I hosted a Back to School social for the children in our neighborhood starting Kindergarten. We held the event over breakfast so it was very simple and a great chance for the kids and their parents to meet each other the Saturday before school started.
Brown paper bags with apple cutouts from Dollar Store in teacher section. Filled with school supplies - crayons, pencils and more.
Activities / Games
Puzzles, coloring free printables (school bus, first day of school), story time (all back-to-school themed books)
Most Touching Moment
Posing each of the kids in front of the chalkboard easel with a sign which said, "I'm Going to Kindergarten!" - great photo opportunities
