We start school again on Wednesday. I know I say this every year, but I can’t believe that summer is already over! 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 Pinterest. 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. That’s the whole point of Pinterest- it’s all about inspiration! So 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. Enjoy!
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?
