It has been a tradition I started a few years back to throw a Back To School Breakfast on the first day of school. The reason is I do this is to get the kids excited about the new school year. Also, making memories is a huge part. My kids are growing fast and it’s only a matter of time before my Back To School Breakfast will be a thing of the past. Sigh.
This year I decided to make homemade donuts. And when I say homemade I mean I did not buy them from the store. (wink) Of course all three kids wanted a different flavor. Glaze, Cinnamon Sugar and Sprinkles. No problem! This was so easy to do because I just used the Grand Biscuits to make the donuts. I found the recipe on Sprinkle Some Sugar. She has some amazing recipes! You can find the donut recipe here.
I made this Back to School Subway Art for a fun decoration. This would also make such a cute teacher gift too. Get your Free Printable here. I painted the frame red and displayed the subway art in it. I Love how this turned out!
The ruler basket I found at JoAnn’s Craft Store. I just filled it with #2 pencils and a pair of scissors.
The two glass milk jars I found at Hobby Lobby. And they were red and green. The colors of my theme.
The red and green plates I found at Big Lots. Again, it went perfect with my color theme.
And the last thing I did was make a Bento lunch for Claire. She loves when I make her lunches like this. Truth be told I like it too. She never knows what her lunch is going to be until lunch time. I tried to go with the a School theme for first day of school and I think it turned out pretty cute. I found the pencil idea on Pinterest of course. I used a cheese stick, one bugle chip with a tiny piece of a raisin stuck to the tip. For the eraser I used the center krabby patty. I found the apple cupcake picks on Amazon. I used an apple shaped cookie cutter for the sandwich and I used a green food marker to color in the stem. Then I added letter Cheeze-It crackers. That is it. Our Back to School Breakfast was a success. Here’s to a new school year!
