Fun Back-to-School Ideas from The Scoop

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Back to School IdeasThanks again to everyone who linked up with us at The Scoop this week to share all of your wonderfully creative ideas!  If you hurry, you can still get in on all the fun…and you will also want to head over for some fabulous inspiration! This week I saw lots of great ways to celebrate the beginning of the new school year!

backtoschoolwreath I love this festive back-to-school wreath from Atop Serenity Hill! Wouldn't it be cute on an elementary school teacher's classroom door?

home.made. Back to School Apple Wreath_thumb[2]Home.Made. repurposed an old clock and a book to make this cute back-to-school apple wreath!

ABC_thumb7Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie created a special back-to-school mantel starring chalkboards and vintage books. She always celebrates every occasion with fun changes in her home!

Suzy at Worthing Court shared some inspiration for turning a portion of her cute playroom into a homework area...great idea!

August 2013 072 copy_thumbDixie Delights dressed up an apple with a free printable to create this cute "meet the teacher" gift!

Back-to-school-teacher-giftAnd here's another idea for a back-to-school teacher gift from The Happy Scraps! As a retired teacher who had to buy most of her own supplies, I can tell you that this one will be appreciated!

August 2013 077 copy_thumbHere's an idea that really "rocks!" (Sorry! I couldn't resist!) Dixie Delights created some fun printables that turn Pop Rocks into a cute first day of school send-off for the kids!

lunch box notes-page-001I especially loved this printable from My Heart Lives Here...little notes to slip into the lunchbox! She also has some good suggestions to help ease the transition for children headed to kindergarten or pre-school.

Uniquely Undone treated us to a complete set of  first day of school photo props...from kindergarten all the way to 12th grade!

cs1Great minds think alike as proven by these back-to-school photo props from Glamorous Bride! These ladies will have the most organized photo books ever!

  2. Debbie, you do a stellar job of organizing and featuring these themed posts. This is a fantastic idea! The Scoop girls really scored when they added you to their team.
    Like you, I think the Sharpie pens will be a welcomed gift!

  3. Back to school teacher gift? I just retired from 30 years of teaching and I never got one of those! Ah, but I taught high school and I guess bringing your teacher a gift just wouldn't have been very cool. . .LOL!
