Today was the first day of our homeschool year. I decided to make schultutes to celebrate the occasion. Schultutes are cones filled with little school supplies and treats. It is a festive way of celebrating the first day. Here is the tutorial I used for guidance on how to make one.
Like Japanese bento lunches, schultutes can get very elaborate.
Though ours were simple, I think they helped our family as we strive to get back into the homeschool routine after a fun, less structured summer. It was a bright spot in our morning and softened the transition for the little ones.
