10 Back to School Ideas

Can you believe summer is almost done?! For some of you, school has already started and for others it will begin sooner than you know it! School for us starts on August 8th, and I will have a 3rd grader and a Kindergartner- I can’t believe it! I have had so much fun this summer, but it has gone way too fast!  Today I wanted to share some Back to School ideas to help spark some creativity as we prepare to send our kiddos back to the classroom!

1. Free printable lunch tags from Alphamom
2. Handmade lunch tote from Sew News

3. Teacher treats candy bar wrapper from Stampers Dream Blog
4. Rolo pencil treats from Blackberry Vine

5. Giant embellished clips for the teacher from Taylored Expressions
6. Kids organization from The Idea Room

…and many more ideas including the pencil tin, organization system, edible crayons and apple treats in the Somewhat Simple archives!
