Celebrate Back To School!

It seems as though summer has flown by faster than usual this year.  We are in our last days of August, and next week it’s time for the kiddies to hit the books!  Though school is nearly back in session, it doesn’t mean the celebrating has to stop.  In fact, why not use “Back To School” as an excuse to party!

Simply Celebrate The First Day Back

The first day of school isn’t just a big one for the kindergarteners, but rather it’s a fresh new start for everyone!  Routine and organization are back at the forefront for parents and kids alike.  Celebrate the first day back with a low-key, no fuss, family BBQ!  Relax together and soak up the late summer sun.  Making it through the first few days can be a challenge for many children after an extended summer break.  Reward your kids for a great first week with a simple & fun gathering of friends.  One last pool party before the season is done!  Savour all of the fun that summer has to offer without breaking the bank.  Think water balloons and squirt guns, campfires and smores, watermelon and corn on the cob…the possibilities for inexpensive, easy fun are endless!
