Happy Monday! It’s the first day of school for lots of kids today, so I thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite back-to-school links from around the web!

1 |  Pretty much obsessed with these apple donuts from Your Homebased Mom that have been floating around Pinterest. Guys, they don’t actually require baking the donut, meaning I might just be able to pull them off. (Similar ruler donuts here.)

2 |  Tori from Piccoli Blog talked to a few teachers and shared tips for preparing your little ones for back to school. Love the advice shared on her blog, particularly the tip to avoid the over-hype.

3 |  The perfect back-to-school party from Oh Happy Day, complete with library card invitations and a chalkboard birthday cake with candy chalk. 

4 |  Charisse from Pixel Paper Hearts made the absolute cutest FREE first day of school printables to make those first day photos a little easier on you. Just download, print, and you’re ready to go!

5 |  These personalized “Hello My Name Is” tees from Petite Lemon would be the perfect back-to-school shirt for your little one! I’m sure their teacher would be much appreciative too. (Girls version here.)

6 |  Love the idea of including jokes in your kid’s lunch box. Doesn’t it just seem like the perfect way to brighten their day? Handmade Charlotte shared some pretty darling ones on her blog last week and she’ll be sharing more jokes every week through September.

7 |  The Honest Company teamed up with SoYoung to create a line of lunch packs with a touch of Honest flair. They even have one in Honest’s classic skull print!
8 |  Just a few of the cutest pencil cases for your littles here and here and here and here too!
