This is such a cute idea and super easy, too! These printables were designed by Messes to Memories and they are perfect for kids!

Back to School Questionnaire

To get you started, we put together a cute, little back to school questionnaire that you can use to find out what your kids are most excited about for the upcoming year, and maybe what they are a little nervous about.

Back to School Questionnaire

As the kids are starting a new year, you’ll want to make sure communication is open and that you’re aware of their concerns so that you can be a strong support for your kids. Plus, after finding out some of their favorites, you can surprise them with their favorite snacks and treats!

Back to School Coupons

After your kids take the simple questionnaire, put together the Back to School Coupon Envelope! My husband helped me come up with the design for this envelope and it turned out so perfect.

These coupons are a super simple way to promise your kids that even though they’re starting school, you’re still dedicated to spending some quality time with them and they will definitely love some of the extra special privileges that come with some of these coupons.

All of these adorable Back to School Coupons fit perfectly inside and will be so fun for the kids to use after they head back to school! You know the kids will definitely be wanting a little screen time to relax after they work hard all day at school…
