Back to School Party Ideas

Back to School Party Ideas -

Every year my sister and I throw a Back to School Party for our kids.  It started back in 2011 when my oldest daughter was starting Kindergarten.  It is now a family tradition that is fun for everyone!  Every year I try to think of something different.  While the theme is always “Back to School”, I try to play around with the colors and decor each year.  I find most of the supplies at The Dollar Tree or Target Dollar Spot.  There are a ton of free printables on Pinterest too.  Here are some ideas!


Ideas: print your own, chalkboard invites (white pencil on black paper), free printables on Pinterest
