It’s not too late to start a DIY project with your kids before school starts back. Check out these 25 back-to-school DIY ideas for inspiration.
It’s that time of year again. My least favorite month out of all twelve. I know that sounds funny. As a work-at-home-mom, you would think that the kiddies going back to being out of the house for seven hours a day would be a blessing, but the truth is that I like having my kids home. It probably doesn’t help that I spend all of the summer months doing fun things with my kids. I know that if I tried to home school them, things would be drastically different. For instance, I would likely be pulling my hair out after the first few months.
So, even though I don’t like the transition from being home with the kids back to the schedule of taking the kids to school five days a week, I know it’s necessary for both them and me.
I always like to spend the last week before school starts back with a blast. I let both of my younger two (my oldest has already graduated) choose a place they want to go, but I limit the options to day-trips. This lets them enjoy the last of their summer and gives them memories that will be fresh in their minds as they’re making their way through the new routines they will have to become used to for the next ten months.
I also plan a couple of DIY projects for us to complete before they go back to school. As I started looking for new projects to try, I compiled this list to give me ideas for my kids. I hope it gives you and yours some ideas for projects you can create to make this school year the best yet.
