Even though I hate to admit it, a brand new school year is right around the corner. In order to help make the transition from summertime to back-to-school time a little more interesting and fun I thought I would feature cool creative projects for students of all ages to make, bake and decorate.

Speed Erasers ...
As an art teacher "retired" from teaching in a private school I issue a word of advice - If you make these erasers with your child - Please don't let them take their erasers, with removable parts (thumbtacks) to school! That being said - I think this erasable craft is the coolest! Find the instructions here
For a nutritional snack
You can chew on these pencils - seriously!

For any parent cheering on a brand new school year:
"Because frankly we are one Post-It note away from a three-ring breakdown."
