How To Homeschool My Child

First Day of School Activities {Blog Candy Contest}

In case you didn’t see my recent blog post, I am having a blog candy contest.  All you have to do to enter is post a comment about how you celebrate the first day of school.

First Day of School Activities

As you may have read, we celebrate with Ice Cream for Breakfast.  Even when Hunter was a senior in high school, Hunter looked forward to making his own ice cream sundae.

Another one of my first day of school activities was taking a photo of each kid – in the same place every year.  I’ve also seen some fun first day of school photos on pinterest. This includes holding a chalkboard with the grade written in chalk.  Take a photo of your child holding the chalkboard.

How do you celebrate the First Day of School?

    I realized after reading your post that we don’t really have a special way to celebrate the first day of school. I really like the idea of taking photos – don’t know why I haven’t done that. If the kids were going off to public school I’d be taking pictures of them on their first day. Thanks for the inspiration.

    We did not try any such things yet, but sounds like a good idea. Think I should try something like that.

    We do the “first day of school” photos, but that is about all. I love the idea of sundaes for breakfast and I’m sure my kids would absolutely *love* that idea. Thanks for the great idea!

    All we do is first day of school photos too…

  5. First day class is really an exciting to start with from new friends, environment and activities that you will be doing. Normally, we don’t do that because that very usual and when I read your article it sounds cool so I think we’ll be doing that soon.
