Five on Friday: Back to School

Last night highlighted that the summer was over because Greg went back to school.  The fall semester started and he spent all night learning about sustainable engineering.  With students heading back to school this week and next week, I thought a back to school themed five on friday was needed.

Let’s get started with the best back to school commercial ever.

Now on to the Five on Friday!

1. Laura’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

What better way to relax and do homework than with a White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bar.  Osk, this selection was clear inspired by nepotism since Laura is my sister.  She dropped off a few of these bars for us and they are delicious.   Maybe make them on a friday as a reward for a hard week of school or as a treat for completing all homework

2. Red Solo Cup Koozie

Perfect school item for college age students.  The red koozie holds a beer, a soda, or a bottle.  If you want to go to party but don’t want to drink, bust this sucker out and put a soda in it and no one will know.

3. Book Bag Wall

A great way to organize school work and activities for the children in your life.  The hooks will probably work through middle school but if most kids have homework like I did at Gwynedd Mercy Academy, then a forklift would be more appropriate to hold the backpack.  My dad likes to tell the story of how one morning my sister put her backpack on and fell on her back like a flipped turtle.

4. Reusable Lunch Bag

Easy to make and very customizable for the recipient.  As a big eco-friendly household, we love the idea of a reusable lunch bag.  Greg uses his everyday and I used to use one when I worked outside the house.  Now I just use reusable shopping bags for everything.

5. Custom built in desk

Greg already this is on our to do list.  One day I would love to have a custom desk in our office instead of two mismatched desks with a piece of ikea furniture for desk storage.   Any student would benefit from a custom desk!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
