Back to School Party

This morning, my boys were complaining about their summer vacation almost being over (school starts July 27th for us) and how they were not looking forward to going back to school. I suggested a Back to School party to get them a little more excited! They of course thought it was a great idea (they love any reason to celebrate like their Mom). We are inviting the kids to a day of school & have created class schedules which include the following:
  1. Music: Guitar hero or Rock Band
  2. Art: Craft project TBD
  3. Science: Experiment TBD
  4. PE: Basketball Shootout
  5. Math: Sequence (fun strategy math game) or Yahtzee
  6. Lunch: Brown bag
  7. Home Education: decorate cupcakes or make your own sundaes

Of course, I will be playing the role of teacher, Mrs. Crabtree & will be handing out report cards at the end of our day! For favors, I am thinking fun school supplies like cool pencils, folders, markers, etc..

What do you think? I would love to hear any ideas/inspiration you may have!

Such a fun idea! I've actually been planning a Back To School Bunco party with my Mom's Group for the end August.

Have you seen the crayon pretzels over at Gourmet Mom On the Go? They are perfect for back to school & so easy to make! http://www.gourmetmomonthego.com/2008/08/runs-with-scissors-and-eats-crayons.html
