As we head into August, our thoughts slowly turn from pool days to pencils. Whether you are heading back to school in person, starting a year of online learning, or prepping for a new homeschool year, this is the time to think about Back to School. 

No matter what going "back to school" looks like for your family, I have some fun ways you can celebrate this season as part of our monthly Family Dinner Book Club. Keep reading to learn more and grab your free printable activity guide too!

5 Ways to Celebrate Back to School

First Day of School Survey

One of our favorite traditions is filling out our "All About Me on the First Day of School" surveys. We've continued this every year even as we've transitioned to homeschool, and it's so much fun to see how my kids have grown and changed. Grab your free printable set here.

Make a Set of Worry Hearts

Worry hearts are a super sweet way to help ease those back to school jitters. Inspired by the set of worry dolls my mom gave me before I went to summer camp for the first time, this simple craft will help your kids feel your love even when you're not there. See the tutorial.

Prep Your Lunch Box Notes

When my kids were in public school, they loved finding little notes from me in their lunch box every day. Now that they are homeschooled, I still sneak them into unexpected places for a fun surprise. See how to make this super cute lunch box note holder here and find all our printable lunch box notes here.

Set Up Your Learning Space

Whether you're setting up a homeschool room, virtual learning space, or a homework station, giving your kids a dedicated area for school things is a must. Get my best tips for setting up a learning space at home here.

Craft Fun School Supplies

Let's be honest. New school supplies are the BEST part of back to school. Go beyond the traditional list and craft some fun personalized school supplies to get ready for the new year. Get great ideas here.
