Prepare your kids for the new school year with these 51 fun and easy back to school crafts for kids!

Can you believe it? In a few weeks, our kids will be back at school, expanding their knowledge and making new friends. My son is going to Kindergarten this year and I am getting all the feels. How did he grow up so fast?

I have to be honest, I am more nervous than he is. He is going to a K-8 school, so the facilities are HUGE. I just can’t imagine my little boy walking into a gigantic building with tons of other students older than him.

As part of preparing him for the first day of school, we have been doing some back to school crafts! Here are some fun and easy back to school crafts for kids that will get your children excited about school.
