While many of you are planning how to spend your last few weeks of summer, we desert dwellers are gearing up for back to school! We’re already worrying about clothes, school supplies, class schedules, and whether or not our kids will find friends at school. I can’t believe summer is over! To start the first day of school off right, I’ve created these fun Smarties back to school printables. Use them to wish your Smarty Pants a great first day!
You’re probably wondering why some of the printables say “Smarty Pants” and others say “Smartie Pants.” That’s because I couldn’t make up my mind! Did I want to do a play on words with Smarties candy, or did I want to spell smarty correctly? I decided to let you decide! Both printables are available with both spellings. I know. I’m crazy. I can’t help it. I was just born that way!
For a fun twist on this idea, here’s what the young women at my church have been doing: They are participating in the 30 Day I Love You Challenge. For 30 days, they are doing nice things for their family members. These round “Smarty Pants” treats were created for them to leave on the pillows of their brothers and sisters before the first day of school. For more ideas for cool things to do for your family members during the month, be sure to follow the link above.
The larger printables are for the giant packs of Smarties that can be found in drug stores and gas stations. (I got mine at Maverick.) Since my oldest already made the small treats for her sisters, I’m making the bigger treats for her and her sisters. (I think I’ll hide them in their backpacks or something.) Overkill-yes, but I’ve never seen a kids frown at more candy or love from home!
Ready to make your own? Just click on the download button below to open up the pdf file. The file includes all four pages of printables. Of course, you won’t need all four pages. Just set your printer to print only the page you need.
If you are a teacher, the round printables would be fun for welcome treats for your new students. Enjoy!
