Back to School Ideas

It’s that time of the year again. The time when our little ones go back to school, or like mine are beginning Kindergarten. It’s a bitter sweet time but there’s a lot of fun things you can do to make this time extra special! Here a few Back to School Ideas for you and your little ones.
Lauren McKinsey Lunch Box Notes
I have these lunch box notes and I absolutely LOVE them, this is such a cute and easy way to make your little ones feel extra special. I always put love notes in my boys’ lunch boxes and it makes them so happy!
Back to School Photos Printables, Telissa from Sugar Tots Design

How perfect are these printables, you print and cut out and then make them into a sign to take your child’s picture on the first day of school. I am totally doing this for my little ones first day of Kindergarten.

Love Your Lunch Box PDF Pattern
How clever is this, Gingercake sells a PDF pattern for you to make your own lunchbox! Too cute!
Apple umbrella and Cloud sandwich lunch
This lunch would make any child smile, how sweet is this, an umbrella made from an apple!
Refrigerator Snack Station
When the little ones come home from school starving, which they will, you will be all set with this great snack station filled with healthy snack options.
Mini Crayon Cake
Crayon Wreath
What better way to build up anticipation than to display this colorful crayon wreath on the front door on the days leading to the big first day of school!

I hope that you enjoyed these Back To School ideas. So pack the healthy lunches, drop a sweet note in their lunchbox, take that special picture, hold back the tears until after you drop them off! Then when they get home be ready with a special treat or snack and lots of kisses to welcome them back!

    These are all amazing ideas! Love it.

    I have a daughter with severe food allergies (peanut/tree nut). I’ve had to get creative with her lunches. Last school year I started taking daily photos on her blog thinking it would help mom’s that struggle with picky eaters and school lunches. So now I have a section on my blog labeled “Packed With Love” where I share photos, tips and lunch organizing ideas. Hope you can stop by:)

      Hi Heidy! Both my boys have severe food allergies as well. I make most of their food myself. Bushel & Peck, the shop on this post that made the cute bus tags sells these amazing bracelets and lunch bags for kids with food allergies. Very cute and helpful. Hope you come check my blog out sometime I make a lot of allergen free goodies!

        Thanks for the mention, Dorangela!  Having grown up with food allergies myself…I wanted to make sure our shop catered to those kids & worried Moms out there.  The bracelets are purty darn cute too, if I do say so myself.  We've got all the local kids with allergies wearing them here in Philly!
