We’re in full back-to-school mode in my home (!!!). I’ve been coming up with my lesson plans, preparing all the materials for my students, and I’m gearing up to get back in to the school to arrange my classroom. One fun “extra” I like to do for my students on the first day is provide a back-to-school welcome note with a small treasure or treat. Many teachers will do the same thing and include a cute quote. I like to take this back-to-school treat and slip one into my sons’ lunch boxes for their first day back as well. After all, they’re “my students” too. Here are 10 adorable back-to-school treats for students. Three cheers for back-to-school!
1. A+ Lunch
This back-to-school lunch gets an A+! Stock your Little Student up with all their school supplies and more. Get more details from Living Lorcurto.
2. The Olives On The Bus
This cute bus sandwich will have the bus going round and round! I LOVE this idea! It will be in my sons’ lunches for their first day back at school. Learn how to make it from Parents.com. Look at the tomato stop sign!

4. Chalkboard Messages
Leave a message on the chalkboard for your student’s first day back at school. You can use either the flat side of a chocolate bar or a smooth brownie for the base. Wipe powdered sugar on the treat before decorating to give it a more authentic chalkboard look. Learn more here.
