Back to school season is here, and if your child is heading off to Kindergarten, you may be thinking about ways to make their first day special. Or you may need ideas to help ease the transition for younger siblings.
We're sharing our favorite first day of school traditions, activities, and ideas to make the Kindergarten send-off a memorable one.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL TRADITIONS & KINDERGARTEN KICK-OFF IDEAS
1. Make a batch of Kissing Hand Cookies (hand-shaped cookie cutters, Hershey's kiss in the center) and of course read The Kissing Hand while you eat them!
2. Serve an apple-themed breakfast and/or lunch: red, apple-shaped pancakes, apple-shaped sandwich, apple slices, etc.
3. Create a back-to-school countdown chain.
4. Take a picture of your child holding a sign with the grade level and year (in their first day of school outfit, of course!). Even more ideal is to take the picture in front of the school.
5. Have a ''Back to School'' fairy that leaves a special surprise the night before school starts.
6. Plan a special outing after school…like a trip to the ice cream stand.
7. Buy a new first day of school outfit.
8. Do a special hairdo (braids will result in wavy hair the next day).
9. Put a special treat in your child's lunchbox (like a cookie).
10. Decorate the breakfast table with balloons.
11. Bake a special cupcake and serve it for breakfast.
12. Take a photo in the same place every year starting with the first day of Kindergarten.
Plan a school-themed lunch or dinner (alphabet soup etc.).
13. Give your child a clip-on for their backpack. It helps keep them distracted on the bus ride. Some clip-on's we've seen have included a compass, a soccer ball, a mini flashlight, and Legos.
