Back to School Survival Kit

I know it's been a while since I have posted anything, but I wanted to share with you this cute little "Back to School Survival Kit" I put together for my girls this week. I got the idea a year ago on another gal's blog, but I can't remember what the name of it was. If anyone recognizes the idea please message me or comment, so I can give credit where credit is due...It turned out so sweet, and I was able to use things I already had around the house ( Walmart). I hope you enjoy and hopefully it will inspire you to make a special memory with your children. I am so melancholy at this time of year, it makes me want to bring out the old photo albums and baby books to marvel at how my girls have grown and turned into such amazing human beings. Good luck to all of you in the upcoming weeks of back to school and maybe I'll get back some of my creativity now that the girls are back to school.

I used Laffy Taffy, Fruit Roll Up, Tootsie Roll, Hershey Kisses, Lollipops, Smarties, Pencil, Paper Clip, Rubber band, decorative bag.

I typed up the poem and used the ties to attach it to the bag.

Back to School Survival Kit
To help you get on a ROLL into the new school year, we are giving you a back to school survival kit.
There are SMARTIES to boost your brain power and
A RUBBER BAND to help you stretch your mind.
A PAPER CLIP is to remind you that you have all the tools to hold it together.
TOOTSIE ROLLS are so you remember to roll with the punches,
And a PENCIL to let you know how sharp we think you are.
There’s LAFFY TAFFY to remind you to keep your sense of humor when days are tough.
A LOLLIPOP is to help you lick any obstacles that come your way and
There are also some extra KISSES for when you might need them.
Have a great first day,

Now, the kicker is, try to give it to them prior to them leaving for school. If you forget you will be like me, sneaking into the school to slip them into the backpacks without anyone seeing!!
