Craft Roundup: Chalkboard Notebook, School Photo Fun, More

Brighten up kids' first day back in class with a DIY project from cool blogs. Celebrate with a pool noodle pom pom shooter and dinosaur serving dish, too!

My nephews in Indiana are already back to school, if you can believe it! I've been enjoying first-day-of-school photos and updates on post-school activities. As your family continues to think about the important first day back, how will you make it extra special for your child this year? This week's roundup features a few fun ideas to make that exciting, and sometimes a bit nerve-wracking, first day a real blast.

 

Back to School Chalkboard Notebook

Your student will always know which subject notebook they need to grab when you can write, in chalk, the name on the front! Mom 4 Real shows you how to make this handy locker project.

 

First-Day Picture Ideas

Looking at Facebook during back-to-school week is always a treat, thanks to adorable first-day-of-school photos. The Suburban Mom has a roundup of some of her favorites from the start of last school year that can provide great inspiration in the coming weeks.

 

DIY Pool Noodle Pom Pom Shooter

Celebrate the end of a first day back to school with a real celebration. These pool noodle pom pom shooters are a great way to end day No. 1.

 

DIY Dinosaur Serving Dish

Once the poms poms have been flung, kick back with some dessert with a twist. Present cookies on a serving tray with a real bite – a big dinosaur bite!
