How to Make Back to School Supply Buckets!

Making the first day or the first week of school special can really help get your children excited about school. I love to have a special surprise at the table when they wake up the first day back. If you do all year school you could schedule this sometime after one of your breaks.

It can create excitement and joy at least for a little while and I will take all I can get when starting a new year.

Don’t feel like you need to spend tons of money on it, just buy what you normally would anyway with your supply list and add a little more fun with it with a container or ribbon. Add a special note for each child letting them know how proud of them you are and how you’re looking forward to this year of learning with them. Maybe even add a special prayer or scripture verse just for them. They will love it!
