Heading back to school will be here before you know it. Whether you homeschool, public school, or private school, it’s exciting to get our kids fired up about back to school. School is such a big part of our kids’ lives that it only makes sense to get them as excited as possible. Get your kids excited about back to school with these tips.
Fun Tips to Get Your Kids Excited for Back to School
Talk to them about school
You have the power to get your kids super fired up about school. Your first step is to give them a pep talk. Let them know how exciting it is that school is right around the corner. As you get excited, you’ll watch them get even more excited. It is like a chain reaction.
Let them help you prepare
When back to school season approaches, I let my kids get involved. Although we homeschool, I still let my kids get involved in the back to school shopping. Buying school clothes, buying school supplies, and getting our homeschool room ready is all part of the excitement. The kids love decorating their notebook and binders to get ready!
Do a back to school countdown
However, you choose to do it, this is such a fun way to get your kids excited for school. A back to school countdown is simple, yet the kids love it in so many ways. You can do a chain link countdown or a chalkboard countdown. You can make it as simple or elaborate as you’d like.
Do a trial run
School can be a ton of fun, as you know. It’s all in how the kids perceive it from the adults around them. When it comes to getting your kids excited for back to school, do a trial run. Let the kids put their school supplies in their backpacks. Remember to keep the attitude about it fun, light, and airy. Kids don’t need to feel such stress and pressure at such a young age.
Make the first day of school fun
When you finally get to the first day of school, get your kids excited about it. Wake them up to a fun back to school breakfast. Play some fun music in the morning and encourage your kids to be in a good mood. It’s never any fun to be sour on the first day of school. I always work hard to make sure my kids have a good attitude on the first day of school. Remember that you can only do so much though.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
