Getting the kids excited about going back to school has to be a positive thing and what better way to do it than with these fun back to school crafts! There’s loads of cute ideas including pencils, apples and school busses – perfect for helping with a happy transition to a new class.
Fun Back to School Crafts
I wrote up this round up of back to school crafts and then realised I’d actually written one last year too – oops! Never underestimate the ability of the summer holidays to make you go a bit crazy! If you’d like to check it out you can check out more back to school crafts here, amazingly I appear to have used totally different crafts for each round up so it’s a good way to find more inspiration.
You’ll find all the activities below in the same order as they appear in the collages, although there’s more ideas than I’ve shown so make sure you check them all out. Want to make sure you don’t forget any of these? Make sure you bookmark this page or pin an image so you’ve got all this inspiration to hand when you need it. Want more fun crafts for kids?
