Back To School 

Now that my little family is a bit bigger, I wanted to start an annual back to school dinner. This year, I threw it mainly for me going back to school (work), although Logan will be starting preschool soon.

 I kept it pretty simple with a few yummy deserts and a scavenger hunt. When Logan starts preschool, I am going to put together a little care package.

We devoured chocolate cupcakes. I love cupcakes. I made the half the cupcakes toppers with letters and the other half with the back to school logo.

Logan and Hannah especially liked the cake pops. They were pretty easy to make. I used a store bought icing pen to make the letters.

After dinner, we went on a back to school scavenger hunt. I gathered a few common school supplies and the kids had to do the action and find the item.  I kept it short because it was almost bed time. You can definitely make yours longer!

The clues:

1. Skip to the front door and find an item that add "color" to your world. (crayons)

2. Run to your bedroom to find an item that "measures" your growth. (ruler)

3. Hop to the desk to find an item that helps you "write" your ABC's and 123's. (pencils)

4. Walk backwards to the kitchen table to find an item that helps you "create" your masterpiece. (construction paper)

When we were finished, we used our supplies to create a picture. We had a lot of fun and I found that the kids LOVED going on a scavenger hunt!

What are your back to school traditions?
