Fun Back to School Ideas

Can you believe it’s already that time again?  That’s right – Back to School is already upon us.  Some kids are already returning while others are getting ready in just a few weeks.

Within Reach Learning Center believes that going back to school should be a positive experience.  Here are some great ideas from Lalymom that are sure to make going back to school fun and exciting for your whole family!

Take a Great First Day of School Photo.  What better way to capture all those precious “one year older” moments than with a great back to school picture!  One great idea is  framing a picture from the previous year and having your child pose with it to see their growth.  You can also photograph them leaving the house, getting on the bus, or walking up the sidewalk to school.  Let you kids get involved by decorating the frames.  Whatever photo you choose you are sure to create some great memories!

Have fun with food.  Help create excitement about going back to school by including fun items in your child’s lunch.  Let them pick out some of their favs to include in their first day lunch or even help you make lunch the night before.  Another great idea is to have a family BBQ the night before.  This is a great time to discuss goals for the school year, alleviate first day jitters, or just have some good old family fun before the stress of the new year sets in.

Make a fun craft together.  What better way to create a fun buzz about going back to school than by doing a fun activity together!  One idea that Within Reach loves is creating a back to school advent calendar.  You can include a fun activity to do each day to help get ready for school.  This will also create excitement rather than nerves about the first day because kids will get excited about the countdown.

Within Reach Learning Center would love to hear how you celebrate the beginning of the school year with you kids.  We hope that this list provides you with some inspiration for new traditions.

Happy Back to School!
