these free printables?
