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.
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…
And of course, my favorite coupon is this cute after school snack of milk and cookies!! Ooh! I can’t wait until they use this coupon so I can make my favorite chocolate chip cookies! Ha!
Once the coupon envelope is all put together, its time to put together your surprise!
Back to School Jokes
There are four fun, somewhat cheesy, back to school jokes to make the kids laugh and ease up some of the nerves that might come from heading back to school! Kids LOVE cheesy, right?
Now its time to make your back to school surprise. All you have to do is grab some helium balloons and attach a couple fun back to school jokes!
Once all the jokes are attached, you are ready to go.
Back to School Surprise
Tie the balloons around a fun surprise like markers and a notebook, or even a cute new lunchbox or backpack!
This surprise would be so perfect to leave on the kids’ beds the day before they start the new year OR when the kids arrive home after their first day of school! Wouldn’t that be so exciting to come home to this fun surprise?
The kids will be even more excited to head back to school knowing they have some fun coupons to use to help them get out of chores or have a trip out for ice cream with Mom and Dad!
Good luck sending your kids off to school this year! And don’t forget to…
This is too cute and super festive! It’ll excite my 2nd grader and pre-schooler for sure! Thank you so much!
