1st Day Of School Ideas

Here are some of my favorite ideas for the 1st Day of School:

Cute Smarties gift idea from It Is What It Is


Read a special book like The Kissing Hand


Snack idea from There’s A”1st” For Everthing


Make a cake for the 1st day of school like Mama’s A Mess! does


Take a picture of your child on their first day of school.

They can hold a sign saying their grade.

We like to take a picture by the front door every year


Pack an awesome lunch like this one from This Lunch Rox


Make a list of your child’s favorites of the moment.

If you do this every year you can see how they change over time.
