The other day in our office, a few of us were reminiscing about how much we all loved shopping for new school supplies when we were kids. Getting that list from your school and checking everything off was always so satisfying! We know preparing for a new school year can be a busy time, which is why we’re rounding up a bunch of back-to-school DIY supplies and projects for you that are easy to make.
Below you will find fun ideas for customizing their backpacks along with simple printables to personalize all of their back-to-school supplies. Just click the links to go to each project!
Start the School Year With New Supplies!
These back-to-school DIY projects are super cute and simple to create. Your kids can even join in on the fun!
You can use our lunch box notes to give your kids some words of encouragement, print our back-to-school DIY calendar to help you get organized for the school year, and help build good study habits with our homework station (find these back-to-school DIY ideas below in our list!). We also have several different styles of labels for you to browse. These printable labels are a fun way to personalize your kid’s school supplies and know exactly what belongs to them.
If you make any of these projects over the next few weeks, I’d love to see them! Make sure to share your DIY school supplies with us on Instagram using the hashtag #MadeWithLia. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
