Kara's Party Ideas Back To School Party! | Kara's Party Ideas
With School starting just around the corner I thought I would feature this darling BACK TO SCHOOL PARTY submitted by Mariah Leeson of Giggles Galore. SUCH a cute party with SO many adorable ideas!
Mariah said- “The carefree days of summer are coming to an end, but for school-aged kids a new adventure is just around the corner. Back-to-school means new friends, new teachers and new memories! Get your little ones excited about the new school year and celebrate with a Back to School Bash.My daughter is going to kindergarten this year and I wanted to start the school year off right and document this exciting milestone. I decided to use my daughter’s love of books and reading as the focus of our party. Dimpleprints created the perfect invitation calling all bookworms to join us for an afternoon of fun.I set-up an old desk and bookshelf I borrowed from a friend to display the party treats and goodies. I served a traditional “school lunch” with items that were easy to make and budget friendly. We had PB&J sandwiches in decorated glassine bags, applesauce, fruit cups, milk, cookies, chocolate covered Oreos, and apple cake pops.During “recess” the kids got to burn off some energy with old school themed activities like “Teacher Says” (Simon Says), Red Rover, Freeze Tag and Kickball. I also created a little reading nook and filled it with books about starting kindergarten and going to school.My friend and photographer Elayne Dunn Photography was on hand to capture a “class photo” and take individual photos of each child. I used the First Day of Kindergarten sign from the party package and put it into a decorative frame for each kid to pose with and create a memorable keepsake for mom. I also made oversized flashcards with the numbers that represent their first day of school.

Our guest went home with a brown paper sack full of goodies to start the school year off right. The bags were filled with an apple shaped notepad, crayons, and a sweet treat. They were also given a composition notebook and bookmark to use as a journal throughout the year.

Whether your child is starting kindergarten or they are a seasoned school pro throwing a Back to School party is an A+ idea!”

  7. […] The website Kara’s Party Ideas has great ideas for youngsters heading to kindergarten. Party treats can be displayed on an old desk and the party food is traditional school lunch with applesauce, milk and cookies. “Recess” games include freeze-tag and kickball. A photographer can take a “class photo” and individual photos as keepsakes for the guests. Read more school-themed party ideas from Kara’s Party Ideas here. […]
