21 best back to school ideas

Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom and Merry Monday #256. Back to school season is in full swing. I love to see all the fun back to school pictures on facebook, with the kiddos holding chalk board signs with their grade and favorite things.

That’s one of the fun parts of back to school. But what about the early mornings trying to get back into a routine and get the kids to school on time? 

Never mind the struggle with nightly homework, dinner and after school activities. It’s a whirlwind!

Take a look at these amazing back to school recipes, printables and organization tips. I wish these were available when my kids were in school!

This was such a comprehensive list and such a great one! Putting all those cute signs aside (where oh where were bloggers when my kids were little!), I loved the Bento lunch options and the BTS interview.
