Run the template off on light green construction paper.back to school activities, back to school ideas, back to school treats, back to school treat bags, ideas for the first day of school, 1st day of school ideas, icebreakers, back to school treats, treats for the first day of school, gifts for the first day of school

If you want, buy a 100 Grand candy bar for each child and include that as an extra special TAKE IT HOME treat.

You can also wait, and take a first-day photo of each student.

To make cutting ovals of student photos quick and easy, make an oval template by printing off mine.

Trim and then trace onto a sheet of clear contact paper, lamination scrap or overhead projector paper, and trim.

You may want to make extra copies and turn this into a back-to-school bulletin board.

Die cut black and green letters to say: "We’re having a grand time in (grade)." Alternate the letters in an ABAB color pattern.  A yellow background will really make your board pop.
