Back-To-School Backpack Craft!

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

This week marks the beginning of the school year for my kids.  It is hard to believe that summer is over.  In fact tonight is the kids' sneak peek.  We get to go to school, see their classrooms, and meet their teachers.  It is a pretty exciting time.

I have been wanting to do more craft posts, or at least a craft post.  So last week, I thought it would be neat if the kids made something in preparation for the upcoming school year. 

I dug through my craft supplies, but didn't really find what I was looking for, so I decided to head out to our local Dollar Tree. 

I searched the aisles looking for that perfect craft project, when I found some I.D. badges and some stickers. I thought it would be a great idea for them to decorate these to put on their backpacks. 

I added in some of my own construction paper and more stickers to round it out.

The kids traced around the card that came with the I.D. badge onto some construction paper, and from there they decorated it with stickers.  What I love was that the artwork can be switched out if they want something different.  And it only cost $2.00 a piece for both. 

Having fun creating!

I loved this super easy and quick craft.  The kids loved decorating it like they wanted, and it was an easy clean-up. 

I do wish I would have had some scrapbook paper that they could have used instead of construction paper, but I was trying to keep the cost down and use items I already had on hand. 

So back to school we go!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer!  When do your kids start school?
