It's a GREAT TIME to plan those BACK TO SCHOOL ACTIVITIES! And with the Amanda's Parties To Go FREE BACK TO SCHOOL PRINTABLE SET, you'll have so much fun while you are at it. This set is huge and packed full of so many adorable printable files. Use the CUPCAKE TOPPERS to make some classroom treats for the first day of school, use the treat bag toppers to dress up your child's school lunch, and be sure to use the 1ST DAY OF SCHOOL prints for your child's 1st day of school photos. I hope you will love this photos from Cris McGrath of Crissy's Crafts who styled this adorable Back to School party using the printables.
Cris tells us more about her party styling.....
"Back to School is always an exciting time for my children. We have a "Mom and Me Day" to purchase the school supplies, special first day outfit, new shoes, new lunch bag and backpack.
This year is extra special since my son, Joey, will start Pre-K!! I want to celebrate Joey's milestone by having a Welcome/Back to School Party.
For this party, I tried to keep the snacks simple but creative. For the sweet table, we enjoyed some erasers (Stacker Mallows), pencils (twisters), chalk (marshmallow confetti), ABC chocolate letters, 123 chocolate numbers, bookworm cupcakes with the cutest cupcake toppers ever from Lynlee's Petite Cakes, gum ball apples, apple cake pops and adorable apple sugar cookies from Sugar on Top.
Before they hit the sweet table, the children munched on apple shaped whole wheat ham and cheese sandwiches, bookworm grapes and apple juice. I set up the goodies on my daughter's desk and used my son's vintage school desk to display some of their treats that they took home.
For the backdrop, I used a black bulletin board paper, embellished with a polka dot trimmer and the Back to School banner from the FREE Back to School printable. As favors, the youngest took home a metal school box from Lunchboxes.com full of goodies. The older children received a lunch sack from Jill Celebrations full of school supplies.
Thanks to Jill Celebration's chalk place mats, the kids played tic-tac-toe while munching on their snacks. What a fun and creative idea!
I also used the FREE Back to School printable to embellish their lunch boxes, snack bags, mason jars, goodie bags, and popcorn container.
One of my favorite DIY projects for this party is the crayon cupcake stand using crayons and toilet paper roll! So easy to make and definitely made the cupcakes stand out!
The kids had a ball playing memory game and back to school bingo, too. A fun way to kick of the school year! "
