25+ Creative Back to School Ideas – crafts, teacher gifts and easy back to school treats to make with kids.
Hi friends! Are your kids back in school? We only have one week of summer break left. We’re spending the last week taking a quick trip to Santa Monica then preparing for back to school. If you follow me on Snapchat (username: pumpknaprincess) you may have noticed a few sneak peeks of some upcoming back to school projects. I’ve been working on teacher gifts and a few back to school ideas for the kids. I’ll have tutorials up in the next few days. In the meantime I thought I’d share with you some fun back to school ideas I’ve found around the web. These ideas are great for teacher gifts and first day of school treats!
