Back-to-School Ideas

Crafts For Kids

Now is the time for some good Back-to-School Ideas!

Would you believe that in Italy, kids have a FULL THREE MONTHS of summer vacation?!! They will only go back to school mid- September?

For those of you, who are starting earlier than that, here’s an overview of our Back-to-School projects and tips to date.


Back to School Sales & Deals for New Supplies

SAVE when you shop for your Back to School supplies.





There are too many creative back-to-school project plans, patterns & ideas to highlight all at once. So let me share them with you progressively over the week, neatly organized like this:

monday : fun fashion friendship gifts that are easy to make

tuesday : backpacks, school bags & lunch bags

wednesday : pencil cases, make-up bags & ‘thingy’ bags

thursday : schedulers, organizers, notice boards, locker ideas & desk accessories

friday : college, teenage & kid bed room decorating

I hope you enjoyed all ideas & tutorials and are having a beautiful, fun & productive start of the new school year.

And if you want ‘a bit of everything back-to-school’ already today, have a look at our Back-to-School Creative Projects overview of last year, or simply use our category or search buttons and browse around. We have 600+ project posts here; you are bound to find something you’ll love to make.

BTW In the week following, I’ll sort through my Provence, France design and creative idea photos, for those who requested this.


Going Back-to-school can be a celebration and a fun time to reconnect with school friends. Start on a good foot with old pals and/or set yourself/your kids up for fresh starts in old friendships: make some friendship gifts, to help anyone to be trendy this Fall.
