{GWD Parties} Preparing for School Party with Free Printables!

A few weeks ago, I had a small party for my son and one of his best friends, Lauren. They were in school together this Summer for a short little session but both were heading off to different schools this Fall first their first real school experience.

The theme of the whole party was Reach And You Will Learn, Grow, Create and Inspire. It's so much fun to inspire your children to grow and learn and you can do that so easily by creating a wonderful environment for them to explore!

Dashell was SO excited to have Lauren over for a special party!! (And it doesn't hurt that her mom is one of my best friends, Rebekah from Blissful Nest, so I was pretty excited to get to spend a little time with her too!) He helped me get all the decorations ready. We made homemade play dough (recipe here on and a couple different fun wall decorations.
(directions and tips for these here on

He helped me decorate the cake and label all the items we were going to put out for the party.

On the day of the party I set up a table full of things for the kids to explore and experience and they had a blast!! (More decorating details here on 

They had so much fun, in fact, that we didn't want to keep all the good times to ourselves so below are tons of FREE PRINTABLES so that you can label personal items...
