The first day of school is upon us, so let’s prepare. Here is a list of ideas for your child’s first day of school and a treat for the teacher.
I remember when the year my son realized that he was going to school soon and wanted to get “school stuff” for his bag. So we hopped in the car and I let him pick out all the “school stuff” he wanted. He was so excited to go to school with all the new items in his backpack and his fav lunch box. I remember loving to get new notebooks that I would eventually write and draw all over. Here is a few Back to School ideas for this coming year.
I love all the new styles of backpacks out today for the little ones and why not jazz it up with a personalized tag by Moritz Fine Designs. She shows you how to use online editing software to make them your own for your child’s bag.
We all take that 1st day of school photo and Passion for Savings has a boatload of ideas for you to choose from. There are so many, I couldn’t figure out which one was my favorite.
No matter the age, we all need a laugh every once in a while. How about finding a joke in your child’s lunch box to make his day happier. Check out Coupons are Great’s print out sheet.
And let’s not forget the teachers. Yes they always love the cute little gifts the kids bring them on the first day of school, but how about items they can use all year long. I love Wondermom Wannabe’s idea for the perfect Teachers Gift.
