Summer break has been fun but now it is Back to School time again. The kids are getting excited and enjoying collecting all the items that they will need. Parents are running here and there making sure the kids are outfitted and have all the necessary supplies together. However, beyond the typical gathering of things, it is a special time for our kids. And, while Back to School is exciting for most, it can be a little scary for some too! One of the ways you can ease their fear is with Back to School Traditions.

I have 12 Back to School traditions that will lighten the nerves before school.

Back to School traditions are a wonderful way to prepare for the new school year and make wonderful memories at the same time. You may already have some traditions that your family enjoys like these Simple Back to School Traditions we participate in.

We are loving this First Day of School Questionnaire from Smart Party Planning! It is a fun activity and perfect for primary children to complete before the school term starts. Combine it with a ‘first day of school’ photo and it becomes a treasured keepsake item for their memory book. Let them do one each year and someday when they are much older, you and them can look back at the fun memories!

A back to school party is an excellent tradition to get children thrilled for school.

It is a budget-friendly party (we already have enough expense, right?) that is not hard to put together, however, it is so much fun for our little ones and their friends! Just a simple little party to end the summer break and celebrate returning to school!
