Calling all Bookworms for a Back to School Party

The carefree days of summer are coming to an end, but for school-aged kids a new adventure is just around the corner.  Back-to-school means new friends, new teachers and new memories!  Get your little ones excited about the new school year and celebrate with a Back to School Bash.

I set-up an old desk and bookshelf I borrowed from a friend to display the party treats and goodies.  I served a traditional “school lunch” with items that were easy to make and budget friendly.  We had PB&J sandwiches in decorated glassine bags, applesauce, fruit cups, milk, cookies, chocolate covered Oreos, and apple cake pops.  

Capture a “class photo” of guest at the party and take individual photos of each child representing what grade they will be entering.   I used the First Day of Kindergarten sign from the party package and put it into a decorative frame for each kid to pose with and create a memorable keepsake for mom.  I also made oversized flashcards with the numbers that represent their first day of school.

Our guest went home with a brown paper sack full of goodies to start the school year off right.  The bags were filled with an apple shaped notepad, crayons, and a sweet treat.  They were also given a composition notebook and bookmark to use as a journal throughout the year.

Whether your child is starting kindergarten or they are a seasoned school pro throwing a Back to School party is an A+ idea!
