It’s that time of year again, kids are heading back to school and either your child is excited at the prospect or they are dreading the end of their summer. Either way it’s the perfect time to get them more excited by creating some fun back to school crafts you can all work on together.

This is also great for teachers looking for craft ideas to work on with students the first day. It’s a wonderful way to get to know your students’ personalities.

I’ve noticed my sister can always get her son more excited about the prospect of almost anything if she can personalize the project for him. By letting him put his personality into whatever they’re working on makes him feel special.

So here are some ideas that allow creativity and personality to shine, and are perfect for kids to use at school:

Cubby Coat Hangers- These hangers are easy to make, useful and will get kids excited about personalizing their own space at school. Plus, they’re adorable!
