Back to school is around the corner!
Getting prepared for your little ones to head back to school? Here are some of our favorite must haves to help you get ready! First, Tina showed me this great free Teacher’s favorite things printable by Life Sweet Life I used it last year and stuck on my fridge for the year.
First day of school is always a special picture day and we love all the free back to school printables you can get from Pinterest! Last Year I used these cute chalkboard Back to School by Yellow Bliss Road. Of course I used it – it’s Chalkboard!
I just love this Printable: When I grow up by Sweet C’s Designs
Tina uses a chalkboard easel for her daughters first day of school!
Sneak a little note in your children’s lunch box to make them smile! I wish my husband would sneak notes in my purse. I have used these cute lunch box notes by Honey Jumble
Have your child fill out this first day of school questionnaire by Giggles Galore. This is such a great idea for your children’s keepsake box.
Ugh what to do with the millions amount of artwork your child brings home. Really my refrigerator can only hold so much! So Tina introduced me to this treasure she found at Ikea! Unfortunately I know we all don’t have an Ikea around us but I found it on Amazon IKEA curtain wire. I have mine going down my hallway and I love It! I’m going to create a gallery wall above it with some of their artwork framed. .
What to do with all that school work and artwork you have left! I have my daughters currently in a folder that all year we saved her work and I just went through and saved all my favorites and got rid of the rest. Don’t be a pack rat – your children are not going to want these boxes of artwork one day! So this is why I love this next idea. We all love those photo books! I make mine on Shutterfly, and I was searching their photo books and they have a children’s Art Book. This is such a great idea! Take all the artwork you have from K-5th or sooner and create your own little Art Book. Another great benefit with Shutterfly is they save all your photo books you create. So if for any reason it gets destroyed or lost, you can reorder it! So when your child brings home 5 pages a day – start taking a picture of it with your cell and send it to your computer to be saved!
Alright enough about our kiddos. What about those teachers that have to put up with our kids all day! Well on my daughters school supply list it had our teachers wish list. So I grabbed all those goodies and a few of our own and made a little basket, and attached a little printable we created. Here is our free Back to school teacher printable
