Why should public schoolers have all the back to school fun??
I say that we, as homeschoolers, can have JUST as much fun making back to school memories!!
Look at some of these fun ideas I found! Make some new memories with your children this year as the rest of the world heads back to school!!
Back to School Memory Making
Take some back to school pictures!! Idea and printables found here!
Maybe the Back to School Fairy can come to your house too!! Ideas and photo from here. This blogger’s family has the fun tradition of the back-to-school-fairy coming the day before school starts each year. They hear the doorbell ring and run to see what they have been given! Maybe school supplies, a new outfit, some fun pencils! FUN!!
Give your students some of these as you start the new year! Idea and printable found here.
More picture ideas! !! Some of these won’t work for “at home” families…but many of them will! Some great ideas for photo-ops as school starts! Idea and printable checklist found here!
Start a back-to-school HUGE COOKIE tradition!! Idea, recipe, and picture from here.
Start making yearbooks for your kiddos! Idea and free printables from Becky Higgins! Maybe your kids could even help you make them! A fun, memory making project to do together!
Have welcome bags for your kids when they get up! It could be at their spot at the table or on the school table, if you use one! Idea and picture found here.
And, if all these ideas don’t tempt you to have some back to school fun, then by all means…
Have a NOT-BACK-TO-SCHOOL PARTY!!
As soon as the bus drives by on the public schoolers first day of school, wave good-bye to the bus, jump in your car and head out for ICE CREAM! or pancakes! or the pool!
