When my kids were in preschool, they both looked forward to turning 4. This is when they were allowed to take the school bus and go on field trips with the rest of their classmates. That was extremely exciting! For both them and me. I enjoyed volunteering and being a field trip chaperon.  Thus I got to ride a school bus for the first time.

I grew up in Romania and we would always walk to school. My elementary school was a block away from our apartment building. The high school was another story. It involved a 20-minute walk. But we were older so we didn’t mind it. Rain or shine we would walk to school.

This year both my boys will go to school and will get to ride the school bus together every day. I hope they won’t fight over the window seat, though. There are lots of kids on our street taking the same bus so they will be with friends and neighbors and I love that.

When we crafted our school bus shape card, my oldest asked me if that was for the bus driver? Any of the school bus crafts below, can make a fun little gift for your bus drivers. Give it to them on the first day of school. It will put a big smile on their face.

Somehow our collection of 100+ easy crafts for kids doesn’t contain too many back to school crafts. But this is something to work on this autumn. We do have plenty of fall crafts that you can do at home with your kids once they come back from school.
