Back to School

Back to School is on my mind.  Here are some cute ideas that we have found to celebrate it and get the kids geared up for it too!

Meri Meri School Days Cupcake Decorating Kit from

  • Invite all of the neighborhood kids over.
  • Host party outside at picnic tables one last time before temps drop.
  • Serve fruit salad, bottled water, mini sandwiches, pretzels, and cupcakes. You could even put lunch items in brown paper sacks with each child's name on them.
  • School supplies, such as, paper, pencils, erasers, crayons & markers make great party favors.
  • Use pencil cases or boxes personalized with each child's name on them for party favor containers.

  • Use what you have for decor- chalkboard, school or school bus related toys, a globe, books, crayons, etc.  Use primary colors also.  Fabric with letters and/or numbers would be perfect for a table cover.
  • Have a table set up with all of the age-appropriate reading material that you can find and let the kids have a read-a-thon.
  • Decorate using school posters, and flash cards from the dollar store.
Here is a pencil that they CAN chew on!

  • Make pony bead key chains to hang on their backpacks for back to school.  Here is a link to find a great kit: Pony Bead Kit from Amazon.
