The Partiologist: Back to School Ideas

Back to School Ideas

It must be August because school supplies are everywhere.  I wanted to highlight some of my favorite back to school ideas from the past.  They're just so much fun year after year, I really think you'll love them all!

Chocolate Crayola Pencil Pretzels

Can you believe these are chocolate coated pretzels wrapped with  paper and topped with a Crayola topper? Original idea by Parties by Hardie.

Yep, be sure to check them out. HERE

Or chocolate topped crayon brownies?  HERE

A cute backdrop made with crayons and tissue paper and poster board.

Remember wrapping tissue squares around the end of a pencil eraser and sticking them on paper?

Well, that's exactly what I did.

And homemade donuts. Yes, homemade.

And Bus Stop Blueberry Muffins.

Which is just a blueberry muffin topped with a bus.

Or a Fresh Apple Muffin?  Served in a plastic apple container found at Oriental Trading.

I think I'll have one of each.
You must save room for colored pencil cookies.  HERE

Tied with sweet tags, they fit perfectly in pretzel bags.

What fun colors!

Speaking of colors, how about these chocolate paint splatter cookies?  HERE

Each bagged and tied with a black ribbon and paint brush!

I give these banana chocolate chip cookies an A+ just for the cute packaging.

I found the notebook printed favor bags on Etsy and ran them through my printer adding the words.

 How about a pencil to print your name, or to eat?

Perfect for teacher...Apple Popcorn Balls.  HERE

And Book Worm Cupcakes.  HERE

Yogurt Push Paint Pops 

And to start the fun, ART Bingo, where everyone is a winner.

With all these ideas, wouldn't you want to start back to school?


  1. This is AMAZING! I'm glad there's a new tradition of Back to School parties. It must make returning to class less of an anxious experience for kids who get to see their friends just before it starts at an event like this! So creative!

    1. Thank you, I think back to school parties are a must!! :)
