I can't believe school starts in a week! I remember this time last year I started to get completely anxious about my daughter starting kindergarten. Now, here she is getting ready to enter 1st grade and we had so much fun going shopping for all her back to school supplies and clothes. I've also enjoyed doing a few back to school projects to help us get organized and prepared for school.
Last year, I would slip little notes and treats into her lunch bag, but this year I thought it would be fun to write her notes on chalkboard covered containers.
I started by picking up 2 sandwich containers from the dollar store (BPA free) and Martha Stewart chalkboard paint from the craft store. I painted 3 coats on the lid of each container, let it dry then had fun writing.
My daughter is not a big eater and rarely eats sandwiches, she would much rather eat finger foods. These containers are the perfect size to keep all her snacks neat and organized.
What about you, are you ready for back to school?
