Back to School!📚✏️🖍



Hello friends! I can't believe school is almost here!! I love summer and here in Utah it's been in the hundreds, so hot! I am looking forward to fall and hoping it lasts for a while!

When I was brainstorming ideas for this blog, I kept thinking how I will now have two kids in school all day long. Bittersweet that's for sure. My second is starting first grade and she is my little shadow. She is really nervous to start school and be away from me all day. So I'm really trying to help get her excited and do some fun things to make this transition easier for her. And to also make it fun for my oldest!

First Day Of School Activities

"Jitter Juice"

I found the cutest idea revolving around the book First Day Jitters, and you make "Jitter Juice" along with it. I LOVED this idea! I found the book at Target

I just bought our favorite juice, ripped off the label, and made my own. Then used some whipped cream and sprinkles on top because, sprinkles make everything better.💜  

This was a hit for my girls, and the book is so cute! I highly recommend this one. 

Animal Fruit Snacks

Lunches are always difficult to get my head around. My oldest, Jordyn, is the pickiest eater on the planet! If it wasn't a PB&J, it was noodles with Parmesan cheese or a bagel and cream cheese for her lunch and some sides.

I am determined to change that this year. So I thought of fun ways to make eating fun and HOPEFULLY she will be more excited to mix it up a bit!🤞

It was actually really fun to get creative and make little animals and such. Here are a few ideas of what I did so hopefully it can give you some ideas!

I love, love, love all things Wilton. I found these adorable cookie cutters at Michael's and they were really inexpensive, especially with the 40% off coupon. And I just toss them in the dishwasher when I'm done.

For the eyes, I just used candy eyeballs. You can find them in the cake decorating sections at most grocery stores or craft stores. I just bought what fruit and veggies my kids will eat and let my inner artist come out!

Pita bread, turkey pepperoni, sliced deli turkey, cream cheese, peanut butter, it's all good!

School Supplies

My girls' school doesn't require too many supplies so I just grabbed a few inexpensive things from Target. I love their cute colors and my girls are obsessed with all things unicorns and rainbows! Just a few supplies to give them and hopefully they'll be excited to use their new things and put them in their backpacks! 

The adorable large signs you see are just an inexpensive pack from Michael's. I walked by them and loved what they said so I have put them in my house just for some words of encouragement before school starts. Simple, but very meaningful reminders that I think are important. 🙂

Kids Clothes for School


And can we talk about my girls ADORABLE outfits!? Even the little twinners are rockin' some of our Best Friends Hoodies while snackin' on some school food! 👯‍♀️ They're both wearing a 2T, which is right on the money and true to size for them. They're out of stock right now, but check out these other great hoodies!

Jordyn is wearing our White Floral Dress. The material on this one feels like butter and the colors are to die for! She is wearing a 3XL, running true to size for her as well. Check out the Sparkle In Pink dress collection for more dress options.

Little Miss Tennley is in one of our faves! Our Burgundy Leopard Hoodie which is also a Mommy & Me set! 🙌 These have been some of our top sellers. So soft and cute and perfect for fall! She is wearing an XL. True to size.

Writing this blog has gotten me excited for school myself! I love seeing my kids thrive and coming home to tell me about their day. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer and that the new school year is one of the best for your families.

Please stay tuned for the next HAIR TUTORIAL blog coming in the next week or two! We have had tons of you ask for some pointers and how-to's for some of our model's hairdo's and wanting some more ideas. So be sure to keep an eye out for that one.

    I’m ready to see tons of fall and Halloween costumes. I’m really into the movie grease type costumes right now. Maybe like car hop type things as well.

    I love the jitter juice idea and the lunch ideas. My daughters school is nut free and she mainly only eats pb&J for lunch so I have been trying to figure out something she will eat! I wish we could buy the long sleeve stuff but it never gets cold enough here :( Excited for the hair tutorial and would like to see some party ideas for upcoming holidays.

  • Jessie Cozzens


    I would love to see some creative ideas for fall with all the apples we pick at the orchard! Also, my kids love to cook, so some general simple ( but also fun and cute ) cooking ideas that they can make themselves!
    Quick and healthy weekday dinners for school nights! I’m sure I’m not the only momma running from school pick up to several activities, and some new quick ideas are always welcome to switch things up!
    Mixing and matching with the outfits, either to coordinate siblings (not matchy matchy), or just different looks you can make with one piece.

    I would love to see more lunch ideas. My daughter has a huge appetite this wouldn’t hardly even be a snack for her. Also would love to see some ideas for mix matching for family pictures. I don’t want to match completely but love to be similar.

    Love the cute snack ideas! My little one is in preschool so we don’t pack snacks yet but I will keep these in mind when I make snacks at home! I would love to see cute art projects to do with children and I love seeing the cute clothes on the kids. I would also love to see more blogs on closet storage ideas! Love Sparkle in Pink! I wish I could buy every outfit!

    You asked what the next blog should be…. maybe you could do a blog on how to mix and match outfits for family Fall pictures. We always do our family pictures in the fall and use them to send out for Christmas cards. Would love to see how you guys would put outfits together for boys and girls and even moms!

    I really enjoyed this month’s blog, especially the section on the creative lunch ideas! My daughter isn’t in school yet but is a picky eater at home. I’m having the hardest time making her try things and not eat the same thing over and over. I would love more tips for mom’s who have picky kids. Kids that are picky about food, books, how I do her hair, etc.
