Back to School Celebration

You may not be celebrating this event, but maybe a little celebration will help your kids get back into the school mode. Don’t forget to ask your teacher if nuts are allowed in the classroom!

Crafts & Fun:

Crafts: use clay to make little locker buddy creatures or pretty necklaces to wear to the first day of school, make this cool pencil can, origami finger puppets, roll-up pencil kit, marbleized pencils, pipe cleaner creatures, a pencil topper to make doing homework more fun, or make this scary backpack monster!

Fun: give the kids plenty of time to run around a play tag or have the party at a park where they can play on playground equipment and get the sillies out.

Food:

Snack: gorp, honey nut balls, mini flatbread pizza, sweet potato chips, earth day bars, animal chips, date nut bars, fruit and nut treats.

Lunch: blt wraps, ham & cheese quesadillas, alphabet pasta salad, lunch box taco salad, super salad pita, sub sandwich, sandwich on a stick.

Dessert: apple cupcakes, pencil cake, school bus cake, blackboard cupcake, school bus cupcake.

Decorations:

Bright colors are a great way to decorate, have school themed items like school buses, play ground pictures and even “lunch boxes” for the kids to eat from.

Grab-bags:

Let the kids walk away with fond memories and some fun things to help them on their first day back like pencils, colored pencils, a little sharpener, a small calculator, cool mini erasers, a coloring book or stamps.

I hope your kids are ready for back to school, having a fun party might help them get in the mood!  I’d love to hear your back to school stories too!
