First Day of School Mama Coffee Time Free Printables and Ideas
A few years ago, {when both of my boys were still in preschool, actually}, a few of us would get together on the first day of school for what we referred to as the "Boohoo/Yahoo Coffee Time" {some mamas would be high-fiving, others wiping away the tears}. It seems like we all have mixed emotions on the big day...and that's okay. See below for some simple ideas and free printables for your first day of school coffee>>>

What I loved about previous first day of school gatherings with friends was the casualness of it all. Nothing fancy...just a time to get together and reflect on another school year beginning. Most of us would be in yoga pants, a few would have smaller children, but all of us were there together...that whole sisterhood solidarity vibe ringing out among us. And that's what I'd love to encourage you to do with your fellow moms...nothing elaborate or fancy. Just coffee time. Grab some muffins, maybe a bit of fruit and then set up a little area where everyone can help themselves. And of course...don't forget the coffee {or the creamer!}.

You can send out invites...or even just texts. Keep it casual so nobody has to stress! Getting back into the school routine is stressful enough for everyone. But, if you do send something out, be sure to download these freebies! Stick them under windshields of the new moms, too...the ones who may be looking for a friend {moms need friends, too}.

{And good grief...would someone please hand me a comb to run through my hair before taking a photo? Yeesh.}

Having flavored creamers available is always fun! {It just wouldn't be a good coffee time without them!} These yummy International Delight ones have such a wide variety of flavors. And I'm super excited that my store now has the fat free/sugar free ones...perfect for my diet {errr...healthy lifestyle}.

Keeping it simple! You could even ask everyone to bring a baked good or fruit dish to spread out the work load. And be sure to grab the free printable menu cards below for your coffee time. There are blank ones, too, if you'd like to fill in your own menu items.

The 8x10 school bus printable in the background is available below, too. The wording on the bus reads, "And they're off!". Here's to hoping your family has a great start to the school year!
