10 chalkboard crafts for back to school

Chalkboard round up-Back-to-School

Want to get organized for back to school? Love all the fabulous ideas you’ve seen using chalkboard paint?

Every year I promise myself that I’ll get a better system for organizing the daunting amounts of paper that comes home…yeah, right! {smirk} So, I gathered these great ideas to inspire all moms in their never-ending endeavor to get organized (and stay that way!)

  • School Notes Chalkboard via Kaboose is an adorable way to leave you and your kids notes for each day (and so much cuter than my little post-it’s everywhere!)
  • Back to School Slate via Mommy Creations is a portable way to keep little ones learning.
  • Chalkboard Table via My{not so} Glamorous Life makes great place for little ones to practice early math, reading and writing skills.
  • Chalkboard Desk via The Rustic Pig will help keep all those school supplies organized for homework time. Besides, what kiddo doesn’t want to have furniture he can write on?!
  • First Day of School Sign via Who Arted will leave no doubt what year you took that photo!
  • Chalkboard Calendar via PSA Stamp Camp lets you track your students busy lives.
  • Chalkboard Clothespins via create share inspire gives every little scrap a home (and a label).
  • Back-to-School Paper Holder via Seasons Gredings gives you a labelled place to keep all those loose papers that come home daily.
  • Back-to-School Teacher Gift via Mom Endeavors is a charming way to start the school year off right.
  • Chalkboard Lunchbox via Fancy Frugal Life let’s you leave sweet notes and reminders for your little student.

As always, we hope you are inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

back to school teacher gift + printable


Hello there! I’m Deanna, event designer and editor of Mirabelle Creations. I’m so happy to be here at The Celebration Shoppe, sharing a super simple back to school teacher appreciation craft that you can do with your kiddos!

All teachers love a little something at the beginning of the school year and these Edible School “Glue” Sticks, inspired by the traditional Elmer’s Washable Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks, and fun “So happy to be stuck with you this year!” free printables are a great way to show your appreciation. Plus, they are easy for little hands because they’re simply filled with York Peppermint Pieces candies! But a warning, make sure you have extras because while making these as many candies went into my helpers’ mouths as did into the containers!

The idea for these Edible School “Glue” Sticks came to me last week while shopping for school supplies with my kids and a school supplies themed craft for the teachers seemed like a great way to start off the school-year.

What you’ll need:

And here are the simple steps:

  1. Fill the bottom of the push-up-pops container with a layer of blue candies, about ½ inch thick. Fill the remainder of the push-up-pops container with white candies.
  2. Tape the top of the push-up-pops container closed.
  3. Cut two pieces of orange ribbon, the length of the circumference of the container.
  4. Fold one piece of ribbon in half, lengthwise, securing it with glue dots. Attach it around the bottom edge of the push-up-pops container using the glue dots.
  5. Wrap the other piece of ribbon around the top of the push-up-pops, securing to the bottom edge of the container lid. The taller ribbon at the top will mimic the cap of the glue stick.
  6. Print the Edible School “Glue” Stick label on a full sheet of white sticker paper or regular paper and attach with tape.
  7. Print the I’m so happy to be “stuck” with you tag on cardstock. Punch out the tag and attach with string or ribbon.

Now you’re all set to show your teachers how excited you are about this new school year! Enjoy!

And as always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
