and finally we have Simple Everyday Mom sharing fun ideas to ease the worry and fear some of our littles feel.

Start off the school year with a fun craft to get them excited to learn while having fun. This pencil name craft is a good one to start with since they will need to know how to spell their name once they’re in school.
