35 Back to School Crafts, Gifts and Project Ideas

Good morning!  I can’t believe it’s back-to-school time already, but it sounds like most of you send your kiddos back next week already (and I hear some schools are already in session this week)!  As much as I get sad to see the end of the summer go, though, I have to say, it’s wonderful to get everyone back into a routine.  What kinds of things are you doing to prepare for going back to school?  Getting organized?  Putting together a teacher gift?  Any crafting?  Well, today Nancy and I have rounded up 35 back-to-school tips, projects, and ideas to help get everyone excited about starting the new school year.  Check them out!

    Thanks for including my Ball jar pencil holder! This is a great collection. Guess I’ll have to save them for next year, since we’ve been back to school since the 14th! :)
