But come on it’s Cricut. How can we not include Cricut in school supplies??
We weren’t even sure there would be a “back to school” for 2020. But hey here we are. Our school district had 3 options for students this year.
A: homeschool B: two days at school-brick & mortar then 3 days at home with virtual learning. C: complete virtual learning.
It was actually pretty tough for us to decide. We initially wanted to homeschool but after much thought I realized I wouldn’t be doing my kids the best service trying to homeschool them. So of course option A and C weren’t the best for us. Trying to teach them 2nd and 4th grade with two one years old around is not easy! I learned my lesson last year!
Putting all the fear of everything this year has thrown at us aside, we decided to be excited for the 2020 school year. Prep and get ready for it just like any other year and possibly make it a little extra!
Here’s some of the things I customized for them! With my Official Cricut Joy machine!
Other than the normal school supplies for their grades I had to get things to help with the virtual learning days. So I added a book bin and a caddy to help keep their desks organized!
The kids really loved the caddies with all their school supplies in it! Of course we had to have separate caddies because siblings don’t share!
My mom picked up these little plastic jars at the dollar store. They had lids but I thought they would be perfect for keeping the kids pencils separated in the caddies. It’s made it easier for them to grab what they need instead of rummaging around in the caddy. I added the names & they are so perfect!
Had to have the folders & notebooks jazzed up you too!
I found these amazingggggg holographic pencil cases in a 3 pack & had to get them for Jennings. I wanted to change it up and put some sayings on these. I knew with all the changes this year she might need some extra encouragement throughout the day! How cute are these???? Kind is Cool. Rise & Shine. And Love Wins.
More than ever the schools are encouraging the kids to not share supplies. Thats so tough for my two! They love sharing with their friends. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found some other kids stuff in their book bags (last year of course) & ours gone! But we know that’s not good right now so anything to help encourage the kids to keep their own stuff helps! Thanks Covid!
My bestie & I joked that our boys, who are besties as well are going to get kicked out the first day for hugging! Lol!
The best before school picture we were getting after so long off! Here’s to an amazing 2020-2021 school year!
For all these projects I used official Cricut products. Cricut Joy machine, permanent vinyl, weeding tool and a scraper tool! This was my first year personalizing there kids school supplies with my own Cricut & it was so easy! And not to mention fun!!
I love the Cricut Joy because it’s so compact. No buttons, just an app on your phone or computer! The vinyl is a smart vinyl which means no mats, just load the paper. It’s so easy Jennings could show you how to use it. It’s perfect for small spaces or busy moms.
Let me know in the comments how your area is taking on school this year! Are you going all out or nah??
