What to draw/write on kindergartner's lunchbox notes?

My son is 5 years old, in kindergarten, can read. I'd like to start leaving notes in his lunchbox for him to discover - I'm after ideas. I did some googling and found an industry of pre-printed lunchbox notes, but I want something more personal. After ideas for now, and for when he gets bigger as well. I was thinking: Pictures of monsters/trucks/stuff, silly sentences, jokes, Codes/Ciphers. What else? Any good resources on drawing simple monsters?

Just for Funsies ...

Whiteboard software

I'm looking for a specific type of program. Brainstorming/note taking/tag cloud-esque Windows software, preferably allowing the user to enter short pieces of text then drag them around and link or group phrases or words together.
