First Day of School Kickoff

I have fond memories of the first day of school.  New clothes, a new backpack, my parents making us a special breakfast, and my aunt coming over to wish us off on the bus.

This year, two nieces of ours are starting kindergarden! How time flies.  To make it as special as I remember it, I put together little treat bags for their first day. They included a notebook, stickers, markers, name tags, a few healthy snacks, bracelets and some other goodies.

Here are some other cute ideas to give to the kids as they start off the school year.

And of course we can't forget the teachers. We all know they spend oodles of money on things they need but don't get supplemented for (supplies, books, crafts, cleaning items, stickers, etc.). Here are some cute ideas to gift to that special teacher.

What a wonderful idea! I always loved the first day of school too!
I am going to steal this idea and tuck it away for when I have little ones! :)
You are a wonderful aunt!
