Are your kids excited for the first day of school? I can’t believe the month of September is already just around the corner!

This year, our family will have TWO kids in school for the first time. So naturally, we’ve been looking for fun activities that say “Welcome to school!” to our five-year-old and “Welcome back to school!” to our six-year-old.

We’ve made a few school-themed crafts recently that our kids loved, including a Recycled Milk Carton School Bus and some adorable Air-Dry Clay Pencil Toppers.

But since I do need to find the time to cook and clean at some point during the day, it’s nice to have an easy activity on hand that I can just print and let my kids do on their own.

And since you may find yourself in the same boat, I thought I’d share these colouring sheets with you so your kids can enjoy them too!
