Last year my kids were very nervous about starting school. I came across this website:
www.happyhomefairy.com She has some great ideas for going back to school. So I decided to try a few....I got my kids excited about the back to school fairy coming to our house the night before school starts.
So that evening before school we had our favorite meals and even baked a back to school cake. The kids had a blast. We had pizza, spaghetti and cake for supper.
Once the kids were in bed I decorated the house with streamers, balloons, and glitter (back to school fairy left) while flying around our home. *NOTE* Pain to clean up glitter on the floor afterwards!
So when the kids woke up that morning ready for their first day of school the back to school fairy came...she left them a little present at their spot on the kitchen table. We had our favorite breakfast. The kids really enjoyed it and made their butterflies go away.
Here are a few pictures...

Ready to go!
