Back-to-School Dinner

Make the night before the first day of school a special family tradition!

Back to school already??!! Summer always goes by in a flash and before you know it the stores are full of markers, crayons, and pencils and it's time to start another school year.  Start this year off right with a family celebration! We've come up with an unforgettable back-to-school tradtion that your family is sure to remember.

Back-to-School Tradition
Life can get SO busy and making time for a fun family dinner can be difficult.  Here's your chance! Take a break from filling backpacks full of supplies or setting out clothes for the first day and take a moment to reflect on the upcoming year as a family. With the help of our talented designer Crystal of A Well Feathered Nest {this girl has some serious skills!!}  we've created some amazing free printables to make your back-to-school dinner a success!

The Menu

Mom, are you ready for this?! This is no ordinary invitation.  Each child gets to put in a request for a dinner item and a dessert item.  It might be wise, depending on how many back-to-school kids are at your table, for you to pick one request from each child.  The kids will love seeing their request making a statement on the dinner table. This might be the most interesting dinner you have all year!

Back To School Dinner Menu

Back to School Interview

Take a moment before the meal and have each child fill out this cute back to school interview.  It's amazing how much kids change in one year.  Sometimes I wish I could stop time and keep them small for a little longer.  Years from now, this little paper will be a family treasure.

 

 Back To School Interview

Personal Bookmark

Before dinner, take a minute to write a personal note to each child on this printable bookmark.  Once your note is done, fold in half and glue together.  Now your child has a little piece of encouragement and love with them every day.  If you'd like, you could laminate the bookmark (I LOVE this laminator in case you're looking for one), punch a hole in the top, and add a ribbon.

Taking a moment to really connect as a family before the rush and business of the first day of school is so important.  Enjoy this time together and don't forget your free printables!

Be Your #Selfie - Date Night

This creative date night is low pressure and so, so much fun! Go on a selfie date night scavenger hunt with another couple and see who can get the most off the list! Our beautiful invites, list, and extra treat printables were made by the ever impressive, Kensie Kate! {You have to go check her out. Her designs are sure to make you smile!} 

Selfie Scavenger Hunt with FREE Printables

image_url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/wp-content/uploads/But-First-Lets-Take-a-Selfie.jpg" description="Adorable selfie date night with FREE pintables! Can't wait to try! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

This date was a cinch to prep! 

1) Print the adorable printables {found at the bottom of this page} and send those invites for your selfie date night! I love the little camera! To get perfect rounded corners I use a corner punch. It's easy and will give the classic look.

Selfie Scavenger Hunt With Invitations

2) Get that duck-face ready ;) and hit the town with your honey and best couple friends. Don't forget to create your own original hashtag to keep up with each other's silly selfies throughout the night. {Oh! And add our hashtag: #datelikeadiva so we can see your cute faces!}

But First Let's Take a Selfie Date with your Sweetie

3) Set up a time to meet back together at your favorite place for a treat. One of the selfies on the list is a "Shake Selfie" so if you have a fabulous place for milkshakes, go there! Remind the other team that they don't have to get all of the selfies, just as many as you can in the prescribed time. {We recommend an hour of selfie-ing before meeting up} Kensie Kate also made some adorable printables if you want to make treats of your own. I made some rice krispie treats, wrapped them in cling-wrap, then taped the cute printables on the front to get a little "camera" for each participant. 

Selfie Treats and Certificates with Free Printables

4) Scroll through your hashtag if you are using social media, or just the camera rolls if you don't want your boss to see your "Sour Face Selfie" that just happens to look a lot like him...

Selfie Scavenger Hunt List with Invitations

5) Award your winners! We included two certificates just in case you subscribe to the "Everyone's a winner" philosophy ;)

Get your FREE But First, Let's Take a Selfie printables HERE!

And that's all, folks! Super fast, fun, creative date night! If you loved this group date, you have to try Cami's Mall Scavenger Hunt Date Night or Becca H.'s Service Scavenger Hunt Group Date.

Your free printable August Love Calendar is here! 

And it's FULL of fun and flirty romance tips to help reconnect you with your spouse and strengthen your marriage this month!

A month of intentionally loving your spouse
 

[pinit count="horizontal" always-show-count="1"
url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=64870"
image_url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/wp-content/uploads/Free-August-2015-Love-Calendar.png" description="Your FREE August 2015 LOVE calendar is here.  Are you ready for a whole month of intentionally loving your spouse?  Just print it off and complete the little romance tip each day! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

Yep, we promised it would be coming and here it is!  Are you ready for another month of intentionally loving your spouse?

Have any suggestions for future romance calendars?  We'd LOVE to hear in the comments!!  

And if you're new to our Love Calendars then...

Here's How It Works

Just download the darling calendar, designed by the lovely Erin with Strawberry Mommycakes. Jennafer at Oh Creative One works with us to update it each month {Isn’t it fun?! Jennafer and Erin can seriously create anything we envision. Check out Jennafer's and Erin's work!}

Thanks to a lovely readers suggestion, we have created 3 calendars, one for the both of you, one for just him, and one for just her.

In the Love Calendar pack you will find:

  • Page 1 - Detailed instructions on how to use the calendars.
  • Page 2 - Completely Filled Out Calendar {If you don't care for surprises, this is the calendar for the two of you.}
  • Page 3 - Calendar for HIS Eyes Only {He will want to print this off and look at each odd day to see what to do for his sweetie.}
  • Page 4- Calendar For HER Eyes Only (She will want to print this off and look at each even day to see what to do for her sweetie.)

Then, simply check it every day for your little “love assignment.” It might be a small act of service to do for your spouse, a love note to write, or a quick activity to do together.

Odd days are designated for the hubby and even days are for the wife. The husband is in charge of the days highlighted and the wife is in charge of the days in white. When it’s your day, you will either serve your spouse, plan date night, or grab any needed printables. You’re welcome!

 We’ve even included great date night ideas for each Friday night, making it easy to plan ahead for date night each week! {Don’t worry, we’ve only scheduled one “out on the town” date each month, so you only have to arrange for a babysitter once a month! The rest of the dates are fun and creative at-home options.} We’ve done all of the work for you, now you just have to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

**TIP: I suggest that you print the calendar (whatever calendar you two decide to use) and stick it somewhere where you’ll see it often. That way you can check off the little “love assignments” as you complete them. BUT make sure that you also save the digital file to your desktop. Wanna know why? The red text on the calendar are actually links! If you click on them, it will take you to a post with more details and sometimes FREE Printables to go with your little love assignment. So if you see a “red day” on the calendar, don’t forget to check the link!

So, are you ready to join our Marriage Challenge?

Just imagine what a whole month {or YEAR} of intentionally loving your spouse could do for your relationship!
