Making these DIY Lunchbox Scratch Off Messages is the perfect way to tell your kid a secret message, a joke, or even words of encouragement in a unique and FUN way! It’s a great way to add a little zest to their Dole Mixations cup in their lunchbox. I’m wishing this was an option when I was a kid! The only thing I got was a PB&J sandwich with my mom’s perfume all over it (she never quite got the memo that she should put her perfume on AFTER she made my lunch, not before).
