PARTY Back To School Ideas
Here are some super fun back to school ideas for hosting a back to school party! How fun right? The first one is my favorite, and also the one I threw for my daughter, Lilly (pictured), when she was starting the 3rd grade. It was a book exchange party to get all of the kiddos excited about reading! The idea was everyone brought three books and went home with three new books. You will have to head over there to get all of the details, plus the free printables that go along with the party. Enjoy the rest of these back to school ideas!!
LUNCH Back To School Ideas
Here are tons of back to school lunch ideas! I do want to stress that now that I have rebranded to Clean Living Clean Eating we eat healthy school lunches. These ideas were rounded up before the significant switch in our lives, but several of these ideas are healthy kids school lunches. There are also several sets of free lunch box note printables included in these links! So be sure to check them out.
TEACHER’S GIFTS Back To School Ideas
Do send teacher’s gifts with your kiddos for the first day of school? When my kids are in grades with only one or two teachers, I send a cute back to school teacher’s gift. BUT when they get to middle school and have 7 teachers, I wait until Christmas and then do something smaller for all of them. Here are some cute back to school ideas for teacher gifts.
KID’S PICTURE Back to School Ideas
My husband normally decks out a chalkboard for our girls to hold for their first day of school pictures. BUT I love these back to school picture ideas below, and the free printables for grades look way easier than what he usually does. Such cute picture back to school ideas…
