These back to school craft ideas are so much fun! It feels like we just started summer vacation, but school will be here in no time! OK, I think I might have a little more back to school cheer than most people… but I love this time of year! We’ve already started our back to school clothes shopping. And then after back to school, we can start thinking about Halloween. And Thanksgiving. And then… wait for it… Christmas! Yup, you’re totally thinking I’m a crazy person, but I’m okay with that.
When I was in elementary school, my mom would take my sister and I to the fabric store during the last week of summer vacation and she’d let us choose any fabric we wanted. And every single year that I can remember, she’d make us our own custom pencil case, any style that we could think of. It was the 1980’s, so the colours were bright and neon with bold patterns, and I swear it was my favourite part of going back to school.
If you ever want to start a new back to school tradition with your kids, this list is a great place to get some inspiration! I absolutely love the 1st Day of School picture frame for those first day photos! And how amazing would it be to make a brand new lunch bag with your kids every year? Or you know, just once, because let’s face it… sewing is a lot of work.
Or maybe your kids are a little sad that summer is over and they need a little bit of craftspiration to give them some back to school spirit? Or maybe they want to make little welcome back gift bags for their friends? Ack! I just can’t choose! There are just so many fun back to school craft ideas!
