We had two first days today, one in 1st grade and the other in Kindergarten. Trying not to be that mom who gets too sappy, I cut out simple hearts out of parchment paper and wrote short notes to my children (they still smile at little surprises in their lunch boxes). Next time though, I might just try something like this decorated kraft bag; I love the simplicity and versatility of the design. I’d use it for the first day of school, birthdays, Valentines, and just because. Did you do something special for your child’s first day of school?
