It's Almost Time for Back-to-School!
The last year and a half has been a rollercoaster for everyone, especially students. They have been isolated from fellow classmates and friends. Finally heading back to school full-time this fall may come with some worries and anxieties. To help ease kids into the mindset of being at school once again, try leaning into craft therapy and refreshing their school skills!
Since last year's back to school shopping was most likely postponed, kids will be extra excited to get back to school if they have fun and fresh supplies to show off to their new classmates.
Long bus rides or after school program time is perfect for picking up a craft like cross stitch!
Before it's time to head back to the classroom, get your home office/craft environment organized, cleaned and ready for all those take-home assignments that will start pouring in.
The first day back to school is always a little tough, with the summer amnesia clearing up. Freshen up those school skills with some workbooks and flash cards for reviewing math, spelling, and more, as well as educational toys and books!
Get your kids in the mood for science with some science and nature kits!
Don't know where to start? Invite a small group of kids over to work on projects together prior to their first day of school. These projects should be school themed to get them thinking and talking about the big day with their friends.
