Back to School Zoo

Today is the last little bit of summer for the kids, and our middle son - the one going into Junior High has his Orientation today, and then on Thursday it is school for everyone!  I'm not ready for summer to end - but I think we're all ready for a little more routine around here.

On that theme of back to school, we had a Birthday Party for our youngest son on Tuesday;  my sweet and feisty little boy is 8 years old now.  So for his party I made some fun back to school treat bags.

I know you've probably seen a lot of back pack treat bags, but they're just so cute, and it was perfect for the party.  I got the template from SCS HERE.  Fun to make too.  I used the very adorable TSG Set - Zoo-pendous.  stamping the cute giraffe image all over the backpack.  Yellow is our son's favourite color, so that's where we went  :)

Front and back view, don't you just love how the backpack straps and pulls look?  And then each backpack had a tiny tag with their name on it.  Seriously cute-ness!  Inside I fit a mini lego figure to build, a pack of gum and a mini chocolate bar.  The kids thought they were really fun too, and it was a great party to end summer with.  

Stamps:  TSG - Zoopendous;  Ink:  Memento Tangerine Tangelo;  Paper:  Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie;  Accessories:  Scor Pal, Scor Tape, Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelets, Twine.

These are too cute!! What a great idea. We're off to get a locker for DD and find all her classrooms. She's starting high school (8th grade here as no middle school) and NOT happy about it. Hoping today will help calm her down a bit as she is worried silly, poor thing!
