Back to school DIY
Back-to-school season is upon us and that means one thing: the school supplies list is coming soon! Before you know it, your life will be taken over with getting backpacks, pencils, tissues, notebooks, and more. While this may be an exciting and busy time, if your kid is sad to see summer go, you may need to enlist their help to make some of their own school supplies from scratch to kick up their enthusiasm (along with these encouraging back-to-school quotes to keep them motivated).
These DIY school supplies and crafts are easy to make at home and some even use items you may already have around the house. School supplies can be expensive and making them at home will cost you less money and time in the long run, and your kids will appreciate having their unique supplies stand out. Plus, making them at home will give them more time to pick out their highly anticipated first-day outfits.
Trying to dream up an easy and cheap back-to-school DIY project? Well, my DIY senses are overflowing with ideas since back-to-school season is one of the most exciting times of the year for us moms and the kids! So if you are ready to dive into the fun with me, grab your liquid chalk markers and let me show you one of the coolest and easiest chalkboard art ideas you can use for a back-to-school DIY project.
First on the list of school supplies that every kid needs are notebooks. And buying notebooks with nifty cover designs can be very expensive, especially if you need a whole load of them. Why not make your own instead?
See how easy this back-to-school chalkboard art DIY project is to make? You can even do it with your kids! It is a great way to boost their confidence and pride in their creativity, as they show off their personalized DIY chalkboard notebooks to their friends on the first day of class. The unique flair that chalkboard art gives your notebooks will definitely turn heads!

2. Assemble your jumbo craft sticks together to make a school bus. Start by gluing four craft sticks together with tacky glue to make a box. Use three yellow craft sticks for the top three sides of the box and a silver craft stick for the bottom side of the box.
5. Glue two red craft jewels at the bottom of the school bus for brake lights. Print off the license plate template. Cut out one of the license plates and glue it at the bottom of the school bus. Let the school bus photo frame dry completely.
As an emergency room nurse practitioner, Creech has seen firsthand what the pandemic is doing, and, she says, she's been treating a lot of teenagers during the current COVID-19 surge. That has made her particularly nervous about high schoolers crowding into classrooms. And she is not alone.
The materials cost somewhere between $70 and $120, and the box should last an entire school year. The original idea for this DIY air purifier comes from Richard Corsi, the incoming dean of engineering at the University of California, Davis.
Many schools have bought HEPA-based air purifiers or other well-studied technologies for improving air quality. But these solutions can be costly. And Corsi worries about the school districts that aren't doing anything or are turning to solutions that haven't been proven.
For years, researchers have been warning of the dangers of indoor air quality in schools. Studies have shown that students do better when there's better ventilation in schools: test scores go up, and fewer sick days.
