In a perfect world your kids would count down to the end of summer and face the start of a new school year with glee. In the real world it may take a little more convincing that going back to school is a good thing. Here are some ideas for helping kids get excited about the new school year.
• Make this fun school supply cake. Gather the back-to-school supplies and make this non-edible cake with the kids. They’ll be excited to rip into it to take their first stab at homework.
• Bake the kids a real cake. When the kids come home from school, surprise them with a freshly baked vanilla bean cake with simple buttercream frosting.
• Get the kids involved with meal prep with kid-friendly snacks.
• Personalize school supplies with these DIY stamped pencils. Because sometimes having your name stamped on school supplies is all you need to feel special.
