The transition from lazy summer days back to a strict school schedule can be tough on kids. I like to decorate the house a bit to help the kids get excited for the change.
Before I tell you about our back to school banner, though, I wanted to let you know about a easy opportunity to help out the Adopt a Classroom foundation through Great Clips #GREATLIST program — all you have to do is download a free app!
Great Clips recently launched a super-convenient Online Check-In App that lets you add your name to the waiting list at your local Great Clips salon (with more than 3,300 salons throughout the United States and Canada, there is bound to be one near you). It’s not an appointment — what it does is let you add your name to the list before arriving at the salon to help save you time, and more time definitely comes in handy during the back to school rush.
The best part is when you download the FREE Online Check-In app, Great Clips will donate to the Adopt a Classroom cause. According to AdoptAC, on average teachers spend $1,000 of their own money to make sure their students have the resources they need to learn. Great Clips has pledged up to $20,000 to AdoptAC and every download of the free Online Check-In app helps.
Onto the fun banner… we created this free printable Hit the Books banner to hang on our mantle. The skinny, decorative pennants are inspired by bookmarks, and we think this would look adorable next to a stack of vintage books. We hung our banner on twine using these fun, industrial-looking bulldog clips.
Be sure to check back later this week when we’ll be sharing a whole collection of printables to help you throw a fun Back to School breakfast for your kids.
Many thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring today’s post.
