Cupcake Decorating: No party is complete without a classic cupcake decorating station. This will keep the kids busy for hours after dinner while the parent socializes and catch up from the hectic summer. Be sure to purchase fun back-to-school themed candy decorations!

DIY Bookmarks: Every child going back to school needs a bookmark! Have fun watching the kids making their very own. All you need are a few simple paper cut-outs and some yarn to make an epic bookmark you wouldn't be able to find at the store!
