Fun Back to School Freebies and Ideas

My bloggy friend Heather over at Pirates and Princesses is quite the talent with party tables. Every so often, Heather does a TV spot for her local TV news and sometimes I'm lucky enough that she even chooses my ideas to share. Last week Heather shared this adorable Back to School table full of cute ideas including my pencil vase and apple Oreo pops. How much fun!

I love the vase filled with magnetic letters and numbers and those apple cupcakes are not only perfect for the theme but they're so simple to make, too.

Heather found these cupcake toppers over at Williams Sonoma. So cute!

There are so many great back to school ideas out there including some really easy and quick teacher gifts for those first days of school.


Home Confetti has a Teacher's Survival Kit idea perfect for those thoughtful but easy teacher gifts.

One Charming Party shares an easy teacher gift, too. "You're the high-lite of my day!" tags to attach to some new highlighter pens. How simple!

And what a cute idea Mallory from The Purplest Pecilan has with this Teacher's Survival Kit. 
I think any teacher would be thrilled to have this great gift.

This sweet printable idea from the girls at Eighteen25 would be a sweet treat for all sorts of occasions but  could be a fun little something for you child's lunch on his first day of school or even a fun little teacher treat.

I Heart Naptime has a wonderful set of free printable cards for Back to School from Sugar Tot Designs.

Love these "Meet and Greet Treats" from Dixie Delights, too. "Good Luck in Kindergarten Smartie Pants!" -- How adorable is that?

Another cute idea from Dixie Delights is this candy bar wrap, "Looking forward to a Sweet Year with you!"

Crissy's Crafts shares a tutorial on this "Stuck on You" teacher gift.

Gallamore West shares a simple but sweet back to school party to get her boys and their friends off to a great start in the school year.


Such great ideas out there. I hope you are all getting settled into those new classes with new teachers!

I love the Teacher Survival Kits! I love getting ready for a new school year but I dread going to the office supply stores because I know how pricey it's going to be. Any time a student comes in with extra supplies I get overly giddy!
