Back to school is an exciting time in our house. To prepare for the new school year, the minnies and I make numerous pilgrimages to buy school supplies. There’s something so nice and special about new school supplies. Even as an adult, I love looking at a fresh box of 64 Crayola crayons.
I vividly remember buying old school Trapper Keepers, boxes of crayons, and Mr. Sketch smelly markers with my mother when I was in middle school. A few years, my mom would surprise me with personalized pencils; it was the start of my love of all things monogrammed and personalized.
The minnies and I are like kids in a candy store when we look for school supplies. At home, we have school supply drawers and art drawers for homework and projects.
Here’s some back to school eye candy for you…
Since I'm a teacher, back to school fun isn't just for my daughters. Setting up my classroom every year is such a fun task and the girls are wonderful helpers.
I'm constantly thinking of special little gifts to brighten someone's day and I love to give a small token to the girls' teacher for back to school. Personalized stickers, note cards, or stationery are excellent gifts that teachers can use in the classroom. Tiny Prints has a wonderful selection of cards, stickers, and room decor for back to school.
These stickers are a perfect way for the girls' teacher to label books in her library, don't you think?
Over the next few days, I'll share my own classroom with you. It's still a work in progress...
How do you prepare for back to school? Do you give a small gift to your child's teacher at the beginning of school?
