Want to throw your back homeschool party?

First things first, I totally understand the busy mom life! That’s why I aimed for simplicity while planning this gathering. However, the allure of infusing creativity into the event was irresistible, especially when I considered how much my kids would adore it and how it could instantly spark their excitement for the upcoming school days.

Given my kids’ enthusiasm for our Poetry Teatimes, I decided to center our back-to-homeschool party around that theme, keeping things wonderfully uncomplicated.

I scoured the web for back-to-school poems and printed them out for our reading pleasure during the party. As for snacks and decorations, I drew inspiration from various blogs and websites, seamlessly weaving them together into a cohesive setup.

Guess what? You can totally pull this off too! I’m happy to share all the resources I utilized to create our memorable party, so you can effortlessly orchestrate your captivating back-to-homeschool bash. Let’s make this school year’s beginning truly exceptional!

Back to Homeschool Party Table Setting

We got the table setting from A Girl and A Glue Gun. I loved these printables. All I had to do was download them and print them. Once they were printed, I decided to laminate them so I could reuse them next year if it all turned out well.  Once I laminated them, I cut them out and used them to decorate the table.

We love our laminator, and these are great laminating sheets if you are looking.

Back to Homeschool Party Banner

We got the Back to School banners that were both on our wall and our table also from A Girl and A Glue Gun.  All I had to do was download and print.

Of course, I laminated this also. After laminating, I cut it out and punched some holes into the corners of each pencil. Then we laced some string through the pencils and hung them up with command strips.

Back to Homeschool Party Photo Props

Photos documenting the new school year and the fun at the party are necessary! That is why I couldn’t help downloading and printing these photo props from Beyond Good Intentions with Kristen Duke.

All I had to do again was download the printable, print, laminate (optional), cut out, and paste onto popsicle sticks or straws. They helped us create fun memories of this year back to homeschool party.

Back to Homeschool Party Snacks

Update, over the last few years of doing this party, we have tried out a few different snacks. For our first party, I made Sugar Wafer Pencil Cookies which were surprisingly simple.

Trust me. I was stressed out, thinking it would end up like a HOT MESS! However, they turned out pretty cute. We got the recipe from Shaken Together Life.

These are how ours turned out.

Some other treats we tried were these adorable Rice Krispy treat rulers from A Cultivated Nest, and the kids helped to make these which was a lot of fun. This year I was at a loss of what to make that they will actually both enjoy eating. So I kept it simple and made waffles.

Back to Homeschool Party Activities

Once you have all the decorations and snacks set up, you need activities. We kept it simple because it needed to be, and it turned out great.

We first read some poetry related to school. I couldn’t find poetry about being homeschooled, so we stuck with traditional school poems and found some great ones accessible on the internet. All I had to do was print them! These are the ones we used.

Reading poetry about school, inspired my oldest to create some Homeschool Poetry, a great activity to do during the party. All you need is some paper and colorful pens. My daughter had so much fun doing this; she created her own poetry book with these blank books.

Another thing we did was these Back to Homeschool Interviews, which set the tone for our party. It asked questions along the lines of their current favorite things and their goals for this school year. What is something school and not school-related that they are excited about this year and something they enjoyed last year? This interview prompted us to have a fun dance party featuring their current favorite songs.

Sharing the Back to Homeschool Party Planning Load

Believe me, orchestrating a Back to Homeschool Party doesn’t need to be a solo mission. I initially embarked on planning and organizing it as a surprise, but I soon discovered that my kids were excited and eager to be part of the action.

Involving them was an unexpectedly delightful turn of events. They were enthusiastic to lend a hand and immerse themselves in the process. After all, following instructions for crafts, whipping up recipes, and even taking charge of party preparations are invaluable life skills that seamlessly integrate into our homeschooling curriculum. So, why not harness the opportunity to let them shine and contribute to the party’s success? Not only does it make the workload lighter, but it also imparts practical skills that will serve them well beyond the classroom.
