Happiness is Homemade Party #492
Creatively Beth is kicking our theme of this week with this adorable Clay Pot Apple. A fun gift idea as we start thinking Back to school.
A handmade flowerpot apple is a gift that you can make with your kiddos and will hold a special place in your Teachers’ hearts for years to come. Whether it’s back to school, teacher appreciation, or just a surprise thank you, this easy craft can be filled with all the special treats!
Next up, Premeditated Leftovers is sharing the perfect Fall/AKA Back to school Oreo treat. With the arrival of fall comes apple season! These Apple Core Chocolate Covered Oreos are a fun way to jazz up an Oreo cookie. They are an easy treat to make for parties and special events.
Can we have a BTS Theme without talking lunches? I don’t think so and Must Have Mom has us covered.
Cold lunches can get boring in a hurry, but not with these healthy make ahead lunches for back to school. I’ll give you my favorite quick and easy tips to pack a healthy lunch every day. The best part? You can prep these on Sunday and your child can pack their own healthy lunch with my guided system!
Sharing something a little different, Organized Motherhood is sharing some great tips and tricks for getting out of the house on time. Start the day off right with a great morning routine for school. Here’s how to get ready for the day ahead, how to design a morning routine that works for your family, and how to implement better routines for moms to last through the school year.
and finally we have Simple Everyday Mom sharing fun ideas to ease the worry and fear some of our littles feel.
Start off the school year with a fun craft to get them excited to learn while having fun. This pencil name craft is a good one to start with since they will need to know how to spell their name once they’re in school.
Make the start of the school year exciting with some fun back to school activities!
