A Little Back-to-School Goodie

     Once again I find myself working on cute, little, totally unnecessary things instead of tackling something more important.  Our first day of school is a week from today, so I realize that I need to get to work on the essentials, but for tonight my inability to prioritize led to a cute little project that I thought I would share.
     If your school is anything like mine, backpack tags are all the rage.  The kids come in with so many baubles attached to their bags that they actually jingle.  You know what they say, "If you can't fight 'em, join 'em!"  So, I made some kindergarten backpack tags for my incoming kids to decorate their new backpacks with.  I'm just going to cut them out, laminate them, punch a whole in the top and add a binder ring.  (You could also add yarn to make them into necklaces instead.)  If you'd like a set, click below the picture.  Now I promise I'll move on to more productive projects. Really. I will...


  1. super cute! I teach 2nd but i know 2 little girls who did start K this year that I will share these with.

  2. I also teach 2nd...too bad you don't have any of those!!

  3. Thanks again, Donna, for such cute little things to help spice up the year!

  4. I made these for my kindergarten parents...I got them hard laminated at Office Depot and hot glued a clothespin on it and then put a strip of magnetic tape on the back of the clothespin.
    I had all of their papers needed for our meeting clipped with them. Then they got to take them home to have a clip to have their students work on the fridge. They loved them. 2024 sounds a long way away!!!!

  5. I need a set of these for this year. Are you willing to send them template, since it's in PDF I can't change it. But I love it and it is beyond cute!!!!

  6. wondering the same thing... are you willing to make these for this school year..super idea and it is ADORABLE

Bunches of enquiries inside a brief span period may bring about the officially low FICO rating to deteriorate. So attempt to keep inside a few request or something like that and you ought to be okay.
