30BackToSchoolProjectsToMake-JacquelynneSteves_

It’s almost time for the kids to go back to school! I always loved the beginning of the school year- shopping for school supplies, new shoes, and a new lunch bag! Even if you don’t have little kiddos going back to school (mine are grown, too!), I think you will find some really cute projects here that you will enjoy for your own use, or to give as gifts! And guess what- all of these projects are free 🙂

Journal Jar-Jacquelynne Steves

Journal Jar– I think this is a great way to teach kids about gratitude. I’ve heard of the beginning of the school year referred to as the “first New Year’s”- because it represents a new beginning, just like January 1. This can also be used as a fun “journaling” project to record events throughout the year.

 

ApplePieCupcake

Apple Pie Cupcakes (because everyone deserves a special snack after that first day of school!)

Here’s to a great “new” year!
