I grew up with a teacher for a mother, so naturally I got to eavesdrop on her and her teacher friends. Rumor had it that teachers like getting chocolate and other unhealthy goodies over apples, but these cute crafts are far better than a healthy snack – probably still not as good as chocolate – and will add a bit of character to any classroom!
Puffy Paint Window Clings
I adore these little window clings! They would be a perfect back to school gift for your kiddos teacher, or if you’re a teacher of kiddos, a super fun beginning of the year project!
It’s about that time when the air gets a little crisper, and your kiddos get a little busier. That’s right, back to school! I’m headed off to my senior year of college in a couple of days, so this blog post was extra fun for me to do. (Cute organizational ideas anybody??) I hope you find some inspiration here to send your kiddos – or yourself – back to school in DIY style!

Create some back-to-school fun with these cute hair barrettes.
Washi tape is perfect for kids crafts because it’s so easy to work with, and it’s not too sticky so it can be removed and reapplied super easily if your little one makes a mistake! Check out these cute AND fun projects for your kiddos.
You can use these to hold all those magazines you haven’t had a chance to read yet or (should I even say it when it’s only August?) your kiddos school papers and notebooks *gasp*. You can use paper and line it with washi tape like our Think Crafts blogger did, or you can cover the whole thing in cool washi tape designs!

I waste so much money on buying my lunch at work. But it’s hard to feel motivated to make myself a tasty, healthy, “free” lunch when the bag I have to carry it to the office is a dirty old reusable shopping bag. Gross. Stop judging me, Seattleites who hang out in front of my office.
