The Back to School season happens at different times of the year for different people. Around here the arrival of August is the signal that the summer will end soon and it's back to the books! Today I'm teaming up with a totally awesome group from the Kid Blogger Network for a huge Back to School Link Up! It is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Educators' Spin on It and my contribution is to share a collection of Back to School Crafts! A couple affiliate links appear in this post, just so you know.
The three topics that come to mind- for ME- when back to school crafts are mentioned are Apples, School Buses and Pencils, so those are the categories I focused on!
Some of these are fun to make WITH your kids in preparation for school or once school has started, while others are great to make FOR your kids, or maybe even for their teachers!
