Get your children excited about the new term with these back to school crafts for kids! They can make lots of different things that they can use whenever they return to school in September.
August is a busy time in our house, getting school uniform sorted and making the most of the last few days of the Summer holidays.
We also like to spend some afternoons during a range of crafts, including pencil holder crafts to keep our stationary neat and tidy on our desk, as well as pencil case crafts, pencil toppers, and lots more!
School bus crafts, photo frame crafts and notebook crafts are also great activities to do with school.
I also have back to school activities and printables for kids, which include word searches and word scrambles to help children prepare for going back to school.
