Awesome Back to School Basket That’s Perfect for Kids

back to school basket for kids

We’re all excited and a little nervous about the new school year. My first grader will be attending school on campus this year. It will be a completely new experience for him because he did online learning for kindergarten. There will be a lot of restrictions including a closed campus. Unfortunately, I will not be able to walk him to his class. However, I know he’s going to do well and have a wonderful day. I decided to make this awesome back to school basket for my son to celebrate returning to school.

I packed so many goodies in my son’s back to school basket. Most of the items are from his school supply list. I decided to wait until we met with his teacher before purchasing all the supplies (mom tip). She let us know that her students would only need a few things that was actually on the list. The pennant is from a really awesome mom who makes amazing printables. You can get this free download from The Bear & The Fawn as well as other back to school prints.
