My annual Back to School Party is many months away but my party planning mind is always on high alert. I love gleaning the back to school clearance sections for inspiration for the next years Grandkids' Back to School Bash. I will have nine school age grands attending next Fall.
I recently found my inspiration for our 2012 party on the clearance racks at Target. I can't share exactly what I found yet because I keep the theme of this event a big surprise for my grandchildren. What I can tell you is that the inspiration came for just .62 cents from classroom decorating supplies that are meant for teachers.
This clearance priced treasure is what got my creative event planning juices flowing. Since the event is months away I have created a notebook to gather my ideas and resources for activities, hand outs, online links, games, crafts, and more that I come across.
As a grandma, I very often use teacher and classroom supplies for the projects and activities that I do with my grandchildren. I have three little granddaughters that love playing school so teacher and classroom supplies are very often considered as gifts for playing pretend too.
Some of my favorite places to look for useful teacher supplies as a grandma and as gifts are online sites, Target's dollar section, and Dollar Tree. I couldn't be any more excited about the inspiration that came to me from a back-to-school clearance rack. But, I am going to have to keep it all in and you are going to have to wait to hear all about it next Fall!
