An Easy Way to Celebrate the Start of School

This week we’ve had a lot of chit chat about back-to-school season. Most of the kids here started daycare this week and Maxi’s MDO program will start shortly. As new seasons of life start back, I’m all for starting a tradition. A pizza night with family the first Friday of school. A date with mom the Friday before starting her schooling journey at a local child care and daycare center. Reading a specific book the night before they start a new classroom. I’m not sure what your traditions are, but I’d love to know them! I’ve been scrolling my Instagram feed seeing so many moms share their traditions and I find them all to be magical. They don’t seem that way because they are over-the-top or ridiculous to pull off. In fact, sometimes it is the opposite. My mom would make her Chicken Lynn casserole the first night of school each year and to this day, it’s my favorite meal! I could DRINK up the Pyrex dish each time. In the spirit of making new memories, I am sharing how to use a piece of furniture you probably already have and make dessert time with family that first week even sweeter. If you have a toddler, I can attest they will think this is so much fun!

Today, I’m sharing how you can make a little Yasso cart! Yasso is our favorite frozen greek yogurt treats- you can get them at Target. I took a bar cart, but truly, you can use any side table you have. I just think bar carts are quite fun to repurpose for specific occasions. Fill the cart with some classic Yasso flavors {or whichever ones you have on hand}, fill bowls of sprinkles, and decorate with books or items to commemorate the seasons your children have started. I used these little pennants if you were to throw a back-to-school neighborhood party! Let your little ones dip their bars into all the sprinkles they love and enjoy in this heat. This truly took me 5 minutes to set up, but still felt really special. I’d just have a pizza night with family and do this. You could even include this cart in a birthday party for the future.

I hope this gives you some ideas for things you might already have to set this up with! Let me know if you try it for hosting or any traditions. Did your family have back-to-school traditions?!
