Back to School Party

Back to School Party Ideas

Have you ever had a Back to School Party? It’s a fun way to motivate children and get into the back to school mood and routine. Teachers can have this party on Back to School Night or after a long holiday break. Parents can have this party before the beginning of the school year, at the end of the first week of school or after any long holiday break. It can be as simple as cookies and juice box. If you add a banner and party labels, it makes it extra special.

To prepare for the party, all you need is:

  1. Any school items already at hand
  2. A few printables to label and decorate the room or table
  3. Simple snacks like apples, cookies, cupcakes, popcorn and candy

The following are photos of our Back to School Party

We used special containers and straws for our milk. Cafeteria milk boxes are also a great choice.

Simpler Ideas for Back to School Night

Teachers, your room is already decorated with all the supplies and bulletin boards.

It could be anything like, a cookie, an apple, a small popcorn bag or a writing object with a gift tag.
