Special ideas for back to school

With the start of school just around the corner, I thought I’d use the month of August to feature some fabulous school ideas! Here are some great ideas to start the school year on the right foot!

Whether it’s a snack, craft, or even just a picture, capturing these memories are priceless-especially the first day!

Treat to share with friends-Homemade Pencil

Remember everything about your little ones on their first day-First Day of School Questionnaire

Pencil Cake

I LOVE this idea of using a chalkboard to document a child’s life with each start of a school year-First Day Sign

A fun bouquet for a new teacher

Another fun first day sign

My oldest guy is starting pre-school this year (sniff, sniff), so I’m loving these ideas for making the start of school special. You may also want to consider making a special breakfast or even a full tablescape of celebration.

What are your favorite school year traditions? Have you found any pins to kick off the first walk to the bus? We’d love to hear from you!
