Oh, make sure you head back to Jovan's Blog after the hop for the back to school challenge she will be having..

We were asked to share what back to school means to us.. So, to me back to school is a little sad because my son will be going to school for the first time this year.. I know his so ready to go, but I'm not ready for him to be so big just yet.. To make his first day special I made a fun little snack for him to eat on the way home from school..

Don't they grow up so fast? I totally here you about you not being ready. I tell my three year old that she is not allowed to get any older lol. I love your back to school project and the treat mix. Great idea. Thank you for joining us at Whimsical Wednesdays.

Karen H said...

This is such a lovely project! The treat topper is absolutely adorable (the crayon is PRECIOUS) and the treat itself looks so tasty. What I love most is the project itself... he'll be (or already was) so happy to have something from his loving mom as he makes his way home from an eventful first day. Such a loving project! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesdays! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
