The other day, I asked my 3 girls “Who’s excited to go back to school?” I got an eye roll from our high schooler but my 5th and 7th grader shouted, “Me, me!” Truth is even when I was a kid, this mom looked forward to the 1st day of school and all the awesome possibility a new school year promised.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’d go for endless Summer days at the beach over early mornings and homework any day but when it’s time to hit the books, a little creativity goes a long way in sparking their excitement. So before my girls and I headed out to by the long list of new supplies, we looked through last year’s leftovers to see what could use a ‘makeover’.

I’m loving how our youngest daughter used just a few strips of this adorable musical note Duck Tape to give her recorder for music class it’s very own unique style.
Now my big 5th grader is even more excited for school to start and mom’s happy because now we don’t have to worry about her supplies getting mixed up with anyone else’s in the class either. yay.
And, since her spruced up recorder and stylin’ case turned out so fun we decided to decorate and personalize a folder to match.
We had some crazy crafting fun; kids of all ages love working with this versatile craft meduim. And, the fact we didn’t need any extra supplies like glue, staples, etc for our Deck Tape upcycle was a plus. I just handed over the roll and let her creativity go!
