We start school again next week. I know I say this every year, but I can’t believe that summer is already over! Time to pull out all the back to school ideas.
Now, I know that Pinterest is full of wonderful and creative back to school ideas that might make you feel like a failure as a parent. But that’s not the point, really!
NO ONE does everything that’s on the internet. I don’t even do things like this every year. But once in a while, I do one thing from the many great ideas on my Pinterest boards.
For example, I think the idea of using a Lazy Susan on the table for your school supplies is genius. Just about every homeschool parent I know uses the dining room table for schoolwork.
Don’t feel bad if you aren’t creating photo props for the first day of school, or doing themed lunches or designing a homework station for the year. It’s OK. Really, it is.
But maybe there’s something from this list that you actually want to do and will serve a useful purpose in your home. Perhaps you’ll see an idea that just inspires you to try something you’ve been thinking about.
This is an easy back to school gift for your child’s teacher! You can fill it up with pencils or other school supplies or even use it as a vase and fill it with colorful flowers. Get the tutorial and two different free printables here!
I really love the apple cupcakes. I might have to make those this fall just for fun. 🙂 I hope you found something you love! What kind of back to school traditions does your family have? Read this post about Back to School Traditions that are popular in other countries.
