Shopping for school supplies and anxiety about meeting new teachers and classmates is often part of the last few weeks of summer. This year, why not make things a little more fun? These back-to-school crafts are great projects that will encourage creativity and get kids excited for September 3rd.

It also is a great way to use up all those Popsicle sticks you’ve accumulated over the summer. This school bus photo frame is magnetic too, so it is ideal for your fridge or your kid’s locker.

Inside Out Emoji Magnets
