Make a Summer Memory Book..I saw this idea on Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. It would be a fun tradition to make little summer albums together as a family, on the weekend before school starts.  To remember all the fun you had!  I love this idea!  The memory book could be as simple or as elaborate as you like (patterned papers, photo mats, stickers…)

Letter to my child: Some parents write a letter on the first day of school, which their child can read on the bus or during a free moment at school.

Your letter might offer encouragement or point out specific things your child did that made you proud. Consider saving a copy of each year’s letter for your child to reread at high school or college graduation.

Here is a fun printable you can add with that letter from the Back To School Fairy.
