Back to School with Crayola Giveaway- Tips, Tricks and Printables
I don’t know about you, but this family is heading back to school with Crayola.
There isn’t much time left for Back to School preparation. Sorry to be the bearer of bad (or good news depending on who you are) but the summer, is coming to an end rather soon. Don’t kill the messenger here, I am just stating the obvious.
Getting ready for Back to School can be rather rushed and a touch chaotic. Not only do you need supplies to send them off to school with, but you also need things around the house for those projects they bring home.
Ensuring that you are as well prepared for Back to School as you can be, is super important.
Tips & Tricks
Attitude is a large part of getting kids excited about going back to school. Children look forward to seeing their friends from school and getting back into a regular “school routine.” Here are a few tips to help get your kids back in the habit:
• Practice getting up early about a week before school starts.
• Create excitement around organizing your kids’ homework area and purchasing new school supplies. Making back to-school preparations special will help them transition from the carefree summer days.
• Talk to your kids about what they can expect during a typical school day. Sure it is exciting to go back to school the first day or two. But kids should also be prepared for the reality of waking up early, rushed mornings, the discipline of sitting at desks, and being responsible for getting work done.
• Prepare a list of favourite breakfast foods that are quick and easy to fix in the morning.
• Talk to your child about what kinds of healthy foods they can pick out during lunchtime and how to spend their lunch money wisely.
• Select and lay out clothes the night before school starts.
• Establish an afternoon schedule that includes snack, homework, and personal time that kids can spend in their favourite ways.

Why We Love Crayola
Crayola sent us box that contained some pretty cool stuff. Markers, Pencil Crayons, Construction Paper, Glue.. You name it. My kids jumped for joy when we opened it. They were super excited to use all that stuff as we LOVE arts and crafts.
I put a bunch of it away in their pencil cases for back to school. Some of the stuff I hid in the cabinet for me.. (Like the sparkly and metallic markers, I didn’t want to share them.. shh don’t tell.)
Not only did the kids LOVE every single item (aside from the hidden ones of course, which I have used since and LOVE) but they have been using them every single day since to create wonderful works of art for their family and friends. They rave about the scents from the scented markers, they brag about how bold and bright the colours are and fawn over all the awesome stuff they have to create art.
