Back to school has kicked off and nerves and excitement are high. Regardless of the feelings, it’s a time in the year worth doing something special for students. Here are five ways to celebrate the new school year.
- Take a first day of school photo. Capture your child’s excitement or nervousness with a dramatic pose or expression. Documenting your child’s yearly growth is a tradition that you will look back on and cherish. This can be a fun collection of photos to look over on high school graduation day.
- BTS BBQ. Nothing like a back-to-school bash to welcome the new school year and have fun with friends and family. Throw some burgers, hot dogs and veggies on the BBQ, dancing music and you’ve got yourself a school year kick-off.
- Grab a special after-school treat. Celebrate the completion of the first day, week or month with a trip to Baskin-Robbins . The brand offers personalized cakes for every occasion, milkshakes and a new line of sundaes in a 12 oz size that is perfect for sharing.4. Revamp the wardrobe. Work up your child’s confidence by letting them have fun choosing new clothing that will get the excitement level up for the new school year. Bringing them to their favourite store – with a few boundaries of course – lets them have fun within reason.
5. Plan a school supply scavenger hunt. Calm first day jitters with a school supply hunt. Hide clues throughout your home, give your kids a bag and enjoy watching your kids take on the challenge of finding their school supplies.
Doing something special to mark the fresh new start is not necessarily going to eliminate the jitters or butterflies, but it’s sure to help create the positive memories that your child and family will remember fondly in the long run. .
