Today my babies, 12 and 15, went back to school. I can't believe they only have few more back to school years with me. It seems only yesterday they really were my babies. As a former teacher back to school is a big deal for me and I try to make it special for my kids, too. This means a lot of time spent on the internet searching for just the right thing for our first day back. Since I found so many fun things to do, and I could never do them all, I thought I'd share some with you:
- LalyMom has 25 Fun First Day of School Traditions. I love these traditions. My problem is I love them so much my tradition is to start a new tradition each year.
- Parade offers 10 Easy and Creative Back To School Teacher Gift Ideas which I've bookmarked and will be using this school year. Especially since they provide all the printables for free!
- Sweet Stella is also offering free printables. My favorite is the Homework Planner to help keep their deadlines organized.
Tomorrow is the first day for all of us, so it's nighty-nite for me. If your kids went back to school recently, I'd love to hear what tips or tricks worked or you.
