Make Back To School Fun with Quilling

quilling for school

It’s that time of the year again when students are getting ready to head back to school after an enjoyable summer vacation. One of the best parts of heading back to school is the ‘new’ factor associated with it. New academic year, new class, new teachers, new books, and even the possibility of new friends! How about adding some more excitement and doing away with the jitters of getting back to school by giving your child a much deserved boost to look forward to school welcoming and making it fun!

Let your child shrug off the monotony associated with going to school. There can indeed be a fun driving force that can trigger delight and positivity towards going back to school. While buying new back-to-school supplies is certainly something that most kids look forward to, why not try crafting a few ourselves!

Back to school craft projects are a great way of getting kids excited about the upcoming school year. Hand crafting has its own charm – not only is it a fun activity but also allows a child to express themselves and personalize their projects. They make for great parent child bonding activities as well. And as a parent and child create these wonderful back to school supplies the dialogue often revolves around aspects of school that the child can look forward to – this has an enormous subliminal benefit of generating positive energy in a child’s mind for the upcoming school year.

So how about we start with making a time table...
