Every year, we start the school year with the same hopes for our daughters… for it to be the best year yet. This year is a little bit different though. The girls won’t be going to physical school. We didn’t have to purchase a cart’s full of supplies or uniforms. We don’t have to worry about waking up hours before school starts and driving them to three different schools, or picking them up for that matter. So this year, while everything is totally different, I wanted to make sure I brought a little normalcy to their days. I knew the best way to do that, was to pull out my Cricut Joy and create a little magic. I thought I’d share all of the great Cricut, back to school ideas I found. 

Back to School Chalkboard Sign Photo Prop

This adorable chalkboard sign photo prop idea from Mommyhood Life is perfect not only for this year, but for years to come. I love the idea of decorating a chalkboard that can be wiped clean and changed every year!

Customized Backpack

My girls want a new backpack every single year. But if I can squeeze two years out of them, it’s a win. So I love this customized backpack idea from Creative Ramblings! I can customize last year’s backpack and it gives them a totally different look!

First Day of School Pennant Flags

We tend to print out a paper every year and snap a first day of school pic. But this year, we wanted something different.  I love this first day of school pennant flags idea from At Home with Ashley!
