Inspiration: Back to School Goodies!

It's that time of year again!  By now the school shopping is completed and all of the excited students have met their teachers.  First day of the new school year is just around the corner for our neck of the woods. So, I've scoured the web for ideas on how to make going back fun and maybe help calm a few nerves.

Please take time to check out the blogs where I found these amazing photos. They are full of great ideas. Oh! And play this song while you are enjoying the photos. It's sure to get you in the back-to-school spirit!

For many, this will be their kid's first time going to school. I've noticed that it is usually harder for the parents than it is for the kids. I've figured out a way to prevent this. My son is never growing up. Period. Well, that and I'm thinking of homeschooling, but ya know.

After the lazy days of summer (yea right), it can be difficult to get back into that morning routine. Disney helps to relieve the morning madness with this checklist place mat.

I think I need one...

Of course, nothing helps with back to school like surprising your little students with a very special place setting. You could bid the kids good morning with this adorable setting or welcome them back home and talk about their first day over a sweet treat.

Here's a fun idea. Invite your child's school friends, old and new, for a back-to-school bash. Here is an example of a fun table setting for the party.  Check out the blogs for tons of cute ideas for these academic-inspired soirees.

What could be more fun than finding a sweet note in your lunch box? Especially one this cute.
