Sparkle Weekly Wonderings

Here we go! School starts next week here in Austin, Texas. In our house, we’re talking new schedules and first-day jitters. We’re making shopping lists, new classmate connections, and devising homework strategies while encouraging deep breathing and can-do mindsets.

Are you feeling it at your house?

If your children have a case of the back-to-school butterflies, we’ve got great content for you – from stories that will help ease those jitters to parent tutorials that offer ideas and suggestions from long-time educators. We also have recipes and projects that can make the return to school that much more fun and creative. You’ll find it all below!

Is there a back-to-school story experience you’re needing that we don’t yet address? Let us know! We’d love to give you the support you need to make a gentle and sweet transition to school.
