Printables for the 1st Day of School

One of our most important traditions for back to school is the First Day of School photos.

New clothes, new shoes, new backpacks… and THIS year, I found these great back to school printables I will be including in the photos.

From I Heart Naptime, and Sugar Tot Designs, check em out

Super Hero Party Ideas and Other Fun!

Spiderman… Batman… Superman… every boy wants a party with one (or more) super heroes involved.  Check out the tutorials and inspiration below!

First, check out the FAB Batman party inspiration from Anders Ruff… an incredible cake, batman party food, FABULOUS batman cake and cake pops, place settings, snacks, and more!

 

Some GREAT ideas from Designer Girl007… for a Super Hero Academy! She shares fun superhero activities and games that are easy to set up and fun for kids.  LOVE that she gives each guest a superhero certificate before they leave! Her blog post links up to a great CAPE TUTORIAL with MASK, from Family Fun.

From Ambrosia Girl, check out the great cape-making idea.  There is a quick FAQ at the end of the post to answer the pressing questions.  Such a great way to mix party fun AND take-homes!

 

And if you are up for a fun challenge (with fab results), check out the tutorial from Sweet Sugar Belle for STAR WARS cookies…  these aren’t exactly the definition of super-heroes, but I think they fit the theme too!  These use common, inexpensive cookie cutters found at most craft or baking stores.  Even if you aren’t up to attempting these, it is worth reading the post just to soak in some of the creativity!

I’m ready for a HERO party, aren’t you??
