PostHeaderIcon Easy #Halloween #Classroom Treat Ideas For #Teachers

School Friendly Halloween Treats - DelightfulChaos.com
I spent most of Spencer’s kindergarten year in the classroom. I would help the teacher out with whatever she needed. During 2nd grade, I bonded with his teacher over our love for Pinterest. I helped her with many food related projects because, as she put it, “You’re way better at that stuff than I am”. She honestly was amazing! We did find it a task to find thngs to make, with the kids, that wouldnt end up being confusing or a total disaster.

I decided to put together a list of things that would be fun, and seem fairly easy, for teachers to make with their students. If you have any that you would like to add, please leave a comment below with your link. Remember, we are looking for simple, kid friendly ideas. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Head Back to School with a ChoozePack #Giveaway

Chooze Reversible Backpacks - DelightfulChaos.com

Many people say that boys are easier to raise than girls. Having 4 boys running around doesn’t make me a believer in that statement. I have two that change their clothes more than I do and two that are so worried about what they are wearing. Sometimes I think the chromosomes took a left hand turn somewhere. They are all definitely like little girls at times but then again, aren’t all men?

Picking backpacks is seriously a chore with them. One wants this and one wants that, I always say that one year I am just going to buy 4 and they get what they get. Of course that never happens because it would just be a lot of complaining. Pick and choose your battles right?

PostHeaderIcon Back to School with Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Has anyone seen the summer? I am not sure where it went but I wasn’t quite done with it. For some reason, this summer seemed to just whiz on by. We didn’t get to do half of the things that we wanted to do it seems. I am happy to say that Spencer can now ride a bike without training wheels. I think that was the highlight of his summer. He picked in up in less than 10 minutes. I was so proud of him and so was his big brother.

The boys start school on August 27th. They are starting a new school this year so there was so much to do, yet to get done and unknowns. I guess all parents have the same fears about things like that. Will they like the kids? Will they like the teachers? Will they make new friends easily? What will the lunches be like?

PostHeaderIcon Help Your School Excel with Excedrin #Giveaway

It’s that time again, back to school! I know some of you have children that haven’t started back yet but, most of us have.  According to a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin®, 69% of parents, who have at least one child in school this school year, say they are excited for their child’s first day of school. We all know it is so we can get back to a routine and have some quiet time! That doesn’t change the fact that 44% of parents also say they expect to get a headache during the back to school season.

Between school supplies, new clothes and for me, learning about a new school, it can be very overwhelming.  According to a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin®, more than one-third of parents see getting themselves (41%) and their children (43%) back on a schedule at the top of the list of things that might cause their headaches during the back to school season.   In addition, more than one-third (35%) of parents say shopping for school supplies might give them a headache.  With all the pencils, folders and notebooks, parents should remember to put Excedrin® on their back to school shopping list.

Every year I am amazed buy the school supply list. I remember when all you needed was a backpack. The schools supplied everything else. Even though I bought everything on both the boys lists, they are still coming home with notes for additional supplies. Now that Royal is in Junior High this year, it’s just crazy. multiple teachers, multiple rules and more supplies than usual. Shopping was definitely at the top of my headache list this year. I think the $60 one strap backpack that Royal wanted this year was the biggest headache but, he’s happy so I’m happy.
