Back to School Party

It's been over a week now, and I'm still having trouble with the fact that my oldest is in Kindergarten now!  I can't believe how fast time really does fly.  To get ready for the upcoming school year we decided to have a back to school party with all of his friends.  Rather than do a long post, I thought I would just do a short recap and post the pictures. 

The food was pretty simple.  We had sandwiches, chips, applesauce, peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, apple cake pops, chocolate covered crayons, and milk.  I used a lot of decorations from the Dollar Spot at Target, including letters, numbers, and a pencil and crayon vase.  I glued letters and numbers to white tin pails to hold the apple pops.  I also made flashcard garland and poms to hang up around the house.  For activities we decorated backpack tags that I found off of Ebay.  We also listened to School House Rock and had balloon animals from a friend of mine.  For favors I had pencil boxes filled with crayons, stickers, pencils, bookmarks, etc.  I had glitter glue so each kid could write their name on their box.  I love how it turned out, and everyone had a wonderful time!
