I have to say this party was a blast to plan. There are so many creative ideas out there for back to school!
Dani at Daninotes was kind enough to (again) design a custom invite for me!!! Thank you Dani!
I took black construction paper and chalk and made it look more like a "chalkboard" for placemats/name cards. Super easy!
scissor erasers!! orientaltrading.com
the kids decorated pencil cases with stickers and paint pens to hold their pencils from the exchange.
thought this was a creative idea... they are pink school erasers wrapped in wax paper to look like "candy!"

We also decided that it would be nice to make a gift to take our teacher on the first day of school. So, we put a bunch of highlighters in a treat bag, tied with ribbon, and added this super cute DIY tag found on OneCharmingParty.com
And what's a party without snacks?! These cute little apple cupcake toppers are from AppleBlossomBakery on Etsy. Such a great Etsy shop for cupcake toppers!
We also enjoyed "Scrabble Junior" Cheese-It crackers (to make words of course!), grapes, and these cheese stick pencils! Cheese sticks with ham as erasers, bugles and raisin pieces for the lead. I saw these on Family Fun's site and really wanted to try them. I have to admit, they are NOT as easy as they look! I ended up only making a few.
Only ELEVEN more days until kindergarten!
