Back-to-school time is the perfect opportunity to teach kids about the importance of learning. But why stop there? Why not make the whole experience a learning opportunity?

A mini back-to-school theme could be just the thing to get everyone excited about learning again. Read on below for our favorite ideas to get your planning done in no time at all!

Children’s Book Ideas

Most parents want their kids to love reading, but sometimes it can be hard to get them interested. One of the best ways to spark a love of reading in kids is by reading aloud to them.

When parents take the time to read aloud to their kids, it sends the message that reading is important and that books are worth paying attention to.

Additionally, hearing books read to them can help kids learn to focus longer, improve their vocabulary, and so much more!

Try out one of these fun books:

The Day the Crayons Quit – If you only read one book, this one is it! It has a hilarious storyline and has cute illustrations too.

Pete the Cat Crayons Rock – Fans of Pete the Cat, will love reading this book about Pete and his drawing.

The Day the Crayon Came Home – Once you read The Day the Crayons Quit, you’ll definitely want to read the sequel to find out what happened!

Back To School Crafts

Some might say that arts and crafts are a waste of time, but they clearly haven’t seen the benefits that crafting can have for young children.

Not only is crafting a great way to encourage kids to use their imaginations, but it can also help them to develop important fine motor skills. In addition, crafting can be a great way for kids to express themselves and relieve stress.

So next time someone tries to tell you that arts and crafts are a waste of time, just smile and keep on having the kids glue on those glittery pom-poms to their latest creation. Because in the end, we all know that crafting is pretty much the best thing ever!

Try adding in these cool crafts:

Popsicle Stick Crayon Craft – Popsicle sticks and crayons are two of the most iconic items from childhood. Put them together, and you’ve got a formula for cuteness overload! This popsicle stick crayon craft is not only cute, but it’s also a whole lot of fun to make. Just gather up a few supplies and your kids will be ready to go!
